The Talbot County Drug Task Force and Homeland Security Investigations began a covert investigation in Spring 2022 that culminated in the indictment of eight men in connection with a drug-trafficking operation in Talbot County. Maryland State Police joined more than two dozen local, state and federal law-enforcement agencies in dismantling the sale and distribution of illegal drugs, including cocaine and heroin, throughout Talbot, Dorchester, Caroline and Queen Anne’s counties.
The accused kingpin, Sherman Nathaniel Greene Jr., 42, of Cambridge, is charged with importing large quantities of illegal drugs, which co-conspirators assisted Greene in selling and distributing. Police served multiple search and seizure warrants on residences and vehicles in Talbot, Dorchester, Caroline and Queen Anne’s counties. The warrants yielded more than 1,300 grams of suspected cocaine, along with suspected heroin/fentanyl, two rifles and seven vehicles that were used to transport the drugs.
The Talbot County Drug Task Force is a cooperative enforcement effort between the Maryland State Police, Talbot County Sheriff’s Office, Easton Police Department, St. Michaels Police Department, Oxford Police Department, Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Talbot County State’s Attorney’s Office. The suspects have all been released on bail except for Greene, who is being held at the Dorchester County Detention Center without bond.
