Antoine Gerald Herbert (Age 28 of Mechanicsville) was identified as a distributor of cocaine. St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for suspect Herbert’s Mechanicsville home. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Team (EST), K-9, and Vice/Narcotics Support Team deputies assisted in executing the search warrant. As an EST member entered the hallway, they encountered suspect Herbert. Suspect Herbert failed to follow commands and was believed to be destroying evidence by flushing cocaine down the toilet. The said cocaine was unable to be recovered. Other items of evidence recovered included cocaine, six cellular phones, nearly $800.00 in cash, two glass containers with cocaine residue and a glass microwave tray with cocaine residue which indicated “crack” cocaine manufacturing.
Suspect Herbert was arrested, and additional charges are pending a review with State’s Attorney Richard D. Fritz. At the time of his arrest, suspect Herbert was out on bond from December 31, 2016, an incident which occurred in Charles County, Maryland and involved a handgun and fleeing from police.
Inquiries should be directed to Captain Daniel D. Alioto, Commander of Vice/Narcotics, at 301-475-4200, ext *1918.
