Police Make Arrest After Driver Flees from Traffic Stop

July 28th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

On July 27th, 2020, an Officer with the Cumberland City Police conducted a traffic stop in on Interstate 68 in the area of Fletcher Ave. Contact was made with the occupants of the vehicle, including the male operator who was found to have given the officer a false name. During the course of the traffic stop, the male exited the vehicle and fled the area on foot. After a brief foot pursuit, the subject was apprehended in the area of Greene St. A subsequent search of the male subject yielded a quantity of suspected heroin indicating intentions to sell the same. A firearm was also located inside the suspect’s vehicle during a subsequent search. The subject, Johnathon Ray Cook, 34, of Accident MD, was also found to be prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm. As a result, Cook was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession of heroin, fail to obey, resisting arrest, possession of firearm in connection with drug trafficking crime, illegal possession of firearm, fleeing, driving suspended/revoked. Cook was taken to the Allegany County Detention Center on a temporary commitment.

Arrested:  Johnathon Ray Cook          Age: 34, Accident MD

    We might as well call the country done and stick a fork in it if we have junkies even in towns of 312 folks. We have the opportunity to do so in just 98 days.

    My nephew Johnathon is a good boy. He’s had some setbacks recently but we thought that his joining the Trump re-election committee here in Garret county was a first step on his road to recovery. He’s a solid Republican and a true American patriot.

      > NONE of the comments do what you claim they ALL do but, I suppose, you have your own wee concept of reality that you really, really feel should be respected in these bizarre times.
