STEVENSVILLE, Md. - The Queen Anne's County Drug Task Force has made two arrests after they uncovered another marijuana farm on the upper shore, this one almost directly across the street from Kent Island High School in Stevensville.

This is the second place where marijuana was being grown that the task force announced this week.

Authorities said Wednesday, that members of the Queen Anne's County Drug Task Force, assisted by uniformed Deputies from the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office, members of the Kent County Narcotics Task Force and an investigator with Homeland Security Investigations, served a knock and announce search warrant at a home on Old Love Point Road on the morning of October 6.

Police said the primary suspect, 33-year-old Vincent Arcand, was detained on a traffic stop as he left for work. Investigators say they then returned to his home where they went in through an unlocked door. Another suspect, 32-year-old Samantha Sittle, was found sitting on a couch in a detached shed next to the home, police said.

Police said they searched the vehicles and the home and found hashish, which is a cannabis extract, and marijuana packaged for street level sales, $3591.00, 18 firearms, including an AK-47, and two suppressors. Police said inside the detached shed, they found an elaborate, commercially manufactured, hydroponic grow operation that has 22 marijuana plants, roughly three to four feet tall, actively growing on it. Police said they also found 1,893 grams of processed marijuana, 11.3 grams of hashish, digital scales, packaging materials with a heat sealer, numerous spare clips for the seized long guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. The marijuana and marijuana plants currently have a street value of approximately $50,000, according to police.

Arcand was charged with the manufacture of marijuana, the possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in a school zone, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, the possession of marijuana and the possession of paraphernalia, according to police. He received a $125,000 unsecured bond.

Sittle, who has a previous criminal history for possession of paraphernalia, was charged with the manufacture of marijuana, the possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in a school zone, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, the possession of marijuana and the possession of paraphernalia, police say. Sittle was released on a $100,000 bond.

  • 'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs. However, many of those pots can quickly become "ghost" pots, sinking to the bottom of the bay and taking millions of crabs with them. These ghost pots have been a problem in the bay for decades, diminishing the crab population, and potentially costing watermen millions of dollars.

    Historic Seaford Diner Torn Down

    One of the last remaining 1950's diner cars on Delmarva is now nothing but rubble.

    The Seaford Eagle Diner was ripped down Tuesday morning so the owners can re-build a new restaurant on site. Owner Serkan Darilmaz says the diner was in such bad shape that renovating it would've come at an astronomical cost.
