Maryland State Police Beat: St. Mary’s Druggies Nabbed When Driver Violated Traffic Rules
Warrant Service / Possession of Crack Cocaine, Codeine & Alprazolam:
LUSBY, MD. – Police officers are trained to spot wise guys and criminal wanna-bees by their habits, their tough guy profile and the general aura of badness that they give off when confronted with a law officer. For Maryland State Trooper First Class McCombs who stopped a 2017 Chevy Impala, tag # 8DD4955 for traffic violations on Maryland Route 4 at Mill Bridge Road in Lusby on Sept. 27, 2018, at 9:02 am “several criminal indicators” were present, according to Sgt. Bruce Bevard of Prince Frederick Barrack.
Unlucky for the carload of miscreants out for a morning journey, Tfc. McCombs is a K-9 officer and his pal is K-9 Benelli, who was more than happy to perform a scan of the miscreant-laden jalopy. Earning a dog biscuit for his hard work, the K-9 scan proved positive, report police.
Andrew P. Nelson, 23, of 44025 Sandy Bottom Road, Hollywood, Md., was arrested for an outstanding warrant from St. Mary’s County Sheriff’ Department for a theft charge after he failed to appear in District Court. Nelson additionally was charged with theft for a Porter Cable cordless drill located in the vehicle by Trooper S. Matthews and charged with theft under $1,500. Nelson is also a record-setting Outlaw Pirate Poacher of the Chesapeake Bay as he is permanently prohibited from engaging in the commercial harvest of wild oysters in Maryland. And his Oyster Authorization/ Entitlement is revoked effective August 4, 2016. Taxpayers will be thrilled to learn that they will be paying for his free attorney.
- In spite of being banned from oystering, Nelson was cited by Maryland Natural Resources Police Officer Grice on Feb. 2, 2018, with oystering in violation of his ban and on May 16, 2018, he was found guilty in District Court for Charles County, Md. Andrew Phillip Nelson, 22, of Hollywood, was charged under commission regulations with commercial oystering without a license and hand tonging without a license. Nelson was seen hand tonging oysters on the Pascahanna Oyster Bar by officers on surveillance. Nelson was barred from purchasing a Potomac River license in 2018 after he failed to file catch reports. However, he is permitted to measure and assist in unloading a catch.
- Nelson is permanently banned from commercially harvesting oysters in Maryland because of previous offenses, but the state and the Potomac River Fisheries Commission does not have reciprocity for suspensions and revocations.
- On April 28, 2017, Andrew Phillip Nelson was sentenced to six months in jail for the charge of escape, which doesn’t actually mean he fashioned a rope out of bedsheets and slipped out a jail cell window. Instead, the official charge of escape applies to a defendant failing to return to jail after being allowed work release.
Casey N. Faulds, 22, of Mechanicsville was arrested for possession alprazolam for which she did not have a prescription and drug paraphernalia. Faulds will be given a free attorney provided by the hapless taxpayers of Maryland for a court date set for Dec. 13, 2018, in Calvert County District Court.
- Faulds was charged with attempted burglary and trespass with both charges put on the Stet Docket in a plea deal with Calvert County States Attorney Laura Martin on Aug. 15, 2018.
- A theft charge placed by Maryland Trooper Opirhory against Faulds was put on the Stet Docket on Feb. 1, 2018.
- Faulds was charged with theft under $10,000 and in a plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz, Faulds pleaded guilty on May 1, 2018, and was sentenced to 545 days in jail with all but 30 days of the sentenced suspended.
- Charged with auto theft and removal of property, Faulds cooked up another plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz. In return for a guilty plea to the charges, Faulds was given Probation Before Judgement, no jail time and no fine.
- In 2016, Patricia Ann Faulds filed a custody action in St. Mary’s Circuit Court against Casey Nicole Faulds.
Jessica H. Reed, 23, of 36694 Manor Road, Chaptico, Md., was arrested by TFC McCombs for possession of crack cocaine, codeine, and drug paraphernalia. Reed also received a traffic citation and a SERO for a cracked windshield and failing to have a driver’s permit in her possession. Reed was released on unsecured bond and taxpayers will jump for joy to know that Reed won’t have to use her funds designated for the purchase of illegal drugs to pay for an attorney, as taxpayers will be providing her a free attorney.
- Reed entered a guilty plea to possession of drugs and paraphernalia in a plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz on March 6, 2018. THE DEAL: No fine and 18 months of supervised probation.
- Charges of theft against Reed were put on the Stet Docket in St. Mary’s District Court on Oct. 20, 2018.
