Homeless woman faces drug charges
QUEENSTOWN — Deputies from the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office responded Sept. 23 to a residence on the 6200 block of Main Street after a man there reported he had invited a woman to his home who wouldn’t leave.
The man told deputies he had met the woman online and invited her to his house, but after two days he found she had a prescription drug problem and he wanted her to leave.
