Woman Outwits Would-be Robber in White Plains


On Jan. 3 at 12:15 p.m., a 21-year-old Hughesville woman was driving south on Crain Highway south of Theodore Green Boulevard in White Plains when the driver of a silver Caprice behind her began flashing a spotlight. She believed the driver was a police officer trying to stop her so she pulled to the shoulder of the road. The Caprice stopped behind her and a man exited it. The woman remained in her vehicle and the man approached her at the driver's side window and demanded money. The woman fled the scene and responded to the Sheriff's Office La Plata District Station to report the incident.

The man is described as black, is between 30 to 40 years of age and has a goatee and a dark complexion. He was wearing a black shirt, a black jacket, black boots and a black stocking cap. The Caprice is an older model and the spotlight is on the driver's side of the vehicle. There is a cover on the front tag.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Charles County Sheriff's Office at 301-932-2222. Officer D. Sylvestre is investigating.
