Drug suspects are charged

Judge unseals indictments

Friday, March 20, 2009

A St. Mary's judge ordered Thursday that a Lexington Park man remain jailed in lieu of $10,000 cash bond on a pair of indictments charging him with the distribution of cocaine.

Grand jurors allege that Shaun Darnell Dyson, 27, distributed the drug last August in Lexington Park and again in November in California.

Noting the "back-to-back indictments" that prosecutors obtained against the suspect, St. Mary's Circuit Judge C. Clarke Raley told him, "They're really going after you."

Woman charged with keeping drug house in Lexington Park

Earlier this week, Patricia Kay Johnson, 43, of Lexington Park was jailed in lieu of $5,000 bond on an indictment alleging she maintained in 2007 and 2008 her residence in the Colony Square neighborhood for the distribution of cocaine.

Capt. Daniel Alioto of the St. Mary's narcotics detectives filed an initial district court charges application last year alleging that a "drug nexus" was included in a series of crimes that law officers investigated at the residence and an August 2007 raid found marijuana, packaged cocaine and a microwave oven with cocaine residue indicating it was used for a "cooking" and manufacturing process.

Marijuana suspect, visitor with child arrested in Great Mills

In addition, John Anthony Supensky, 48, of Great Mills was released Wednesday on personal recognizance after a police raid at his home earlier that day led to charges of the possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and counterfeit U.S. currency.

Several counterfeit $20 bills were in the residence, charging papers state, and narcotics detectives were still at the home when 28-year-old Gudlaug Hanna Lytle of California called and asked if she could come over and trade some marijuana for pain pills.

Lytle arrived a short time later with her 6-month-old son in her van, charging papers state, and she was arrested after she went in the house and gave a plainclothes officer a small amount of marijuana to carry out the transaction.

Lytle later was released on personal recognizance on charges of the distribution of marijuana, the possession of marijuana and a family-law violation of allowing the child to be confined in a motor vehicle while it was out of her sight and she was not in the vehicle.
