Charlotte Hall, Md- This morning the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office(SMCSO) has responded to an incident at the Charlotte Hall M&T Bank at 37660 Mohawk Drive, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622. We spoke with Corporal Julie Yingling, the Sheriff’s Office PIO who said it was originally an alarm call, that has now been classified as a robbery.
In the image, submitted by a reader of The Southern Maryland Chronicle; you can see an area surrounding the bank taped off, and at least two SMCSO vehicles. The Crime Lab is also on the scene.
Watch out for emergency vehicles in the area, and follow the officer’s directions if traveling in the area.
This is a developing story.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
