The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of persons pictured. On January 24, 2018, the two individuals entered the Leonardtown McKays Food & Drug, located on Merchants Lane. Once inside the store the pair separated and purchased small items with a $100 bill; while the cashiers were making change, the suspects then asked cashiers to make change for other $100 bills. Ultimately, the cashiers became confused and the suspects were able to obtain well over the amount of change they should have received.
Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects/ and or this incident is asked to contact Cpl. Nelson at (301) 475-4200 extension *8117, or by email at Kristi.Nelson@stmarysmd.com. Citizens may remain anonymous and contact Crime Solvers at (301) 475-3333, or text a tip to “TIP239” and their message to “CRIMES” (274637). Through the Crime Solvers Program, tipsters are eligible for an award of up to $1,000 for information about a crime in St. Mary’s County that leads to an arrest or indictment.
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 email@example.com
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
