PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Authorities say six people- including three teens- are facing a variety of charges following a police crackdown on crime that occurred over the weekend in Princess Anne. 

On Saturday afternoon, the Maryland State Police Princess Anne Barrack, in partnership with the Somerset County Sheriff's Office and the Princess Anne Police Department, conducted an operation in the Greenwood neighborhood of Princess Anne. Police say the operation targeted individuals engaged in criminal activity such as sale of narcotics and weapons as well as individuals wanted on outstanding criminal warrants.

According to police, the operation was a result of increased calls for police services in and around the Greenwood neighborhood, as well as residential complainants of drug and weapon sales. 

The operation consisted of members from the three departments who saturated the area to crack down on crime. Police say the operation was a success in netting several suspects on drugs and weapons charges.

"The drug dealers are like candy in a candy machine you take one out and the other just slides down and takes it's place" said Greenwood resident, Raymond Waters. "It's an ongoing thing it's like a revolving door in and out."

On Tuesday, law enforcement mixed and mingled with residents in the area. The event was part of the "National Night OUt" crime-prevention program. Police hope that by the community coming together, some issues can be resolved in th eneighborhood.

"Are there going to be people that back fill the people that we've arrested this past weekend?" said Lt. Krah Plunkert, Maryland State Trooper. "I'm quite sure, but we are going to come back and we are going to keep pushing and pushing until we are able to deliver the neighborhood back to the Greenwood residents."

Police say that in addition to these arrests, several suspects were taken into custody on outstanding arrests warrants from Somerset and Wicomico County District and Circuit courts.

Arrested were:

  • Remar Waters, 20, of Princess Anne, was charged with possession of a handgun, possession of controlled dangerous substance (cocaine and marijuana), possession of paraphernalia, resisting arrest, possession of ammunition by a minor under 21-years-old and possession of ammunition.  He was committed to the Somerset County Detention Center.
  • Andre Schoolfield, 17, of Princess Anne, was charged as an adult with possession of a handgun, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (cocaine) and possession of paraphernalia.
  • Jamar Tenner, 18, of Crisfield, was charged with possession of a handgun.  He was committed to the Somerset County Detention Center.
  • Brandon Waters, 19, of Fruitland, was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute (cocaine), possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute within a school zone (cocaine), possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of paraphernalia. He was also wanted on outstanding charges in Wicomico County. He was committed to the Somerset County Detention Center.
  • Shynaka Turner, 29, of Princess Anne, was arrested on an outstanding warrant from Somerset County. She was committed to the Somerset County Detention Center.
  • Liddell Ward, 40, of Crisfield, was arrested on an outstanding Somerset County Circuit Court warrant. He was committed to the Somerset County Detention Center.

Police say Saturday's sting operation was the first wave of many which will be conducted throughout Somerset County over the next several months.
