(Crisfield, MD) – Troopers from the Princess Anne Barrack investigate an assault, which led to two search warrants, the recovery of guns/drugs and the arrests of three Somerset County men.
Those charged are identified as Savon Douglas, 21, Hans Wegt II, 23, and Aaron Sterling, 27, all of the Somers Cove apartment complex in Crisfield, Maryland. All were charged with firearms charges, CDS possession marijuana, CDS possession with intent to distribute, robbery, armed robbery and two counts of first degree assault. All were transported to the Somerset County Court Commissioner’s Office and held on $250,000 bond at the Somerset County Detention Center.
The victim is a 31-year-old man of Marion, Maryland. The victim transported himself to McCready Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be blunt force trauma injuries to his head.
At 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, troopers from the Princess Anne Barrack received a 9-1-1 call from McCready Hospital reporting an assault that recently occurred. The caller reported the victim had been struck in the head with a gun and entered the emergency room seeking medical attention. Upon arrival, troopers made contact with the victim and it was determined he had been assaulted, injured and robbed.
The preliminary Maryland State Police investigation by troopers from the Princess Anne Barrack and the Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Lower Shore Division determined the 31-year-old victim had been with his friend Douglas earlier that day. Douglas was under the impression that the victim had a large sum of money and plotted with Wegt II and Sterling to rob the victim.
Search warrants were obtained by Maryland State Police and served at the suspects’ residence by Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Lower Shore Division, state troopers from the Princess Anne Barrack, Somerset County Narcotics Task Force, deputies from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department and officers from the Crisfield Police Department.
Service of the search warrants resulted in the recovery of four guns and individually packaged marijuana. In addition concealed knives, digital scales and drug paraphernalia were recovered.
