A tip from the public led to the arrests Wednesday of a Middletown woman and a Wilmington man on charges they were unlawfully shooting snow geese from the roadway with a shotgun, near Middletown.

Mark E. Anderson, 52, was charged with felony possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, possession of a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle, hunting waterfowl with a prohibited shot size, hunting in a safety zone, hunting waterfowl without a federal or state duck stamp, hunting from a motor vehicle and on a public roadway, hunting without a license, possession of unlawfully killed game and conspiracy.

Sandra M. Kite, 63, was released on a summons to appear in court on charges of hunting from a motor vehicle and conspiracy.

Six unlawfully killed snow geese were confiscated from the truck as evidence, said Michael Globetti, spokesman for the state Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.

A witness spotted a pick-up in the area of Choptank Road and Bethel Church Road about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and noticed a man in the back with a shotgun.

The vehicle took off on Bethel Church Road with a woman at the wheel.

The witness called Fish and Wildlife officers and provided a description of the vehicle and the couple.

Ten minutes after receiving the call, an enforcement officer nearby who was on patrol in the area arrested the pair in the drive-by snow goose shooting.

Anderson was committed to Young Correctional Institution after failing to post $3,400 secured bail.
