During the past several months, Travis (NMN) Richardson (age 28 of Leonardtown, MD) was identified as a distributor of cocaine and detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for his home and person. Detectives, assisted by members of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office Vice/Narcotics Support Team, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Team, and K-9 deputies executed the search warrant which revealed numerous items of evidence. The evidence indicated suspect Richardson was using the residence to manufacture and package crack cocaine and the recovered items included digital scales, plastic bags, a quantity of cocaine, a .38 caliber handgun and "cutting agents."
A second suspect, identified as Michelle Shavon Mobley (age 23 of Leonardtown) was also located inside the residence and was found to be in possession of marijuana which was prepared and packaged for distribution. Detectives seized Mobley's 2008 Saturn Vue pending forfeiture proceedings.
Richardson is a convicted felon with a long criminal history and prohibited from possessing a regulated firearm. Additional charges are expected pending a review by State's Attorney Richard Fritz.
Inquiries should be directed to Captain Daniel D. Alioto, Commander of Vice/Narcotics, at 301-475-4200 x1918.
