Convicted oyster, crab poacher arrested again
John Hunter Haddaway, 23, of Tilghman, was arrested on Monday by Natural
Resourcers Police and charged with poaching from an oyster sanctuary.
Officers watched Haddaway dredging for oysters just before noon
approximately five miles northwest of Crisfield, within the Tangier Sound
Oyster Sanctuary. They seized 12 bushels of oysters from Haddaway’s boat and
returned them to the sanctuary.
Since 2005, Haddaway has been charged eight times with natural resources
violations. He has been found guilty of harvesting crabs and oysters without
a license, dredging in a restricted area and harvesting undersized oysters
on two separate occasions. Two charges--overharvesting oysters and failing
to display his Tidal Fish ID on his boat--are set for trial in Somerset
District Court on March 10.
He is scheduled to be back in Somerset District Court on March 31 on the
Return to Hunting Accident Index
