Sheriff’s Office searching for Lusby robbery suspect

Press Release, Calvert County Sheriff’s Office

On December 27th at 6:41 a.m. Deputies responded to the Shell Gas Station in Lusby for a report of an attempted robbery. Witnesses advised that a white male suspect in his 30’s parked a newer model Nissan passenger car (blue/gray in color) at the Lusby Post Office.

They observed the male walk to the Lusby Shell. Before entering the Shell, the suspect covered his face, with what appears to be a small red shirt. The suspect confronted the cashier and demanded money from the register. He displayed a metal wrench to the cashier while demanding the money. As other customers approached the business, the suspect ran back to his vehicle at the Post Office.

Witnesses observed him leave at a high rate of speed toward the traffic light at HG Truman and Town Center Dr.

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
