While wait­ing in jail for his hear­ing on a drug-re­lated mat­ter, a 30-year-old man has been in­dicted for al­legedly threat­en­ing to take a prose­cu­tor’s life and de­fac­ing cell walls and doors at the Calvert County De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

In­dicted by a grand jury Sept. 17, Tyson Wayne Black, whose ad­dress is not listed in on­line court records, was charged with in­tim­i­dat- ing Lisa Ridge, se­nior as­sis­tant state’s at­tor­ney, who pros­e­cuted a case where

Black was ac­cused of pos­sess­ing nar­cotic drugs with in­tent to dis­trib­ute and con­spir­ing to dis­trib­ute nar­cotic drugs. Black is also charged with ma­li­cious de­struc­tion of prop­erty for al­legedly de­stroy­ing cell walls at the de­ten­tion cen­ter in Au­gust.

Black was first ar­rested May 8 af­ter po­lice found his phone re­port­edly ex­chang­ing text mes­sages with some­one who died from an opi­oid over­dose. The texts sent from the phone num­ber as­so­ci­ated with Black sug­gested he was dis­tribut­ing heroin and co­caine, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments. Also, po­lice said the over­dose vic­tim was last seen get­ting into a white Acura pas­sen­ger

car that be­longed to Black’s girl­friend, Reina Mi­la­gro An­du­jar, 27, of Ch­e­sa­peake Beach.

When the cou­ple were stopped by po­lice at a traf­fic stop in Ch­e­sa­peake Beach, of­fi­cers re­port­edly found five small bags con­tain­ing sus­pected heroin and co­caine in

An­du­jar’s un­der­wear.

For both mat­ters, Black’s next con­fer­ence sta­tus hear­ing is set for Oct. 12 in cir­cuit court. An­du­jar’s con­fer­ence hear­ing is sched­uled for Sept. 24. Prose­cu­tors brought the same charges against her as they did with Black in the drug mat­ter.

Black is now housed at a Hager­stown cor­rec­tional fa­cil­ity.
