WICOMICO COUNTY, Md.- Maryland State Police, along with allied local and federal law enforcement agencies, said they partnered on Friday to target criminal activity and criminal organizations operating within Wicomico and Dorchester counties.

The initiative came under the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network, a criminal justice strategy, coordinated at the local, state, and federal levels targeting gangs, drugs, firearms and human trafficking. MCIN is particularly focused on those criminal networks that are impacting multiple jurisdictions and accomplishes this by sharing information across borders.

Police said that in Wicomico County, enforcement efforts were based on intelligence relating to illegal drug use and sales, firearm violations and crimes of violence. In Dorchester County, the gathering of information included identifying criminal gang members and suspects of open criminal investigations and fugitive apprehension/warrant services.

Information obtained during the Dorchester County operation led to intelligence regarding a case previously investigated by the Dorchester County Narcotics Task Force. This information was used to serve a search and seizure warrant on a targeted home and as a direct result led to the seizure of a handgun, cocaine, fentanyl, heroin and marijuana and the arrest of a suspect. The suspect, identified as Tayron Rynell Daniel Mims, 32, of Cambridge, Md., is charged with felony drug possession and
distribution charges. He was taken to the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office for processing.

In Wicomico County,
the allied agencies included the Maryland State Police Easton Barrack, Cambridge Police Department, Hurlock Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations.
