The Public Eye said...

that's a lot of crack... good grief I'd like to know how many pounds of that stuff they got.

Great work, I applaud all the agencies that pulled this off. It's amazing that they got it done without the usual "leak" from within.

Thank you to all agencies and personnel involved in cleaning up some of this mess! Please continue as needed.

I just looked up a few of these names on case search-all have extensive arrest records.
The one being held without bond, Tamar Cutler was charged with first degree murder back in 2006. The charge was "nolle prosequi."

Does anyone remember this? It must have occured in Worcester Co since the charges were filed here.

I found this article from the Washington Times about Cutler.


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.

That's not all, get this....some of these guys listed, for example Mr. Cane, have been working with a group (Empowering young men) who held a public meeting at the Cypress Park in Pocomoke recently. The flyers, which one was taken to the police dept., were all stapled on trees downtown recently. Wonder what the meeting was really about.

Where do you get this bs? They used an informant who was facing misdemeanor theft charges...no real police work. 43 ppl and less than an ounce of crack between them all. Lmao
