Deliveryman arrested in Maryland Mayor Cheye Calvo drug raid case

Police in Maryland have arrested the deliveryman in the SWAT team radio on a Maryland mayor’s house. Police broke down the door of the mayor’s home, shot his dogs, and held the mayor and his wife as ‘persons of interest’ after a 32lb box of pot was intercepted by drug sniffing dogs in transit. Police had no reason to suspect the mayor or his wife (who the package was addressed to) but went ahead with a ‘no knock’ search and seizure (despite not having a warrant for a no knock search).

Half a dozen deliveries were found to be carrying contraband, to a tune of about $3.6 million dollars. Despite this police have yet to exonerate the mayor, calling him ‘likely an innocent bystander’ but not entirely sure.
