ARREST FOR COCAINE DISTRIBUTION: Robert Sylvester Hill, age 45 of Lexington Park, was arrested after being indicted by detectives. Several indictments were handed down by the St. Mary's County Grand Jury for multiple counts of possession of cocaine, felony distribution of cocaine, and conspiring with Kimberly Taylor (previously arrested) to traffic cocaine.
INDICTMENT FOR COCAINE DISTRIBUTION: Detectives received information that Jermaine Dwayn Davis, age 27 of Lexington Park, was selling cocaine in a particular neighborhood in Lexington Park. Detectives made undercover purchases of cocaine from Davis and he was subsequently indicted for felony distribution of cocaine and arrested. An additional warrant was also served on Davis for leaving the scene of an accident and fleeing and eluding police. That was from an unrelated incident. He was originally held without bond; however his current status is unknown.
