Maryland Mayor Involved In Drug Raid
Posted by mattymoe on August 8, 2008
It’s like a horrible dream came to life for the mayor of a small Maryland town and his family.
Last week, Cheye Calvo, mayor of Berwyn Heights, and his family found themselves unknowingly tangled in a marijuana smuggling ring — their home was stormed by plain clothed Prince George’s County police who proceeded to shoot the family’s beloved Labradors, Payton and Chase, dead.
No evidence of illegal activity was found at the mayor’s home by police.
The mayor said the warrant that police say justifies their actions did not bear his name, did not authorize no-knock entry and figures it might have been politically motivated. He said he did not see the warrant until three days after the raid.
This week, Prince George’s police arrested two men for orchestrating a plot to deliver marijuana to the addresses of unsuspecting recipients — among them, Calvo’s wife, Trinity Tomsic.
Police Chief Melvin C. High nor Sheriff Michael A. Jackson have apologized to the mayor, his wife or her mother, Georgia Porter, for the raid that traumatized the family and killed their black Labrador retrievers.
This is CRAZY!
The FBI is now investigating what looks to us like a total eff up by county officers.
Who can we trust these days?
