The Treasury Department announced Wednesday that it raised $191.3 million in its latest auction of TARP securities, including $5.8 million for its stake in Delmar Bancorp in Salisbury. The Troubled Asset Relief Program was created more than four years ago to infuse cash into banks at a time when the country's financial system was near collapse. In exchange for cash, the government received securities from banks that paid dividends and interest. The government is winding down the TARP program, and this latest auction is the first in which securities were sold at banks that were behind in payments.

DELMAR -- David Snyder used to save a few bucks on a carton of cigarettes just by driving across the Maryland state line to a nearby Delaware tobacco store.But that ended two weeks ago, he said, when he got pulled over here by an unmarked police car. And, faster than you can blow out a match, Mr. Snyder was handed a warning for illegally importing untaxed tobacco into Maryland.In an effort to keep potential revenue from new taxes on Maryland tobacco sales from landing in Delaware cash registers, the Maryland comptroller's office has dusted off a little-known law prohibiting anyone from bringing into Maryland more than two packs of untaxed cigarettes.

Delmar police have jurisdiction in both states. Fontaine was stopped in the Delaware portion of Delmar on Sept. 8, 1999, after Detective Ronald Marzac recognized him as a man whose driver's license had been suspended in Maryland, according to the court opinion.
