SALISBURY, MD. – Wicomico Sheriff Mike Lewis reports the death of convicted armed robber and ex-con Tyran Deangelo Drummond, who crashed into a tree on Johnson Road in Salisbury, Md. On April 4, 2016.
Sheriff Lewis reports that deputies responded to a call for a wreck at about 10:45 pm and found the driver dead at the scene. There were no other occupants of the vehicle. Any witness to the crash is asked to call 410-548-4891.
Toxicology reports generally take several weeks to reveal any blood alcohol content in the deceased’s system, as he had a record of driving while impaired.
On June 6, 2015, Drummond was arrested for DUI and negligent driving in a careless and imprudent manner while endangering life, property, and person, by Maryland State Trooper M. Johnson as he traveled on Civic Ave., at Rt. 50 in Salisbury. Wicomico County States Attorney Matthew Maciarello agreed to a plea deal on Feb. 22, 2016, to Probation Before Judgment with a fine of $342.50 and no time in jail.
Drummond was charged with speeding at 90 mph in a 56 mph zone in I-97 in a 2014 Honda by Maryland State Trooper Henry on Nov. 28, 2014. In Anne Arundel County District Court on Jan. 12, 2015 in a plea deal with Anne Arundel County States Attorney Wes Adams, Drummond entered a guilty plea and was fined $290.00.
Drummond was charged with armed robbery, assault on a law enforcement officer along with 11 other criminal counts in 2007 and in a plea deal he entered a plea of guilty on March 13, 2008. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 10 years suspended and the Wicomico County Circuit Court Judge recommended boot camp. An effort to have the sentenced modified on June 15, 2011, was denied by the Circuit Court Judge.
On June 15, 2015, a bench warrant was issued for violation of the terms of probation. “Back on your Block Bail Bonds posted a $20,000 bond and Drummond was released. Another hearing for violation of probation was set for March 16, 2016, and was canceled.
Drummond’s friends report that he had been volunteering with youth sports teams since getting out of prison and on his Facebook page, Drummond claimed he was studying courses online.

WESM posted this news article about the armed robbery in which Drummond entered a guilty plea:
SALISBURY, MD – Salisbury Police say they’ve apprehended two suspects in the armed robbery of a pizza deliveryman Monday night.
According to police, the robbery took place as the Domino’s delivery man was delivering a pizza order on Liberty Street. Two subjects approached the deliveryman, with one of the subjects brandishing a shotgun. After they had taken the cash, the deliveryman was ordered to leave, and the shotgun was fired one time though no one was injured.
Officers were later able to locate two subjects with matching descriptions. While attempting to detain the suspects, one of them became combative – assaulting an officer until placed inside of the police vehicle. Further investigation recovered shotgun ammunition on the suspects, and a shotgun that had been reported stolen.
The suspects are identified as 20-year-old Tyran Deangelo Drummond and 20-year-old Janile Najah Coulbourn, both of Salisbury.
