RadioOnFire.com – A Maryland State Police sergeant has been indicted on suspicion of misconduct in office after he was accused of alerting a civilian state police employee of a pending search and seizure warrant to be carried out on their home, acting State Prosecutor Kelly B. Madigan announced Tuesday. A Wicomico County grand jury returned the indictment against Sgt. Michael McComas. The indictment alleges that McComas’ disclosure allowed the employee time to remove items from their home prior to the warrant’s execution. “It is imperative that law enforcement officers, who take an oath to uphold the law, are held accountable when they violate the law, especially when it relates to disclosing confidential information to the target of an investigation,” Madigan said in a statement. No court date appears in online court records. It is not clear if McComas has an attorney.
