January 16th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

On 01/15/2016 Cumberland Police officers arrested two local men on CDS related charges after a traffic stop downtown.  While on routine patrol, a Cumberland City Police officer stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation on a S. Centre Street parking lot.  The officer contacted the operator and a passenger in the vehicle and requested a K-9 respond to the scene.  A K-9 free air sniff of the vehicle was conducted which indicated the presence of CDS.  A search of the vehicle and occupants resulted in the arrest of both occupants and the recovery of suspected Heroin, prescription Oxycodone and CDS paraphernalia.  As a result Matthew William Hare, 25, of Cresaptown and Logan Tanner Nies, 21, of Cumberland were arrested and transported to Cumberland Police Headquarters where they were charged with the following:

Matthew W. Hare:

Possession of CDS : Not Marijuana – 2 counts

Possession of CDS Paraphernalia – 1 count

Logan T. Nies:

Possession of CDS: Not Marijuana – 1 count

Possession of CDS: Paraphernalia – 2 counts

Both Hare and Nies were taken for a preliminary hearing before a District Court Commissioner.  Both were released on their personal recognizance pending trial.
