On May 4, 2022, detectives from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics Division conducted an operation with assistance from the Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit and members of the Patrol Division.
A vehicle stop was conducted in the 22400 block of Chancellors Run Road in California, and the operator of the vehicle was identified as William Scott Jordan, age 50, of Great Mills.
