FROM SUBJECT IN BALTIMORE COUNTY

 

BALTIMORE, MD – On Monday, Dec. 17, 2018, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police arrested a Baltimore County man who was in possession of a loaded handgun and drugs.

 

An MDTA Police officer checked the welfare of a driver who was stopped on the shoulder along I-695 near Exit 33 (I-95) and appeared to be slumped over his steering wheel. After waking the driver, the officer detected the odor of marijuana coming from the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Zachary Shumaker, a 23-year-old male from Rosedale, MD was identified to be the driver and was asked to exit his vehicle, a 2003 Toyota Tacoma. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, officers located a loaded handgun, ammunition, heroin and marijuana.

 

The MDTA Police charged Shumaker with transporting a firearm in a motor vehicle, illegal possession of ammunition, illegal possession of a regulated firearm, a disqualified person possessing a regulated firearm, possession of marijuana and possession of heroin.

 

After processing, officers transported Shumaker to the Baltimore County District Court Commissioner. He is being held without bail pending trial.
