CENTREVILLE, Md. – A combined law enforcement investigation has led to the arrests of six people alleged to be part of a significant drug trafficking organization on the upper Eastern Shore.
We’re told the investigation was initiated by the Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force and involved information concerning the operation of a drug trafficking organization believed to be distributing large amounts of opioid pills and cocaine in the county. The Maryland State Police Heroin Investigative Unit assisted with the investigation during the summer and fall of 2020, as well as multiple law enforcement agencies.

The homes searched were located in Millington and Chestertown, and two of the search warrants were served at the same address.
Detectives reportedly recovered suspected powder cocaine, oxycodone, adderall and alprazolam pills, as well as suboxone strips. Also found was an assault pistol, shotgun, two hands, and more than $17,000 in cash believed to be connected to the drug operation. Police took custody of four vehicles.
