FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
St. Mary’s County Detectives, being assisted by the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, began an investigation into Teresa Lynn Glaze aka “Teresa Hall” (Age 44 of Leonardtown) and her possible involvement with diverting “oxycodone”. Suspect Glaze began working for a doctor in the Prince Frederick area and was terminated. During her time at the doctor’s office she wrote approximately 72 fraudulent prescriptions using a stolen blank prescription pad. She wrote prescriptions in the name of friends and family members, who passed the prescriptions before returning the “oxycodone” tablets to her for sale. In all, detectives discovered the pills obtained were “Oxycodone” 4,104 tablets, “Xanax”- 150 tablets and “Adderall”-180 tablets for a value on the street of more than $35,000. Suspect Glaze’s brother, James Joseph Hall (Age 37 of Leonardtown) was indicted as he obtained 1,632 “oxycodone” tablets as part of this fraud scheme. Additional arrests are anticipated as the investigation is ongoing.

Lawrence Edward Keister (Age 48) is an inmate in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. He was court ordered to be released to attend a doctor’s appointment in Leonardtown and detectives had received information he would be receiving “Suboxone” to smuggle back into the jail. Suspect Keister met with a female, obtained the “Suboxone” which was inside of a balloon and swallowed it. Detectives immediately approached the suspect and confirmed he had ingested the controlled substance. A medical review confirmed the balloon inside his stomach and it was recovered. It was found to be “Suboxone” and he was charged with “Possession with Intent to Distribute” and “Possession of Contraband with the intent to Deliver inside a Correctional Facility”.
Detectives worked closely with Sheriff’s Office Correctional Staff throughout this investigation. The female and other inmate were identified during the investigation and charges are pending against both after a review with State’s Attorney Richard D. Fritz.
