Teen caught driving with drugs, empty beer can

On April 2, 2018 Deputy Gott observed a black Ford pick-up truck with its lights off parked in the roadway on River View Drive(Lusby, MD). He made contact with the driver and the front seat passenger, later identified as Jessica Ann Dennis (19). The driver told Deputy Gott he did not have any illegal drugs on her and he could search her if he wanted to. A search of the driver revealed no contraband. During a search of Jessica’s person, Deputy Gott located a plastic bag with suspected crack cocaine.

He then picked up an empty beer can that fell out when she got out of the truck and noticed it had been modified as a smoking device and contained suspected crack cocaine residue.

Dennis was placed under arrest and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center where she was charged with CDS: Possession-Not Marijuana and CDS: Possession of Paraphernalia.

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

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
