Calvert County Sheriff’s Office via Facebook

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office would like to inform the public that Kenneth M. Hobar, the individual known to our community for Facebook impersonations, fake Facebook/social media profiles, antagonizing posts to local businesses, churches, and community organizations, etc. has been apprehended and is currently incarcerated.

Hobar, 67, of Lecanto, Florida was arrested on March 21 on an active warrant for a misdemeanor charge of Stalking – (willfully, maliciously, repeatedly follow, harass, cyberstalk another person.)

Hobar appeared in the Citrus County Fifth Judicial Circuit Court on November 13, 2019, where he was facing trial. Sheriff Evans was present in court to testify at the sentencing. Hobar was found guilty for the Stalking charge and was sentenced to 89 days in jail and one-year probation following his incarceration.

A condition of Hobar’s probation is to have no contact with Sheriff Evans and not to post any more items on social media regarding the Sheriff. If the public should see any evidence of malicious posts for the next year, please contact the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office at (410) 535-2800.


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
