Crisfield Police Raid Homes in Search of Suspected Drug Dealers

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md.- Crisfield police on Thursday announced the arrests of several suspected drug dealers, including Pierre Whittington, 32, of Crisifeld. WBOC was on Market Street when Crisfield police hauled Whittington off in handcuffs.

We asked Crisfield police about the investigation. Police said a press conference concerning the massive drug investigation will be held this week.

Some onlookers said the sight of the arrest is all too familiar.

"But the problem is people who are not drug addicts or users are afraid to step up," said Hooks. He added ,"just because you take 25 people off of the street, does not mean 25 more people won't take their place."

Some folks in the area believe drugs are obviously a problem, but how to deal with it-- is the issue.

"I'm fed up with it, but what can you do," said Daniel Phillip Howard, of Crisfield. "They're still going to find some way to bring it in town."

Others pray that police can rid the area of the drug dealers.

"Naturally I hate for the drugs to be anywhere, but there's nothing I can do about it except pray," said Sam James, of Crisfield.
