On July 22 at 2:33 a.m., officers initiated a traffic stop in the 2900 block of Crain Highway in Waldorf.

During the stop, a passenger in the car jumped out, grabbed a handgun that was in his waistband, and threw it before fleeing on foot. He was apprehended without further incident. A polymer 9mm ghost gun– meaning the gun did not have a serial number–was recovered and phencyclidine / PCP.

Officers also learned the man, Malik Rashaad Dickey, 26, of District Heights, was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a disqualifying criminal conviction.

On July 25, a judge ordered Dickey to be released from the Charles County Detention Center as long as he met the electronic monitoring conditions. Officer Dunn is investigating.
