A Waldorf, Md., man faces charges after being busted for allegedly selling drugs out of an ice cream truck.
After receiving a tip through Crime Solvers, Charles County sheriff’s deputies found bags of marijuana and a stash of cash in a truck operated by 20-year-old Alexander Hoskins, authorities said.
“Ice cream or marijuana, you can take your pick with this guy,” said Diane Richardson, of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.
Police stopped the truck at Bayswater Court and Sheffield Circle. They found the marijuana and cash in Hoskins’s underwear.
He apparently had been dealing from the truck for some time, according to the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.
“We wish we got that call just a bit sooner so we could have found more drugs, but what we did find was significant enough to show that he had been dealing it, and for us, we’re removing a drug dealer off the streets,” Richardson said.
Hoskins was selling to teens and young adults through word of mouth, authorities said.
He was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Hoskins is out on bond and out of business, authorities said. He won’t be selling ice cream again anytime soon.
