Gerald S. L. Benton, 31, was charged with four counts of possession of a drug not marijuana, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal possession of a firearm.  He was released on $15,000 unsecured bond. 

Jeremy S. Benton, 35, was charged with three counts of possession of a drug not marijuana, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal possession of a firearm.  He was released on $15,000 unsecured bond.   

In addition to the four arrests, police recovered guns and drugs during the operation.  The guns included a Ruger 9mm pistol and a Benelli 12-guage shotgun.  Police recovered small quantities of marijuana, percocet, tramadol, heroin, buprenorphine, “molly,” methadone, and suboxone.   

Police involved in the initiative included the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit, Firearms Enforcement Unit, and Easton Barrack.  Allied law enforcement officers included the Caroline County Sheriff's Office, the Caroline County Narcotics Task Force, and the Federalsburg Police Department.
