UPDATE -- Operation Blue Christmas

Operation Blue Christmas

12/28/2015 -- additonal photos added (italicized)



Over the past several months, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics Division has utilized various investigative tactics to include undercover drug buys while identifying numerous drug dealers throughout St. Mary’s County. Through these investigations, the Vice/Narcotics Division has obtained numerous criminal charges and have also obtained search and seizure warrants for various residences and vehicles of identified drug dealers.  The purpose of this operation is to dismantle drug networks by locating and arresting wanted individuals and executing search and seizure warrants upon the bodies, vehicles, and residences of drug distributors. Assisting with this operation were members of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics Division, with the assistance of the Emergency Services Team, K9, Patrol Division, Narcotics Support Team Members, officers from the DEA HIDTA Task Force (DEA Group 48) and the Annapolis Office of the FBI.

Search and seizure warrants were obtained and executed on a residence in the 46000 block of Pleasant Dr. in Lexington Park. The target of the warrant was Norman Kenneth Dickerson (Age 55). Suspect Dickerson was located and arrested on five open Grand Jury indictments for “Distribution of Cocaine” and “Conspiring to Distribute Cocaine”. Additional suspects were arrested when a search revealed misdemeanor amounts of controlled substances. Lori Maria Dickerson (Age 49) was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and a related smoking device as well as being served a criminal citation for possession of marijuana under 10 grams. Suspect Mary Theresa Dickerson (Age 57) was arrested for possession of cocaine and a related smoking device. Donald Anthony Somerville (Age 58) was charged on a criminal summons for possession of marijuana under 10 grams.  A quantity of cocaine was recovered from the home as well.

Rashaud Martese Nelson (Age 26) was identified as a distributor of cocaine. Several undercover purchases were made by detectives, and Suspect Nelson was subsequently indicted and an arrest warrant was issued. A search and seizure warrant was obtained and executed in the 46000 block of Yorktown Rd. in Lexington Park, which is where Suspect Nelson resides. Suspect Nelson was taken into custody without incident, and the search revealed cocaine and money related to the drug activity that was seized for forfeiture proceedings.

Javon Lyzel Dickens (Age 24 of Piney Point, MD) was indicted for “Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine” which occurred when he was out on bond for felony cocaine possession charges. Suspect Dickens has since pled guilty in the earlier cases and now will face the additional charges. He is currently incarcerated on the original drug offenses. Additional, Courtney Ellen Lacey (Age 21 of California, MD) was indicted and subsequently charged with “Possession of Cocaine with the Intent to Distribute Cocaine.” These charges stem from her criminal activity with the co-defendant, her boyfriend, Javon Lyzel Dickens.

Detectives have been working the last several months on a multi-jurisdictional investigation involving counterfeit prescriptions to obtain Promethazine-Codeine. Alexis Santos aka Londell Andre Malone (Age 24 of Washington, D.C) was arrested after passing a counterfeit prescription for Promethazine-Codeine Syrup. Suspect Santos fled the scene on foot before eventually being apprehended. A search of Suspect Stantos’ vehicle revealed 20 Oxycodone 5mg pills (street value $100), 4 Oxycodone 10mg pills (street value $40.00), 22 individually wrapped pieces of suspected crack cocaine (street value nearly $1,000), 2 Promethazine-Codeine Syrup bottles and a quantity of suspected marijuana (Street value $50.00). Also, in the vehicle was a list of approximately 17 names and personal information which were being utilized to fraudulently obtain Promethazine-Codeine. Suspect Santos originally provided false information regarding his identity and was positively identified by his fingerprints. Once his identity was confirmed, it was discovered he had additional open warrants for prescription fraud crimes. Search warrants executed on Suspect Santos’ phones revealed his involvement in the distribution of controlled dangerous substances. Further, Santos was linked to an additional group of individuals who were also fraudulently obtaining Promethazine-Codeine Syrup with false documents. Pharmacy documents show the groups of suspects were involved in fraudulently obtaining numerous bottles of Promethazine-Codeine Syrup throughout the State of Maryland, State of Virginia, State of New York and State of New Jersey.



Alexis Santos aka Londell Andre Malone

St. Mary’s County detectives continue to work with the other jurisdictions to assist in their investigations.  A St. Mary’s County Grand Jury indicted Alexis Santos for “Possession of Cocaine with the Intent to Distribute”, “Possession of Oxycodone with the Intent to Distribute”, “Conspiracy to Pass a False Prescription with the Intent to Distribute Promethazine-Codeine” and “Possession of Promethazine-Codeine with the Intent to Distribute”. After his release from his original arrest, Suspect Santos evaded apprehension until he was taken into custody in Prince George’s County by the United State Marshal Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. Additional arrests are expected against Suspect Santos and other members of this criminal network in several jurisdictions along the east coast.

Trevone Damone Butler aka “Tre” (Age 25 of Lexington Park) was identified as a distributor of cocaine. Several undercover purchases of cocaine were made which led to subsequent indictments for “Distribution of Cocaine”. Suspect Butler was out on bail for numerous armed robberies he was charged with recently. He was arrested and is currently being housed in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center under a “No Bond” status.
