Halloween decoration thief gets special “treat” from Sheriff’s Office

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office has identified a suspect in a rash of stolen Halloween decorations in the California area over the weekend.
While the suspect has not been arrested at this time, numerous theft charges are pending through deputy application. Once charges are issued, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will notify the public with further information.  

Multiple victims residing in the Challenger Estates neighborhood of the Wildewood subdivision in California reported outside Halloween decorations were taken during the overnight hours of Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, and Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

The suspect was developed as a result of neighborhood checks by Sheriff’s Deputies and video surveillance, which was also shared on social media.

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 davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.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
