On April 2, 2018 Deputy Mohler conducted a traffic stop on Dorsey Road near the back entrance of Calvert High School. He made contact with the occupants and detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage as well as the faint odor of raw marijuana emitting from the vehicle. The three occupants were asked to exit the vehicle. Located in an outside pocket of a backpack found in the back seat was a small chunk of a green substance of suspected marijuana.
Deputy Mohler brought the backpack out of the vehicle, and without asking any questions, the backseat passenger, Michael Wayne Smith (47), advised the backpack was his. Located in Smith’s wallet was an 8mg Suboxone strip, which he stated he did not have a prescription for. Smith was placed under arrest and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center.
While on the way to the Detention Center, Smith advised he had a gram of marijuana in his underwear. He was charged with CDS: Possession-Not Marijuana.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
