WICOMICO SHERIFF REPORTS FENTANYL DISTRIBUTION ARRESTS
QUANTICO, MD – Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis reports that the Community Action Team rounded up two alleged drug dealers.
Possession of a Large Amount of Fentanyl
Incident: Possession of a Large Amount of Fentanyl
Date of Incident: July 28, 2022
Location: 25000 Block of Nanticoke Road, Quantico, Maryland
1. Treyvon R’Shon Walston (24 years of age)
2. Arrin Michelle Spence (21 years of age)
Members of the Wicomico County Sheriffs Office Community Action Team (CAT) conducted an investigation into Treyvon R’Shon Walston distributing controlled dangerous substances, including fentanyl in Wicomico County. A search and seizure warrant was obtained for Walston’s residence located on the 25000 block of Nanticoke Road in Quantico, MD. On July 28, 2022, the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Response Team (SERT) executed the search and seizure warrant on the 25000 block of Nanticoke Road, Quantico, MD. Treyvon Walston, Arrin Michelle Spence, and a small baby were located inside the residence.
It was discovered during the search warrant execution that two (2) bags containing purple powder and one (1) digital scale were discarded out the back door of the residence. The investigation determined that the purple powder substance was fentanyl. A complete search of the residence revealed powder cocaine, crack cocaine, suboxone strips, packaging material, and other items indicative of CDS distribution. In total, 96.85 grams of fentanyl, 14.94 grams of powder cocaine, .50 grams of crack cocaine, and the 10 suboxone strips were seized from the residence. In the State of Maryland, any subject that possesses 5 grams or more of Fentanyl can be charged with possession of a large amount, which has enhanced penalties.
It is clear that Walston is involved in the distribution of heroin/fentanyl and cocaine. Walston and Spence were both placed under arrest and transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center. Both subjects are held without bond. The Delmar Police Department assisted with the investigation.
All subjects mentioned in this press release are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

WOODBRIDGE MAN WITH TWO KILOS OF FENTANYL PILLS CAPTURED AFTER CRASH FLEEING COPS
A Woodbridge, Va. man faces multiple charges following a pursuit on Interstate 95 early Sunday morning, June 26, 2022. Alpha A. Kamara, 24, is being held in the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center on charges of one felony count of eluding police, one felony count of hit-and-run, unauthorized use of a vehicle, one felony count of possession of a Schedule I/II drug with the intent to distribute, one count of obstructing justice by resisting arrest and driving without a valid license.
At 2:56 a.m. Sunday, a Virginia State Police trooper attempted to stop a Dodge Charger traveling south on I-95 near Exit 163 for Lorton. The traffic stop was for the license plate being reported stolen out of Maryland. The Dodge refused to stop and instead sped away from the trooper at a high rate of speed. A pursuit was initiated. Approximately two minutes later, the Dodge ran off the right side of the interstate near Occoquan Road, struck the guardrail, and crashed into the ditch. The driver, Kamara, ran from the scene on foot. An adult male passenger remained at the scene.
Kamara was apprehended a short distance from the vehicle crash. A search of the vehicle resulted in approximately 2 kilograms of Fentanyl pills being seized by state police. The incident remains under investigation.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WAVY) – A man that was taken into custody after a 12 hour standoff near Old Dominion University in 2017 was sentenced in court on Friday.
Alpha Amin Kamara, also known as “Juuce”, was sentenced to five years in prison for charges of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. He was one of the 28 individuals arrested and charged as part of “Operation Tin Panda.”
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) began “Operation Tin Panda” in the Spring of 2017 to target individuals selling drugs while armed and other firearm-related criminal acts.
Kamara was a wanted fugitive and taken into custody by U.S. Marshals after a 12-hour standoff on W. 43rd Street and Killam Avenue in Norfolk in December 2017. They found him hiding in the attic of the building.
FOX 5 REPORTS JUDGE RELEASED KAMARA ON PERSONAL RECOGNIZANCE IN SPITE OF BEING ON FEDERAL RELEASE WHEN DISTRIBUTING FENTANYL
Investigators said Kamara admitted that he had just gotten off of house arrest in a prior case. According to documents, he was found guilty in a 2017 federal drug trafficking case where he was identified as a Bloods gang member, and he was still on supervised release.
But despite that, Kamara was freed on his own recognizance the next day.
“I have to say I was surprised,” said Kamara’s attorney Robert Jenkins. “Surprised because he was on federal supervised release, also given the reported circumstances surrounding his arrest, the amount of suspected narcotics seized.”
In a statement, Becky Campbell, spokesperson for the Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, said: “We have always believed that this individual represented a danger to the public and should be held. We were therefore dismayed that he was released prior to the point in the proceedings at which our office can be involved and pleased to learn from our partners in federal law enforcement, with whom we were coordinating throughout, that they were taking action to get him off the streets. We will pursue our charges in this case vigorously.”
When asked for clarification on why the office could not be involved, she said prosecutors are unable to attend arraignments.
“In early 2020 we began staffing the arraignment docket with a prosecutor – which was a change in process for this courthouse and prior administrations. After several days of us attempting to participate in in-custody arraignments, Judge Mutnick informed our office that the GDC judges had spoken and felt that because the defendant is without counsel at that point (as it is the morning after arrest), they believed that a prosecutor appearing and objecting to bond would be considered an ex parte communication and that they would no longer allow us to appear and make an objection to bond at arraignment.”
FOX 5 reached out to the court and Judge Minor for information on Kamara’s release, but was told: “The Judicial Canons prevent the court from making any comment on this or any other case.”
Jenkins said the judge should have known about his client’s background.
“I think it’s very unlikely the state court judge was unaware or let’s say didn’t have access to the information,” he said.
Federal agents re-arrested Kamara a day after his release, according to documents. He’s now being held on federal charges in addition to the county case where he’s facing charges of eluding police, hit-and-run, possession of drugs with the intent to distribute, obstructing justice by resisting arrest and driving without a valid license.
