DUBLIN — Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) charged a father and son with hunting violations last night off of Robinson Mill Road in Harford County.

NRP officers responded to a complaint of shots fired in the area of Robinson Mill Road. The complainant reported that the rounds almost struck his house. NRP officers arrived and observed a pickup truck shining the headlights across a field. Upon stopping the truck, officers found two rifles, a hand-held spotlight and two field dressed deer in the truck.

Novopny, 36, both of Bel Air were issued citations for casting the rays of an artificial light upon the fields and woodlands with a weapon in possession, hunting at nighttime, hunting deer with prohibited firearm (use of rifle in a shotgun county) and hunting deer during closed season. In addition David Novopny was issued a citation for failure to comply with a lawful police order.

Two rifles, two hunting knives, a spotlight, and hunting clothing were seized as evidence. The hunting charges have a maximum fine of $1,500 and or 6 months imprisonment for first time offenders. In addition, if found guilty, a person may lose the privilege to hunt in the state for a period of 2 to 5 years and all evidence seized can be forfeited to the state.
