RAGING REDNECK: ACCUSED DRUG DEALER NICK OSBORNE CORRALED FOLLOWING SHOOTING & NINJA PAINT ATTACK
REVENGE FOR ARMED ROBBERY
BY GANG HE MET TO SELL DRUGS
NEWS AND COMMENTARY
St. Mary’s County is awash with drugs and punks with guns. This story moves from one affluent neighborhood to another with Esperanza Farms appearing to have only been the locale of a drug deal that quickly turned to a violent armed robbery when a man who lives in Wildewood was robbed and clobbered by a gang of three alleged felons who now await trial. The “victim” – a drug dealer – now joins his attackers in the slammer after he is alleged to be dealing in stolen guns and selling weed – along with charges of aiming gunfire at an occupied waterfront home in Compton.
COMPTON, MD. – Just a little squabble between an alleged homie drug dealer and his predator customers might be what prompted this scene out of West Baltimore in quiet and rural Compton in St. Mary’s County – or it may be the investigation by police will reveal that the victims were innocent and as pure as the driven snow. Or the vicious attack with guns blasting could have been in retaliation. Everything is on the table with this lead-filled event.
St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron reports that a shoot ‘em up right up there with the classic drive-by shootings of the ghettos or even of the Italian mobs left bullet holes smattering a pricey waterfront home that was occupied by what police called “numerous occupants.” The truth may be that they weren’t innocent.
Teo-Tre Richard Gaston, 18, of 28880 Trent Hall Road, Mechanicsville, Md., his sister, Neisa Jordan Gaston, of Chaptico and Jerel Theodore Gaines, 19, of Great Mills, Md., were charged last month with allegedly robbing drug dealer Nicholas Osborne at Esperanza Beach located at the end of Green Holly Road in Esperanza where the group met to exchange money for weed. SCENE OF DRUG DEAL AND ROBBERY at Esperanza Farms
Osborne, armed as all successful Mafioso’s are when dealing drugs, told police he was beaten, robbed of his handgun, which was used to give him some good whacks. Published reports state that Court charging documents alleged that Gaines admitted the robbery and like all small-time hoods quickly ratted out his compatriots.
Police say that on February 20, 2018, deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in the 30000 block of Mary Helen Way, a small development of waterfront townhouses just off of Joe Hazel Road in Compton.
Sheriff Cameron stated the response was for a report of shots fired into a residence.
Upon arrival, deputies discerned there were numerous occupants in the residence, and one victim had been directly fired at, however the victim was uninjured. A description of the suspect to include clothing worn was disseminated to responding deputies. It was also discovered the victim’s vehicle had been intentionally damaged with spray paint and other corrosive materials.
Responding officers located Nicholas Bruce Osborne, 18, of 23317 Dianthus Way, in the Wildwood neighborhood of California, Md., on foot in the area, after locating his abandoned vehicle.
Police say that Osborne was wearing clothing which matched the description disseminated, and Osborne also had the same color spray paint used to damage the victim’s car on his person.
Interviews by deputies with witnesses in the area revealed Osborne was in a neighboring yard, following the shooting, reports Sheriff Cameron.
Subsequently, a search of the area revealed a handgun concealed in the same vicinity. Osborne was found to be in possession of a significant quantity of a controlled dangerous substance and other prohibited firearms related items.
Osborne was robbed and beaten when he was meeting his customers to sell drugs. His customers are now indicted with that armed robbery.
Maryland State Police Detective Hagan of the Criminal Investigation Division with possession of a firearm by a minor, unlawful sale of a firearm, and possession of a stolen firearm.
Osborne was placed under arrest by St. Mary’s Deputy Holdsworth and transported to the St. Mary’s County Jail and charged with the following criminal violations:
Assault 1st Degree (3counts)
CDS Distribution with a Firearm
Possession with Intent to Distribute Narcotics
Handgun on Person
Malicious Destruction of Property (2 Counts)
Court records show that Osborne was denied bail and will be happy to have the taxpayers dig into their pockets to pay for his lawyer as his alleged drug sales proceeds can’t possibly be exposed to police as those alleged funds might be seized. Of course, the public defender might not give him a robust defense. Oh, the perils of allegedly doing business in stolen guns and drugs.
In 2008, Bruce Osborne paid $408,000 for the home in which Nicholas Osborne resides in the affluent Wildwood neighborhood. Taxpayers in that neighborhood should be upset that they have to pay for the legal defense of the accused gunman and drug dealer who lives in their neighborhood; however, with Osborne in jail, it might be a safer community.
Jerel Theodore Gaines, of 45463 Foxtail Place, Great Mills, Md., was indicted on the same charges as Gaston, on Jan. 8, 2018. On Nov. 22, 2017, Gaines was found guilty of assault on Feb. 20, 2018, in District Court.
