Calvert Emergency Communications advised the driver, Carlton Eugene Baldwin (35, pictured top left) had an active warrant through the Harford County Sheriff’s Office. Baldwin was removed from the vehicle and detained.
A search of the vehicle revealed a glass smoking pipe with burnt residue, two cut straws with white powder residue and a small vial with white powder residue. Baldwin was placed under arrest and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center where he was charged with CDS: Possession of Paraphernalia and served his warrant.
On August 16, 2019, Deputy R. Shrawder responded to the Tiki Bar in Solomons for the report of a male arguing with a female outside of the business. While attempting to locate the subjects, Deputy Shrawder observed a fight in the middle of the street involving the male subject he was looking for, Sheldon Taylor Shaw (26, pictured top right), with the female standing close by.
Shaw refused to place his hands behind his back and continued to resist as he was being handcuffed. He was completely uncooperative while receiving medical treatment and refused to get into the patrol vehicle. Shaw was placed in the jail van and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center where he was charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting/Interfering with Arrest, Failure to Obey Reasonable/Lawful Order, Trespassing on Private Property and Second Degree Assault.
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
