Second Phase Of Fugitive Warrant Effort Leads To 107 Arrests In Wicomico, Dorchester Counties
(SALISBURY, MD) – Maryland State Police, in partnership with allied law enforcement agencies in Wicomico and Dorchester counties, arrested more than 100 people as part of a continued effort to reduce the amount of active fugitive warrants in the lower Eastern Shore.
As part of “Operation: On The Lam[b],” the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit and Apprehension Team, along with allied federal and local law enforcement agencies in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, planned, coordinated and implemented a plan to locate and apprehend suspects with open arrest warrants issued through the Maryland State Police, Salisbury Police Department, Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, Delmar Police Department, Fruitland Police Department, Cambridge Police Department, Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office and Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.
The Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office, Dorchester County State’s Attorney’s Office, Delaware State Police, Maryland Division of Corrections, Delaware Division of Corrections, Homeland Security Investigations and the Eastern Shore Information Center [ESIC] also partnered in this operation
This initiative, which yielded 107 arrests and took place on April 9 and 11, was a follow up to “Operation: Hide and Seek,” which was conducted on Feb. 20 and led to 41 arrests. That operation focused on gathering information and identifying criminal gang members and suspects of open criminal investigations in Wicomico County. Among those arrested in that initial investigation were 11 people who had suspected ties to organized gangs and 13 of whom had out-of-state connections.
