(Aug. 3, 2018) Cody Lee Hudson, 33, of Dagsboro, Delaware was arrested on July 20 for two counts of felony drug distribution after police reportedly uncovered more than 2,400 bags of heroin at a residence in Whaleyville.
In total, police reported 2,472 individually wrapped bags of heroin, 19.5 grams of cocaine and a loaded handgun were found inside the home where Hudson was allegedly located.
Hudson faces two additional felony charges for possession of a large amount of heroin and possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime.
Police also charged Hudson with misdemeanor possession of cocaine and heroin, along with a pair of misdemeanor gun charges.
The Sheriff’s Office said the drugs were located through an investigation into a heroin distribution ring.
The Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team was assisted by the Worcester County STAR Team, the Worcester County States Attorney’s Office and the Ocean City Police Department, during the execution of a search and seizure warrant.
Hudson, who was subsequently held without bond at the Worcester County Jail, has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Aug. 21 in Worcester County District Court.
