Two more cases developed by the indicted Baltimore police officers were dropped this morning by the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office.

Anderson Crenshaw was released from prison early Thursday morning after being jailed since April 2016. Crenshaw was arrested last year by Detective Maurice Ward on a gun charge.

His attorney, Ericka King, says the state chose to nolle prosequi Crenson's gun case because it was developed by Sgt. Wayne Jenkins, Detective Maurice Ward and Detective Evodio Hendrix.

King says she has been trying to get Crenshaw out of jail since August and requested Officer Maurice Ward's files from the state, but she was told there was nothing to give.

"It is more than an unfortunate circumstance," King said ,"Our clients have been telling us about these officers and other officers for years. I am just happy it is over for Mr. Crenshaw."
