Heroin: From Shore to Shore, Maryland’s Black Plague of Death

DENTON, MD. — Heroin, the home wrecker, the heart-stopper, the black ice. For some, the final door to hell.

Maryland officials are scrambling statewide to find a way to reduce heroin use and the crescendo of overdose deaths linked to heroin and to that of a new/old synthetic drug called Molly, which killed two young people at a traveling dope show held last weekend at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md.

One particularly dangerous version of the toxic drug is a fentanyl-laced heroin.

Heroin was once the province of junkies in the inner city — desperate and degraded, shooting up in alleys and tenements of major cities.

Reihl Brothers Might Have Better Luck with Robbing Banks Instead of Poaching Oysters

EASTON, MD. — The Maryland Natural Resources Police report that last Friday they charged two watermen with violating the State’s oyster laws in Talbot County.

Benjamin Leonard Reihl, 26, of Chestertown was charged with eight counts of possession of undersized oysters, marking the fifth time he had been caught oyster poaching this season. Adam Vincent Reihl, 21, of Church Hill, was charged with six counts of possession of undersized oysters.

“Our Natural Resources Police are a critical part of our efforts to protect the Chesapeake,” said Governor Martin O’Malley. “Poaching oysters hampers our work to protect the health of the Bay and hurts Maryland citizens and hard-working watermen who live, work and play in our waters.”

Officers stopped a truck on U.S. 50 west of the Choptank River just before 6 p.m. After inspecting and sorting through the vehicle’s cargo, officers determined that 14 bushels of oysters were undersized. The two men were arrested on warrants for unrelated violations.
