July 27, 1993|By Staff Report

EASTON -- A state trooper arrested in March on conspiracy charges avoided a court trial yesterday by agreeing to resign from the Maryland State Police.

In exchange, criminal counts against him were placed on the Talbot County District Court's stet, or inactive, docket.

Tfc. George Arthur Lloyd, 26, was charged with conspiring to help two inmates who wanted to escape from the Talbot County Detention Center.

He was charged with attempting to obtain and smuggle into the jail a cutting instrument.

He also was charged with illegally obtaining the inmates' criminal and motor vehicle records.

He would not provide details about the case, calling it "a mess that never should have happened."
