Vice/Narcotics Arrests

St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics detectives responded to a pharmacy in St. Mary’s County, for a reported fraudulent prescription. Information was then forwarded to surrounding agencies and the suspect was identified as Gina Marie Krouse-Boswell aka Megan Baker.

On May 3, 2016, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics detectives were contacted by Narcotics detectives from Calvert County Sheriff’s Office regarding the suspect Krouse-Boswell attempting to pass a fraudulent prescription in their jurisdiction. 

Shortly after being contacted, a St. Mary’s County Vice/Narcotics detective was conducting an unrelated investigation at a pharmacy when they observed suspect Krouse-Boswell arrive and enter a Charlotte Hall pharmacy, pass a counterfeit prescription for “Oxycodone” and exit the establishment waiting for the prescription to be dispensed. 

Suspect Krouse-Boswell was arrested. Recovered from her person and vehicle were numerous items of evidence. Nineteen (19) additional fraudulent prescriptions were recovered, some of which were signed and made under various names. The phone number on the prescription was called and it prompted the suspect’s cell phone to ring. A prescription bottle containing several “Oxycodone” tablets was located as well and it was revealed it was also obtained through this fraud scheme. 

Detectives will continue the investigation within our jurisdiction and assist the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office in their investigations as well. Additional charges are pending a review with State’s Attorney Richard D. Fritz. 

Inquiries should be directed to Captain Daniel D. Alioto
