God Bless Our State Police! Today I learned from a local West Ocean City store manager that a guy from New York pulled into a local parking lot and the trooper asked for the guy's drivers license. He had a New York license and tags. He told the driver he was writing him a ticket with a fine for $5,000.00 as New York is under quarantine AND Maryland wasn't allowing anyone from out of state to quarantine for 14 days. The guy told the Officer he owned a home here and had every right to be here. The Officer then checked to see if the guy actually owned a home here and learned he lied to the Officer. The Officer then allegedly wrote him another fine for $1,500.00 for lying to an Officer and the man could also face a year in jail.
It's about time Maryland started putting its foot down. Keep up the good work Law Enforcement!
I can tell you, this event happened in the very same parking lot in which a Food Lion Employee tested positive for Coronavirus. Way to go OUTSIDERS! Go back to your state and hunker down like you've been told.
