*On May 26, 2011 Chief Kelvin Sewell, then Lt Kelvin Sewell along with Pocomoke City Police Officer Savage traveled to Crisfield MD to assist the Crisfield Police Department with an ongoing drug problem they were experiencing in the area of the Somers Cove housing area.
Chief Sewell and Officer Savage were able to purchase crack cocaine from a known drug dealer who was identified as Andre Fisher of Crisfield, MD. The purchase was made at the residence of Mr. Fisher who resided at the Somers Cove housing in Crisfield, MD.
On March 6, 2012 (today)Chief Sewell, Officer Savage, Lieutenant of Crisfield Police Department, and other Crisfield Officers appeared in Circuit Court in Princess Anne MD for trial. After the testimony of each Officer was given, the Defendant Andre Fisher was found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Mr. Fisher then became highly upset and began using profanity towards the Officers and then spit in the direction of the Judge. Mr. Fisher was wrestled to the floor by the Somerset County Sheriff’s Deputies and then carried out of the courtroom.
(Fisher will serve 10 years of 20 years in prison. Ten years of the 20 were suspended.)

On 9/4/2011 at approximately 7:27 pm, the Crisfield Police Department received certain information that an individual working for Sherwood Amusement Rides was selling drugs while operating one of the rides at the Crab Derby on Marina grounds. The Crisfield Police Department sent two CPD undercover officers into the grounds and observed the individual dealing prescription oxycodone. One of the undercover officers approached the suspect and bought oxycodone from him, the undercover left the area. A decision was made to contact the management of the Amusement rides and move in an arrest the suspect because it appeared that he was under the influence of drugs himself. The suspect was arrested without incident and management took over the operation of the ride.

Crisfield police say that shortly after 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 22, officers responded to a reported assault at the Somers Cove Apartments (Housing Authority) for a vicious assault. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a victim bleeding profusely from the head and face.
An ambulance, was dispatched to the location of 64 Somers Cove Apartments and transported the victim to McCready Hospital for treatment. Due to the extent of his injuries, he was later transferred to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. The victim is currently listed in stable condition for treatment of fractures to the facial region, broken nose and stab and lacerations wounds to the head.
Police say an investigation revealed that the victim, a white male, was walking in front of 64 Somers Cove apartments when he was approached by two black males who allegedly told him, "We don't like white people or crackers." According to investigators, for no other apparent reason the suspects started beating the victim in the head and face, and then then began stabbing and cutting him in the head with a knife. Authorities say that during the attack, one of the suspects stated, "We got this white mother-expletive." Both suspects then fled the area before police arrived on the scene, according to investigators.
Police say an investigation led to the identity of both suspects. In the early morning hours of Sunday, Jan. 23, officers arrested one of the suspects, identified as 47-year-old William Jones,(photo left) of no fixed address. He was charged with attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and hate crime. He is being held in the Somerset County Detention Center in lieu of $200,000 bond.
Police arrested the second suspect, 45-year-old Michael Eugene Tilghman (photo right) of 42 Somers Cove Apartments, Monday afternoon.
According to state records, both suspects are convicted felons.
A friend of the victim, Michele Simao says she saw the attack unfold, but doesn't think it was a hate crime.
"It was just a verbal confrontation at first, it wasn't like anyone went out looking for him specifically," Simao said. "Words were exchanged and one thing led to another."

Workers who were tearing a porch off a house on Pine Street found human bones lying in a ditch underneath it.
"They called me all panicky," said Noah Bradshaw, the city inspector, who went over to the house, then quickly called in the Crisfield Police Department.
After the scene was processed by police, the skeletal remains were recovered and another portion of the area was dug to recover additional bones.
The remains consisted only of various leg bones and joints. No other parts of the body, such as a skull, were found at the site, police said.
The State Medical Examiner's Office identified the bones as human remains, and will take them to their Baltimore office for further analysis.
The house where the skeletal remains were recovered is 100 years old and has been in the same family for a long time, Bradshaw said. The owner, Sarah Wise, lives out of state and the house is currently vacant.
Bradshaw said the bones could pre-date the house.
"They're petrified, they're so old." he said.
Although there is an open missing persons case in Crisfield, police said they so far do not suspect the remains to be those of Gordon Nelson Sr., who disappeared in October 2007.
"We don't know anything yet," Lt. Stanley Harmon said. "We're just trying to get the bones identified."
Police consider Nelson's disappearance to be suspicious.
Last year, Crisfield police excavated a property on Canal Drive outside city limits where Nelson once lived. Although a trained cadaver dog hit on a spot in the yard, no remains were found.
Nelson, who was living inside city limits at the time of his disappearance, was last seen at the local Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
