For some people, what they have done in the past has a way of coming back to them at a time when they least expect it. In some cases, the past can hinder them from being able to move forward with their future as they have it planned. For one Maryland man, an extensive criminal history seems to have played a part in a recent court hearing. That court hearing has resulted in him being held without bail.
Three Maryland residents were charged with a variety of drug and weapons-related offenses after law enforcement agencies worked together in a search and seizure in late December that reportedly netted $9,000 in cash, firearms and $50,000 worth of drugs. The Washington County Narcotics Task Force reported that the material seized included suspected heroin weighing about 188 grams as well as suspected meth weighing about 95 grams. The three individuals taken into custody included a 22-year-old woman and two men, 26 and 28. One of the men was held without bond; the other man and the woman were held on a bond of $50,000.
On Aug. 20, investigators served a search warrant on a residence in the 6200 block of Panther Court in Waldorf and allegedly discovered suspected black tar heroin, various prescription medications, more than 1,000 in cash and $42,000 worth of marijuana. In connection with the drug bust, a Waldorf couple is being accused of drug crimes for the second time this year. A man and a woman at the residence were taken into custody and charged with possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Eight Maryland men have been taken into custody under suspicion of drug charges. The arrests occurred after a search by the Dorchester County narcotics task force of a Cambridge apartment at 400 Cemetery Ave. The narcotics task force initiated the search with a search and seizure warrant and the search ultimately lead to eight people being taken into police custody. The police reportedly found a weapon and assorted drugs at the property which led to multiple drug charges.
Three Maryland men have been taken into police custody for allegedly selling counterfeit merchandise. A raid conducted by the Delaware State Police reportedly discovered more than 1,200 counterfeit items that the police state were being sold by the three men. The items included counterfeit items from brands such as Coach, Gucci and Louis Vutton. There were also replica sports jerseys, cash and a small amount of marijuana reportedly found at the property by the police. The marijuana has led to a drug charge for the possession of marijuana.
