Alleged rockfish poacher charged with witness tampering

A Maryland fisherman being investigated for poaching has been accused of witness tampering. Although he has yet to be charged with any federal crimes, the 41-year-old man has been the subject of a continuing grand jury investigation. The Maryland Natural Resources Secretary has called the man's alleged rockfish poaching operation a crime against the citizens of Maryland and their natural resources.

Police took a man suspected of robbing a Maryland convenience store into custody. According to the police, the man robbed a Royal Farms store in Salisbury.

The overwhelming majority of Maryland residents own a cell phone but not all are aware that data stored on their phone may be used against them in a criminal case. Whether data on cell phones, including phone call records, photos and texts, can be used in court has become a major issue in a number of criminal defense cases. While the Obama administration maintains that probable cause enables law enforcement to search anything on a suspected individual, many believe that it violates people's Fourth Amendment rights.
