CRISFIELD, Md.– Crisfield police say a man arrested over the weekend on firearms, assault and related charges was a known gang member in the area.

According to police, on Saturday at 3:43 p.m., officers responded to the area of the Crisfield Housing Authority for reports of an armed person. When officers arrived, authorities said someone who matched the description of a suspect known to police as a local member of the Bloods gang was inside of a green Mercury Marquis parked near 140 Somers Cove Apartment.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
