Maryland drug investigation leads to 17 indictments

A sweeping narcotics investigation in Maryland has resulted in 17 indictments and the seizure of drugs with a street value of between $20,000 and $30,000 according to an announcement from the Talbot County Drug Task Force. The investigation focused on an Easton man who is alleged to have run a drug ring that distributed significant quantities of amphetamines, cocaine and opioid pills in bars and restaurants in Oxford, St. Michaels and Easton.

The man is said to have used a large number of associates to sell the drugs. Police say that some of these individuals worked at several area bars and night clubs. One of the individuals indicted is a Cambridge man who authorities believe supplied the drug gang with cocaine. The investigation entered its final phase when warrants were obtained to search 26 properties in Dorchester, Caroline and Talbot Counties.

According to police reports, these searches led to the seizure of drugs including crack and powder cocaine, Adderall and oxycodone pills and anabolic steroids. Police also claim to have discovered drug paraphernalia and substances used in drug manufacturing that suggest the properties were part of a large narcotics operation. Officers also impounded seven luxury vehicles worth an estimated $200,000 and confiscated about $50,000 in cash.

Experienced criminal defense attorneys may suggest acting quickly when their clients face serious drug charges in cases involving multiple defendants. Prosecutors are often under great pressure to win high-profile cases, and they may be willing to make generous plea offers in return for evidence that could help them to prevail in court. However, this rarely lasts for long, and their offers may become far less attractive once they have gathered the information they need from others.
