No bail for Hagerstown man facing firearms, drug charges | Local News


A Hagerstown man was denied bond Wednesday after being charged with firearm and drug offenses following a search of his room at a Williamsport hotel.

Mobella Moses Adams, 27, of Key Avenue, was charged with possession of a handgun in a drug trafficking crime, possession of a fentanyl and heroin mixture with intent to distribute, being a felon in possession of a firearm and other offenses.

The Washington County Narcotics Task Force used an informant to make a controlled purchase of crack cocaine from a man in a room at the Red Roof Inn on East Potomac Street, according to the charging document. The informant told agents there was a handgun in the room.

The room was placed under surveillance while a search warrant was being obtained, the document said. A man, later identified as Adams, left the room and drove off in an SUV, which police pulled over on northbound Interstate 81, the document said.

When the room was searched police found two handguns, one of them loaded, along with 50 rounds of ammunition, the document said.

Police also said they found 32 capsules that tested positive for a fentanyl and heroin mixture; 49 Alprazolam pills; a knotted plastic bag containing crack cocaine; digital scales and $844 in cash, the document said.

Adams had been renting the room since Nov. 6, the document said.

Adams was prohibited from possessing firearms due to a 2019 conviction in Washington County for possession with intent to distribute marijuana, the document said.
