EASTON, MD. Maryland State Police report that troopers of the Easton Barrack arrested two Eastern Shore men for possession with intent to distribute marijuana and mushrooms.
Troopers were conducting a traffic enforcement initiative at Chapel Road and Black Dog Alley, Easton, Talbot County, MD. They stopped a black 2001 BMW being operated by Dylan Quade Simmons, 27, of 1047 Baccharis Drive, Salisbury, Md., as well as from Cordova, Md.; and the front passenger was identified as Maghnum Travis Aaron Hastings, 27, of 8391 Tuckahoe Road, Denton, Md.

Both Simmons and Hastings were taken before a Talbot County District Court Commissioner.
Simmons was arrested by Trooper John Griffin for felony distribution of drugs and other drug charges and was released on his own Personal Recognizance. Taxpayers will be excited to learn that they will be springing for the free lawyer provided this alleged drug dealer.
Hastings was charged with two felony drug distribution counts as well as other drug charges and was held on $5000 secured bond and transported to Talbot County Jail. Hastings obtained bail money of $5,000 and was released from jail on Sept. 7, 2018. Hastings, while alleged to be involved in the sale of drugs won’t have to use any of his funds to pay for a lawyer as the taxpayers are going to shell out the money to pay for a free one from the public defender’s office.
