In December, 2019, the Charles County government obtained a permanent injunction from the Circuit Court for Charles County forbidding Family First Management Group (“X4B”) from using the premises at 7075 Indian Head Highway without proper zoning permits. Historically, these types of zoning violations are handled by qualified County personnel, not by the Sheriff’s Office.

This afternoon, the Circuit Court for Charles County issued an order prohibiting any person from entering 7075 Indian Head Highway unless accompanied by a County official or by leave of court.  Anyone entering the property in violation of the Court’s order may be subject to arrest. Today, the Sheriff’s Office was granted authorization to enforce the Court’s order denying entry to the premises.

Directed by Sheriff Troy D. Berry, officers will be deployed to the establishment to enforce the Court order and keep the peace.  “Since this issue began in November, the Sheriff’s Office has been working closely with County officials and has been committed to our mission of ensuring public safety and policing responsibly,” said Sheriff Berry.

The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is a full-service law enforcement agency comprised of more than 600 police, corrections and civilian personnel responsible for protecting more than 150,000 residents.
