Heroin Highway to Hell / Special Education Teacher Monica Snee nabbed with load of heroin, pills, and cash at Parkside High
Student nabbed with drugs after fighting with deputy who lit him up with a taser
SALISBURY, MD. — The arrest of a junkie employed as a teacher on charges of allegedly dealing heroin at Parkside High School in Salisbury was bookended by the arrest of a student on drug possession charges at the same school a few days later. The teacher had a large amount of heroin and oxy along with a bundle of cash, indicating she had a good day selling heroin to students. A booking photo of the teacher, identified as Monica Wendy Snee, should make her a candidate for being a poster girl for National Heroin Week – if there is such an event.
Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis reports that narcotics detectives on November 14, 2017, determined through their investigation into the distribution of controlled dangerous substances by a teacher with the Wicomico County School System resulted in the arrest of Snee.
Police say that in October investigators with the Sheriff’s Office identified Snee as being active in the distribution of both heroin and prescription medications. Throughout the investigation, it was gleaned that Snee, of 6145 Westbrooke Drive, Salisbury, Md., was allegedly involved with these illicit sales at several locations throughout Wicomico County including the grounds of Parkside High School where she was employed.
Armed with a search warrant, on Nov 14th, just before 3:00 PM, deputies stopped Snee’s vehicle as she drove from the Parkdale school grounds. During the ensuing search of her vehicle, the deputies recovered over 100 capsules containing what was identified as heroin. A further search of the vehicle also revealed hundreds of oxycodone pills and a small amount of suboxone strips. Snee did not have a prescription of either the oxycodone or the suboxone nor was they in a proper prescription container.
Police say that Snee was in possession of almost $3,000.00 in cash along with a supply of empty plastic baggies. Based on the amount of drugs seized they appeared destined for distribution by Snee. Snee was transported to the Sheriff’s Office where she was processed and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner. Following an initial appearance, the Commissioner detained Snee in the Detention Center pending a bond review in front of a District Court Judge the following day. During that bond review, her bond was set at $50,000.00.
* Possession of Heroin
* Possession of Heroin with the Intent to Distribute
* Possession of Heroin with the Intent to Distribute within 1,000 feet of a school zone
* Possession of Oxycodone
* Possession of Oxycodone with the Intent to Distribute
* Possession of Oxycodone with the Intent to Distribute within 1,000 feet of a school zone
* Possession of Suboxone with the Intent to Distribute within 1,000 feet of a school zone
A Wicomico County District Court Judge revoked the bond on November 17, 2017, and Snee was arrested on a bench warrant at 3:45 pm and taken to jail where she was held without bond.
In spite of making a respectable salary as a high school teacher in Wicomico County as well as a flourishing alleged drug business, Snee was able to obtain the legal services of a free, taxpayer-provided public defender to be her mouthpiece in court
In spite of making a respectable salary as a high school teacher in Wicomico County as well as a flourishing alleged drug business, Snee was able to obtain the legal services of a free, taxpayer-provided public defender to be her mouthpiece in court. Snee has a preliminary hearing set in District Court of Wicomico County for Dec. 7, 2017.
Snee was charged with theft by Howard County Police Officer C. Dorsey in Howard County District Court on April 16, 2011. In a plea deal with the Howard County States Attorney on July 13, 2011, Snee entered a guilty plea. THE DEAL: Snee was given a verdict of Probation Before Judgement and fined $500 with $300 of the fine suspended and no jail time.
A domestic violence order was signed against Snee by a Judge on May 7, 2009, along with a peace order.
Teen reeking of pot fought deputy during arrest at Parkside High and got a good shot of taser love
SALISBURY, MD. – Wicomico Sheriff Lewis reports that on November 17, 2017, as the school day got underway at Parkside High, a deputy assigned to keep order in the school, initiated an investigation into the possession of CDS by a student. The investigation was prompted after this student walked through the school giving off a pungent odor of marijuana. During the ensuing investigation, this student began making what was perceived as furtive movements as he backed away while both grabbing into his waistband and inside his coat which caused concern that this student might be concealing a weapon. Instead of complying with instructions, this student continued to back away from the deputy which escalated to pulling away when the deputy attempted to stop him. The student was able to slip out of his coat at which point he began running through the hallway in an attempt to flee apprehension.
The deputy pursued the student as the student fled from the building out a rear door, ultimately catching the student in the rear parking lot. Upon catching the student, he struggled against the deputy’s attempts to detain him. During the apprehension, the deputy utilized his agency taser to assist in stopping the student. The deputy recovered a baggie that contained what was identified as marijuana from this student.
The student was transported for medical attention and was subsequently evaluated and released before being released to a parent. A request for formal charges is being sent to the Department of Juvenile Services for adjudication.
