Mechanicsville couple arrested in attempted robbery

On December 13, 2017, at approximately 9:13 PM, the victim was in the parking lot of Dollar General, located in Charlotte Hall, when she was approached by a white female.  The female suspect then attempted to take the victim’s purse; after a brief struggle the suspect was able to obtain the purse and fled on foot. The victim was transported from the scene to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for routine medical observation.  The suspect was last observed fleeing the area and running toward Mohawk Drive, in Charlotte Hall. The suspect was described as a white female in her 20’s, with blonde hair, approximately 5’0”-5’2” in height, and at the time of this incident was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, with a puffy black jacket over the sweatshirt, and black pants/leggings.

Through further investigation by Corporal Kerby, two suspects were developed; Karen Anne Granville, age 28, and Jessy James Snead age 38, both from Mechanicsville. It was determined Granville had committed the robbery, while Snead acted as the getaway driver.  On December 27, 2017, Cpl. Kerby located both suspects and placed them under arrest.  Granville was charged with Robbery, Assault 2nd Degree, and Theft.  Snead was charged with Robbery, Assault 2nd Degree, Theft, and Access after Statute (Accessory after the Fact to a Felony).


The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
