On February 1, 2013 members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Team (SOT) and the Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) conducted a search warrant at Ball Road, in St. Leonard. The probable cause for the search warrant was based on Tommy Richardson, 40 of Brandywine, and his wife Mary Richardson, 57 of St. Leonard both selling prescription pills to undercover police officers.

A short time later one of the targets of the investigation Tommy Richardson was seen leaving the residence in the same red Ford Crown Victoria.

    Notice the children in the back of the Toyota and mommy sitting there wearing her pajamas. Bringing your kids with you to buy crack .. .. That is just pathetic.

    • Kool_Keith on February 5, 2013 at 11:56 am

      I was thinking the samething. She should have her kids taken away from her just for doing that. They don’t even mention that in the story though.

      • CRE on February 5, 2013 at 7:12 pm

        Nope not mentioned but you see what color her hand is?? Thats why it wasnt mentioned….she should have been charged also!

        • Wow.. on February 6, 2013 at 10:09 am

          You are really going to bring race into this? I swear it is people like you who keep the race war roaring on.

          Good job.

    • Gill on February 5, 2013 at 1:30 pm

      We have a life, that’s why we can comment on those who dont. I have NO sympathy for drug addicts, or those who sell……..they are lazy (dont want to work apparently) and have no regard for the law or the humans they are poisoning. Get a life indeed !

    Don’t see any kids in the Toyota, an I thought she was buying pills.

    • Cornell on February 5, 2013 at 4:46 pm

      Photo 5 and 7. The female driver of the Toyota, stated to police that she was supposed to buy crack cocaine.

      • WERWE on February 6, 2013 at 9:22 am

        The car the kids were in is red, the Toyota is silver

      • Freefaller on February 6, 2013 at 2:05 pm

        In pics 5 and 7, you can see a child in the back of a red car when another man in a green Jersey is being arrested. The woman was driving a silver Toyota Camry. Perhaps the child belonged to the defendant, Tommy Richardson. The story states that he was driving a red Crown Vic.

    • Nicole on February 5, 2013 at 5:08 pm

      There’s a little girl wearing a white headband in the back of the red car. There’s a head in the back of the silver toyota; hard to tell whether it’s a child or not. Sad Sad Sad regardless that you would take your kids with you to buy drugs.

        Must have been your momma

    Ain’t nobody got time for that!

    It is terrifying to hear over and over that they were released the same day. If they confiscated the money, cars and home where did the bail money come from? The judges should be hung for letting these CRIMINALS out so quickly but maybe we need to shoot the bail bondsmen as well. No, I am not condoning violence toward these business men but it is so frustrating.
