‘I don’t know anything,’ suspect says as search turns up heroin, cocaine, pot, pills, guns and $168,000

A routine traffic stop was the thread that started to unravel the drug dealing operation of a 35-year-old West Palm Beach man, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Timothy Frederick Maloney is facing numerous drug and weapons charges after detectives found large amounts of cocaine, marijuana, heroin, prescription pills, two handguns, and over $168,000 in cash in his home, storage unit, and pickup truck, records show.

It started to fall apart when two people were pulled over in February. They both admitted to buying drugs from Maloney. A confidential informant told detectives the same thing in March, the arrest report stated.

Investigators monitored Maloney’s home in the 1500 block of 43rd Street. They checked his trash on April 18 and 25 and found plastic baggies with cocaine residue and other drug paraphernalia that had been discarded, the report said.
