On November 14, 2016 the Talbot County Narcotics Task Force served a court authorized search and seizure warrant on the person of Anthony Kevon Todd, DOB: 7/10/1987 of 29352 Fourth Street Easton, Maryland and on his vehicle, a 2007 Cadillac Sedan in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Easton, Maryland. Located in the vehicle was a small quantity of suspected heroin. A passenger in the vehicle was identified as John Durgan West, DOB: 11/29/75 of 10527 Knife Box Road, Denton, Maryland. Investigators located a small amount of suspected heroin near Mr. West.
A short time later a court authorized search and seizure warrant was executed at the residence of Anthony Todd (listed above).
A detailed search of the residence revealed evidence of a long term, Heroin distribution operation including the following item(s):
Approximately two pounds (915.5 grams) of Heroin, 1 Oxycodone Hydrochloride 15 mg pill, a digital scale, packaging materials, tools used to process the Heroin, a drug ledger, multiple cellular phones and $411.00 U.S. Currency. The Heroin located consisted of one large pressed brick, twelve approximately 1 ounce baggies of Heroin, and several additional smaller baggies of heroin broken down for street level sales. In addition, a 2007 red Cadillac Sedan, a 2002 Honda Accord along with items of personal property related to the sale of illegal narcotics, were seized pending forfeiture. The estimated street value of the Heroin in Talbot County, MD is between $140,000.00 and $150,000.00. TODD and MURPHY were charged with numerous drug related charges including Possession CDS Large mount, Importing CDS into the State, Distribution of CDS, PWID CDS, Possession CDS, Several counts of Possession of Paraphernalia, and Maintaining a Common Nuisance. WEST was charged with Possession of CDS and Possession of Paraphernalia.

the St. Michaels Police Department, the Oxford Police Department, the Easton Police Department,

Who knew these small towns had paid police departments? Why do they need to have PD's when you have a sheriff's office and the State police in the County.

I'm glad they put the DNR Cop to work. They need to utilize them more often. That is a large department that is underworked.

Even more is the Office of the State Fire Marshal. They should use the fire marshal's more often. They have police powers and graduated from the police academy and they won't even pull over a speeding vehicle. What a waste of man power. Think about it, how many fires are there to investigate? Hardly NONE!
