900 grams of cocaine seized in Calvert

The Calvert County Sheriff's Office Drug Enforcement Unit seized 900 grams of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $90,000, and arrested one adult male at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Prince Frederick.

"It appears we got the drugs before it was distributed to other locations," said Lt. Steve Jones, commander of the Criminal Investigations Bureau, who could not provide the name of the arrested man at this time.

The unit also seized $14,000 and a Chevy SUV after a four-month investigation of a Lusby-based drug ring that supplied Southern Maryland. Charges are pending for other involved individuals, police said.

Six search warrants were served by the Calvert Investigative Team, Calvert's Special Operations Team, Emergency Service Teams from St. Mary's and Charles counties, Maryland State Police and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

The silence from the racists and yahoos is DEAFENING!

Had this crime ocurred in "PG County" - there would be a long list of hate messages to the tune of "PG County" being a "hellhole" inhabited by "savages".

When it happens in a majority white burg, not a peep.

ceefer,
How do you know the culprit is caucasian? Based upon this taking place in Calvert County?
That's just as "racist" as those who'd make the opposite assumption based upon it happening in PG.
In reality, either is simply playing the odds. Since PG has a signifcantly higher minority population it isn't much of a leap to assume a suspect in black or latino.
Conversely, since this took place in Calvert County that has a higher caucasian population, you're probably right.
Neither makes one a racist...it's called being a realist.
So spare us all your race baiting.

ceefer - where is race mentioned in this article. The article is incomplete - doesn't even provide names from which we could jump to conclusions. For instance, Urban Dictionary definition of ceefer:
"By day, a basement dwelling cat. Ornery and grouchy, Ceefers prefer to sleep most of the day in a box labeled "summer clothes" instead of their bed. When not receiving adequate petting or cuddles, Ceefers will deposit a small fecal mound upon the threshold of doors or on comforters. Other ways of displaying resentment include sneezing mucous onto your face, or depositing vomit into the hood of your favorite christmas sweater. Ceefers typically sleep on average, 23.5 hours of the day, the remainder of the time they can be found in their most natural habitat, the homo sapiens "bed" for cleaning, sleeping or rubbing their butts on the comforter. Preferred activity of choice: cuddles, and headbutts.
"Awe man, Ceefer just barfed into my sweater"

"Thanks for pooing in my sleeping area Ceefies"

ceefer66: I wouldn't run my mouth too quickly. I'm sure we'll get more information on this and my bet is once again you'll be wrong in your thoughts.

Whether or not this person is Caucasian; the fact remains that when the criminal is black there are loud cries that are eerily racist! And when the person is white, race is never mentioned by these posters! America will never be post-racial, that's just a fact!
