EASTON, Md. - A man is in custody, after authorities say he surrendered to Maryland State Police, in Easton. The man was apparently wanted on weapons and drug charges stemming from an incident, where he allegedly threatened to shoot family members.
Maryland State Police says during the second week in November, troopers with the Easton Barrack responded to the 10000 block of Hailem School Road, for a domestic disturbance involving the use of firearms and other threats of violence, in Easton. During the investigation, troopers say 42-year-old Tracey Sherwood, of Easton, was in possession of several firearms and threatened to shoot family members. Authorities learned that Sherwood, a convicted felon, was not allowed to have any firearms or ammunition due to prior criminal convictions.
Sherwood reportedly fled the scene before MSP arrived and could not be located.
According to the report, a search warrant for Sherwood's home, was executed by the MSP S.T.A.T.E. Team (Special Tactics Assault Team Element), the Criminal Enforcement Division, the Talbot and Caroline County Drug Task Force and the Talbot County Sheriff's Office. During the search, authorities reportedly seized a loaded .22 caliber revolver, ammunition and cocaine.
On Friday, the 42-year-old apparently turned himself in to MSP troopers. Sherwood is charged with possessing a firearm when prohibited, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of cocaine.
