At 2:34 a.m. July 13, Trooper Hill of the LaPlata barrack was on routine patrol on northbound Old Washington Road when he observed the operator of a black Chevrolet Avalanch cross the center line on two occasions.

Trooper Hill stopped the vehicle for the traffic violation. Upon contact with the driver, Joshua Matthew Gleason, 25, of Waldorf, the trooper detected a strong odor of alcoholic beverage.

When the driver exited his vehicle for a field sobriety test, Trooper Hill observed in plain view, one clear plastic baggie containing numerous small pills fall from the lap of the driver.

The plastic baggie contained suspected MDMA (Ecstasy).

Gleason performed poorly on all roadside sobriety test and was placed under arrest. A check through MVA revealed that Gleason’s driving privilege was suspended through Maryland.

Gleason received several traffic citations and was also charged with Possession of CDS not marijuana and Possession of CDS paraphernalia. He was incarcerated in the Charles County Detention Center pending a bond review.
