Beau Oglesby- Getting The Job Done In Worcester County

Beau Oglesby and the best law enforcement organizations nearby did Worcester County a wonderful thing a few days ago by loading up some of the biggest druggies in the county and hauling their asses off to jail!  I'm just glad I wasn't one of the parents impacted by this with a child that had ever purchased drugs from one of these scumbags.  I would have asked for a turn to speak before the judge on the day Beau Oglesby met with the judge to discuss bail for these low living creatures.

I'd like to laugh in the face of the creep that told the judge he couldn't stay in jail because he needed his medication.  What?  Medication?  You care about YOUR miserable health (now that your ass is in a bind)  but NOT the health of someones child?  How dare you even speak that crap!  Bail?  NOPE!  Not for any of them!  Just cram them into the same cell and let them fight it out!

Not fair?  Not nice?  Inhumane?  Is what they do to our families fair and just?  Is it fair for these people to sell drugs in a school zone?  Is what they have done time after time humane?

Fortunately, for some,  I don't make the laws. 

I guess the one big question is why does it ever have to get to the point that we have to bring out the 'big guns' in order to  get these people off the street?  And why can't we keep them off the street?  And what can people do to erase drugs from the communities?

Unfortunately there will always be drugs.  But shouldn't the smaller local  police agencies be doing their part?

Keep up the good work Mr. Oglesby!  There is plenty to be done and I have no doubt that you will get to all of it very soon.

Aug. 5, 2011) Minaster Fate Nixon Wright, 55, of Pocomoke, told Judge Thomas C. Groton during a bond review hearing on Monday that he had never been convicted of a crime.


Wright, one of 36 people arrested over the weekend as part of a massive drug distribution investigation, evidently forgot that this was not exactly correct.


State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby told Groton that Wright had been convicted in 1974 of forgery, in 1965 of theft, in 1987 of malicious destruction of property, in 1987 of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and in 2004 of resisting arrest. He had also been found guilty of violation of probation.


Wright’s arrest over the weekend was for drug offenses on June 27 and July 14. His charges included selling marijuana within 1,000 feet from a school zone. The drug transactions, Oglesby said, were from Wright’s property, which is adjacent to Pocomoke Middle School.


Wright’s bond had been set at $75,000, but Wright wanted it to be lowered.

“That is not fair,” he said. “I’m a diabetic. I need my medicine.”


Groton was not inclined to lower the bond.

“Of all the cases I’ve seen, I believe this one may be too low,” he said.


Groton kept Wright’s bond at $75,000. He spent much of the morning listening to the charges of people picked up as part of the massive arrests by members of the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team, composed of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, the Maryland State Police, the Ocean City Police Department and the Worcester County State’s Attorney’s Office. Numerous other agencies assisted and eight people are still being sought.


Warrants for the 44 suspects, ages 19 to 55, were issued after a six-month investigation into drug dealing, primarily in the southern end of the county.


Suspect Tamar Gilbert Cutler, 27, of Pocomoke, was one of several people arrested in June 2010 as part of then- State’s Attorney Joel Todd’s initiative, Take Pride in Berlin, to rid Berlin of drug dealers. He was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute it and distribution of cocaine.


Those charges were placed on the stet, or inactive docket, but Oglesby told Groton that they will be removed. He is scheduled to be tried on those old charges Sept. 15. Two additional charges of possessing and distributing crack cocaine have also been removed from the stet docket and are scheduled for trial that day.


Oglesby said Cutler had a violent history and a considerable drug history. He asked for Cutler to be denied bond.


“I’d like to have bond re-established,” Cutler said to the judge.


“I don’t see why bond would not be issued for a drug case,” Groton said. “I believe you’re entitled to bond.”
He then set bond at $300,000.


Alleged drug dealer Dawn Rochelle Hudson, 52, of Snow Hill, told the judge she had a job pending in patient care. She was supposed to start work this week, but her employment depends on a background check. She was charged with distribution of crack cocaine and conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.
Groton left Hudson’s bond at $25,000.


One after another, more suspects appeared before the judge, Oglesby would relate their criminal histories and the judge would decide on their bond. Additional bond hearings were held Tuesday.

Among those arrested in the drug roundup were Joshua Handy Pitts, 43, of Snow Hill; John Donzell Ginn, 42, of Snow Hill; Clinton Waters, 38, of Salisbury; Honnis Webster Cane, 40, of Pocomoke and Broadus Lorenzo Mason, 32, of Pocomoke.

This investigation is continuing and the following individuals are still wanted by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office: Jeremy Lonnel Fitch and Gerry Marshall Laws of Pocomoke, Travis Antonio Bowen, Terrell Maurice Holley, Larry James Davis and Jonathon Purnell of Snow Hill, Torrance Demar Davis of Horntown, Va. and Kelvin Knock of New Church, Va.

I am literally rolling in the floor laughing about this one! Way to go, Judge Groton!

That's priceless!

Wonder what the fate was for the thug who's new job in patient care depended on her background check?

She was charged with distribution of crack cocaine and conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.

I have to wonder now if I know anyone in this facility that she may have gotten the job anyway.

But then, what do you do with an unemployed drug dealer??

"Oglesby said Cutler had a violent history and a considerable drug history. He asked for Cutler to be denied bond."

Here's an article about Cutler from The Washington Times, April 2006. Beau is absolutely correct. Cutler is violent and has already proved he is capable of killing someone.


POCOMOKE CITY

Man who played dead charged in killing

A man who was shot during an argument with friends played dead until the two other walked away, then shot them both, killing one, police said.

Tamar Cutler, 22, apparently was arguing with two men Monday when he was shot in the buttocks by Evrin Holden, 19, Pocomoke City Police Chief J.D. Ervin said.

Chief Ervin told the Salisbury Daily Times that Mr. Holden and Decellus Hardy, 19, then kicked Mr. Cutler to see whether he was alive.

When Mr. Cutler appeared lifeless, the two men walked away. As they did, Mr. Cutler apparently rose and shot both, the chief said. Mr. Holden was killed; Mr. Hardy was shot in the arm.

Chief Ervin said Mr. Cutler will be served a warrant for first-degree murder when he is able to appear in court.
