CRISFIELD, Md.– Police say they have arrested the alleged head of the "Florida Boyz," an ongoing drug operation in Crisfield.

Crisfield police said that on Wednesday, officers from the department, with the assistance of the Somerset County Sheriff's Office, arrested 32-year-old Eddie Steward Neal, of Sackertown Road in Crisfield, when they raided a home at 3145 Sackertown Road. Neal has been charged with multiple counts of distribution of CDS on a sealed grand jury indictment.
