Worcester County Sheriff Press Release

            SNOW HILL –  In what has become the gold standard in covert and overt investigations, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with the Ocean City Police Narcotics Division released the results of a nearly eight month long operation designed to combat the growing drug epidemic. 

            Speaking jointly for all of the agencies which participated, Sheriff Reggie Mason made the following statements, “For months the Criminal Enforcement Team in cooperation with the Ocean City Police Department’s Narcotics Division, the Delaware State Police, Homeland Security and the Office of the State’s Attorney have been working hand in hand to uncover, investigate and stop the growing drug problem  that has not only been a problem for our community – but for neighborhoods around the country” 

            “Appropriately named Operation Street Sweeper, this eight month long operation was our response to what is absolutely an escalating problem. Understanding that nearly every user deals at some point to support their habit, a ground up approach to enforcement was likely to net intelligence that would ultimately lead us to many of their suppliers.”

            “As a result of these street level investigations into the drug users of our community, we were able to jointly make or obtain 61 arrests or arrest warrants. These investigations led to the authoring and signing of multiple search warrants for residences, vehicles, persons, computers, social media accounts and cell phones.”

            “In addition to securing our streets from the dangers of opiate and serious drug abuse, these arrests have further prevented common nuisance crimes associated with drug use. Many of those arrested were observed committing thefts, engaging in prostitution or otherwise taking the safety of Worcester County from her citizens”.

            “Following on their incredible successes from 2012, 2014, 2015 and now 2016 – The Criminal Enforcement Team along with the Ocean City Narcotics Investigators have once again demonstrated their incredible propensity for large scale counter drug operations. They continue to live up to their motto of – detect, disrupt and destroy.”

            State’s Attorney for Worcester County Beau Oglesby also commented, “Today we find ourselves reminded not just of the problems we face – but reminded of how fortunate we are to live in Worcester County where the men and women of our allied agencies work day and night to keeps our communities safe, our children cared for and our homes guarded. This operation is neither the first nor the last of its kind. For as long as there are people suffering – you can count on the my team of prosecutors and staff to answer the calls of our community”.

            Chief Buzzuro of the Ocean City Police Department added, “The success of this effort is due in large part to the extraordinary partnership we have with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, the office of States Attorney Beau Oglesby and all other agencies involved. To effectively tackle the heroin problems we face in Worcester County, law enforcement must work together across jurisdictional boundaries. It is because of teamwork that these 41 individuals are off our streets and out of our neighborhoods.”
