Maryland Natural Resources police say they've found two more illegal nets in the Chesapeake Bay.

This comes a week after police seized nearly 10 tons of illegally caught rockfish after a investigating a poaching operation.

State officials responded to the illegal fishing by shutting down the commerical gill net season three weeks early.

Even though police found more nets, it appears they're coming close to finding those responsible for poaching the fish.

They've served search warrants at a Tilghman Island home on Friday, and say they removed boxes and laptop computer.

NRP Spokesman Sgt. Art Windemuth says the warrant and seizure was related to the ongoing investigation.
