A routine traffic stop in Covington last night is being credited for the discovery of a methamphetamine lab.
Police say they pulled a vehicle over for speeding around 8:15.
During the course of events, an officer called for help from a narcotics dog team at the Alleghany County Sheriff's office.
This led police to get a search warrant for a room at the *Townhouse Motel* on West Main Street, where they found several items used to make meth.
Charges in the case are pending.

(( This isn't what you think. It's not a drug raid. It's not a felony arrest. Instead, it's what Baltimore police thought they'd never find themselves doing....it's a witness roundup. Because in Baltimore witnesses to violent crimes have become so afraid to testify....they're often harder to find than the defendants themselves.
Prosecutors say the problem is rapidly getting out of control.

(SOT/ E. Wesley Adams, Assistant State's Attorney)


"I probably prosecute anywhere from 12 to 15 homicides in a given year. I would say about 90 percent of my cases involve intimidation in one form or another."
NARR:
And judges like John Glynn say when witnesses are found they're often scared speechless....literally speechless.

(SOT/Glynn)


"I've had several cases particularly in pre-trial motions where the witnesses will simply not say a word. They simply sit there."

(NARR OVER SOUND TRACK AND CD COVER GRAPHIC:)


There's even a popular CD out on the streets there called "Stop Snitching."

(NAT SOUND POP:)


"....give evidence to the pigs....I'll destroy your house."

(NARR OVER GRAPHIC:)


And in case you miss the point.....the photo on the back of the CD is of three dead bodies above the phrase: "Snitch Prevention."
NARR:
Gang members even carry their intimidation into the courtrooms. State's attorney Adams recalled one witness so traumatized her face swelled up.

(SOT/Adams)


"What caused the stress wasn't simply sitting so close to the defendant, it was the 12 boys from the neighborhood who were sitting in the back two rows of the courtroom watching her testify."
NARR:
And they aren't just watching. Officials say some use cell phones to text-message witness testimony back to the street even as it happens...so gang members know instantly who ratted on them.

(ON CAMERA BRIDGE)


Oddly enough, the reason for this boldness may be in the law itself. Drug and violent crime convictions frequently carry a 20-year to life sentence. But witness intimidation? In Maryland....that's just a five year crime. So what have the defendants got to lose?

SOT/Judge Glynn


"I have looked these kids in the face when they are there discussing pleas. They are utterly unafraid. These cases will always have to be tried. The defendants do not believe they will be convicted. They are unafraid."
NARR:
Only the witnesses and their families, police say...are truly afraid.

(SOT/Adams)


"The perfect crime is one you get away with. The best way to get away with it is to keep people silent."
NARR:
And in Baltimore lately...the criminals seem to be doing just that.

It's called electric football. A newer version of an old time classic. Every weekend a league of men in Texas plug into *the electrifying* game. The game is complete with a well designed field, painted players and old legends that come to life. The men say the game gives them a chance to have their own N-F-L team.
