DIRTBAG ROUNDUP: Door to door crackhead makes panhandling home delivery calls
LUSBY, MD. — On May 25, 2017, at approximately 12:15 pm, Deputy G. Gott responded to the area of Holly Drive and Calvert Boulevard, in Lusby, for the report of a suspicious person.

After he was asked to leave the property, he requested a ride by Deputy Gott who agreed but stated he would need to be searched first. Found on his person was a plastic bag containing crack cocaine. He was transported to the Detention Center and arrested for Possession of Crack Cocaine.

In a plea deal with Calvert States Attorney Laura Martin on May 22, 2015, McDermott entered a guilty plea to driving without a permit and was given ten days in jail with all ten days suspended and a verdict of Probation Without Judgement. Of course, a taxpayer provided attorney was free to represent him.

THE DEAL: no fine and 120 days in jail with 55 days suspended and credit given for time served of 65 days. Four other charges were dropped as part of the deal. The taxpayers provided an attorney for McDermott once again.
- A drug charge by Maryland State Trooper Wiesemann in Calvert District Court resulted in a plea deal on June 13, 2013, with a sentence of 30 days in jail. Taxpayers paid for his lawyer.
- Charged with DUI while driving on Village Center Parkway in Lusby, Md., on April 11, 2011, at 2:22 pm by Calvert Sheriff’s Deputy R. Weems, McDermott struck yet another plea deal with Calvert States Attorney Martin. THE DEAL: no fine and 60 days in jail with 45 days suspended.
- Charged with theft in Calvert District Court, McDermott played let’s make a deal with States Attorney Martin on Sept. 13, 2010. THE DEAL: he entered a guilty plea and was given no fine and 45 days in jail with all the jail time suspended.
- Pleading guilty to a drug possession charge on Sept. 30, 2009, McDermott scored another victory in Calvert District Court. THE DEAL: no fine and six months in jail with all the jail time suspended. Leslie Florestano Peek was his free attorney courtesy of the taxpayers.

El Salvadoran Luis Javier Rivera charged with dealing drugs in Bayside Park
CHESAPEAKE BEACH, MD. – Calvert Sheriff Mike Evans reports that a Central American national showed up in town with plenty of drugs but claimed he didn’t speak English, begging the question, how did he communicate with the local druggies of Chesapeake Beach when dealing his wares?
Or, was money the international language of drugs?
On May 23, 2017, at approximately 7:30 pm, Deputy E. Yates, Deputy D. Jacobs and Deputy D. Gatton responded to the Bayfront Park located on Bayside Road, in Chesapeake Beach, for the report of a firearms complaint.
The complainant advised that he heard two gunshots coming from inside of the gated area of the park prior to calling 911. As deputies arrived an additional two shots were heard from inside the Bayfront Park, which was closed at dusk. The Deputies observed two people in the Park and after identifying themselves, the two individuals fled on foot. A foot chase ensued while establishing a perimeter around the area in hopes to locate the individuals.
Around 8:30 pm one of the individuals, identified through an El Salvador passport as Luis Javier Rivera, 30, of 325 Stafford Road, Barstow, Md., (the address of the Calvert County jail since the woods by the park doesn’t have an address) emerged from the woods. Rivera refused to identify himself, claiming he did not speak English. While searching through his wallet for proper identification, a paper fold containing a brown sticky substance (amphetamines) was discovered.
A further search of Rivera’s wallet revealed numerous compartments that were hiding controlled dangerous substances: two (2) plastic baggies containing a crystalized powder, (methamphetamines) weighing 17.5 and 16 grams each; five (5) plastic folds, each weighing between 3-4 grams, contained a brown powder (amphetamine); a separate plastic fold, weighing 2 grams, containing a brown sticky substance (amphetamine).
Rivera was transported to the Detention Center for prisoner processing. During the processing, Rivera refused to continue speaking in English and refused to provide critical information for his processing. He received charges of Obstruction of Justice, Reckless Endangerment, Trespass-Posted Property, Possession with Intent to Distribute (Amphetamines) and Possession of nonnarcotic drugs (Methamphetamine and Amphetamines).
While Rivera gets to keep all the profits of his alleged drug dealing the taxpayers provide an interpreter who understands Spanish. HOLA HOMBRE!

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray my pills are mine to keep
BARSTOW, MD. — Some folks keep their money buried in the backyard as they don’t trust the crooks that run the banks. Some crooks don’t trust leaving their drugs with their thieving families when they have to go to jail, so they take their drugs to jail with them and keep their stash safe by hiding it under the mattress.

CHESAPEAKE BEACH, MD. — Just when you might have thought the security guard was supposed to guard the Rod n Reel against being burglarized the real purpose might be to keep employees from robbing the place blind by walking out with the inventory.
