Great Mills man charged in multiple Lexington Park burglaries

Throughout the month of January 2018, deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to multiple reports of residential burglaries and burglaries to motor vehicles, in the Lexington Park area.  Neighborhood canvasses were conducted and images of the suspect were captured with the use of residential security cameras.

The investigations were continued by the Criminal Investigations Division, (CID), and through the course of the investigations, information was developed identifying Jermaine Stanley Greenwell, age 26, of Great Mills, as the individual responsible for the crimes. Greenwell was arrested on February 9, 2018, and was charged with the following criminal violations:


  • Burglary First Degree
  • Attempted Burglary First Degree
  • Rouge and Vagabond
  • Theft $100 to Under $1500


This case has been reviewed with the State’s Attorney’s Office, and further criminal charges are forthcoming.  Anyone with further information regarding these cases, is asked to contact Detective Melissa Hulse at (301) 475-4200 extension *1996, or by email at

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
