Police search for suspects in car vandalism cases

News Release, Charles County Sheriff’s Office

The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is investigating multiple incidents of property damage in which unknown suspect(s) shot out windows to cars. Charles County Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for the tip that leads to the arrest and indictment of the suspect(s).

Over the last two weeks, during the overnight hours, the suspect(s) used a pellet gun to shoot out the windows of more than two dozen cars throughout the county. Most of the cases occurred primarily in Waldorf; however, some cars have been damaged in White Plains and the Bensville area. In an effort to develop leads, detectives have conducted numerous neighborhood canvasses.

In addition, they have reviewed home security surveillance systems to look for additional evidence. In several cases, a white four-door passenger car was observed on surveillance footage at about the same time the incidents occurred. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. R. Logsdon at (301) 609-6436.

Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous may contact Charles County Crime Solvers by calling 1-866-411-TIPS.Tips can also be submitted online at www.charlescountycrimesolvers.com or by using the P3Intel mobile app. The investigation is ongoing.

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
