Heroin found

Ocean City Police arrested a local man after they found two bags of heroin on his person last Sunday.

Around 10:30 a.m., police stopped a Ford Edge near 146th Street after they noticed the driver, Jack Wyler Jr., 37, was not wearing a seatbelt.

Wyler had a fresh scrape on his cheek and appeared to be nervous, police said.

A K-9 unit did not detect any narcotics in the car, but when officers searched Wyler, they found two wax bags containing suspected heroin in his waistband.

Assault alleged

A local teenager was arrested after he allegedly assaulted his mother’s boyfriend around 2:22 a.m. last Saturday.

Police were called to a residence on Captain’s Quarters Road for a fight in progress. When they arrived, they found a man in front of the house with an abrasion on the left side of his face and a swollen forehead.

He said his girlfriend’s son, Christopher Gray, 19, had struck him after he came home from a bar. Gray also allegedly struck another person in the altercation, according to reports. Gray was charged with two counts of assault.

Drug charges

A Maryland couple faces drug charges after Ocean City police stopped them for driving over the speed limit on Coastal Highway on Saturday night.

Around 7:14 p.m., police saw a Chevrolet Malibu near 18th Street head south on the highway at 50 mph. When an officer stopped the car around Eighth Street, he noticed the driver, Chelsea Ruszkiewicz, 25, of Rosedale, Maryland, had blood on her hand.

Ruszkiewicz told police that she fought with her boyfriend, Ian D. Ugol, 26, of Ellicott City, and punched a wall in anger. Police continued to question the couple and, after receiving permission to search the car, found eight syringes and nine vials containing a white substance in the trunk.

In Ruszkiewicz’s purse, officers found a metal spoon with apparent heroin residue on it as well as a pipe.

After both were arrested, Ruszkiewicz allegedly told police she used the pipe to smoke cocaine.

Ruszkiewicz was charged with heroin and cocaine possession and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. Ugol was charged with heroin possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
