RECOVERED PROPERTY: On March 14 about 4 p.m., Oscar Joseph Kluh Jr., 78, of La Plata, was on Heritage Green Parkway near Food Lion in La Plata when he found a wallet containing an undisclosed amount of money. Kluh took the wallet to the Charles County Sheriff's Office La Plata District Station. Officer J. Martin located the owner of the wallet, a 30-year-old Bryans Road woman. The woman responded to the station to retrieve the wallet.
"I would like to thank Mr. Kluh for his act of kindness and honesty," said Charles County Sheriff Frederick E. Davis. "He is a role model for our community. Had someone else found this woman's wallet, it's possible she never would have seen it or her money again, but Mr. Kluh did the responsible thing and turned everything over to us so we could locate the owner. I commend him for his actions."
BURGLARY: On March 23 at 11:34 a.m., Charles County Sheriff's officers responded to a residence in the 6700 block of Leslie Avenue in Bryans Road for the burglary in progress report. A 29-year-old woman called 911 and reported seeing a boy exit her residence through a basement window. When officers arrived, the boy had fled the scene. Officers found the boy had damaged a bedroom door inside the residence. Officers identified the boy as a 15-year-old Bryans Road resident and located him at his home. The boy was charged with First Degree Burglary and released to his mother. Officer M. O'Shields is investigating.
