Noted in a social media post from the Howard County Police Department on February 4, 2021:

In a traffic stop yesterday afternoon in Elkridge, HCPD officers recovered 58 vials of cocaine and packaging materials from the vehicle, and a .357 Derringer handgun from the driver, John Devault, 18, of Baltimore. Devault was charged with armed drug trafficking and his two passengers were also arrested for drug violations. This is a good example of the potential dangers that come with every traffic stop, and the great work our officers are doing every day.
