PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (Nov. 3, 2009) - The Calvert County Sheriff's Office recently released the following information.
HUNTINGTOWN AREA THEFTS: The Huntingtown area continues to be inundated with thefts from vehicles and on three occasions, thefts of vehicles where the keys had been left inside. These three vehicles were later found abandoned within the county. The unknown suspect(s) have been stealing mostly electronics (GPS's and cameras) and also tools and currency from vehicles. The majority of these vehicles were unlocked and had been parked in residential neighborhoods. At this time, there are no known suspects, however, on October 16 at 12:48 a.m. a local Huntingtown business had video surveillance of two possible suspects. These suspects were video taped going through vehicles on the premises, removing property from said vehicles and putting the property into what appears to be a 1990's Ford model pick-up truck, possibly dark blue or green in color with a tan stripe at the bottom. Anyone with information regarding any of these crimes is asked to contact Det. Nicholas DeFelice at 410-535-2800 ext. 2669.

FATAL ACCIDENT: On October 24 at approximately 1:00 p.m. members of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office Crash Reconstruction Team (CRT) and the Maryland State Police responded to the intersection of Md. Rt. 2 (Solomons Island Road) and Kent Road in Sunderland for a report of a serious motor vehicle crash involving three vehicles.
A preliminary investigation revealed that a tan 1995 Nissan Altima was traveling north on Md. Rt. 2 and was in the process of making a left turn onto westbound Kent Road. The operator of the 1995 Nissan Altima was yielding to the southbound traffic on Md. Rt. 2 when his vehicle was struck by a 1994 Toyota Corolla Station Wagon in a rear-end type collision causing the 1995 Nissan Altima to enter the southbound lane of Md. Rt. 2. The 1995 Nissan Altima was subsequently struck by a 2004 Ford Explorer which was traveling south on Md. Rt. 2. Upon impact with the 2004 Ford Explorer the 1995 Nissan Altima was redirected in a southwesterly direction and came to a final rest in the southbound lane culvert of Md. Rt. 2.
The operator of the 1995 Nissan Altima, identified as Glenn Eugene Holland, 46, of Sunderland, sustained mortal injuries and was pronounced dead at Calvert Memorial Hospital by the Emergency Room staff. Mr. Holland was the only occupant of the 1995 Nissan Altima.
The operator of the 1994 Toyota Corolla Station Wagon was identified as Paul Charles Moler, 32, of St. Leonard. A front seat passenger was identified as Christine A. Moler, 33. Both occupants sustained minor injuries and were treated and released on the scene.
The operator of the 2004 Ford Explorer was identified as Kathy Diane Walton, 55, of Huntingtown. The front seat passenger was identified as Kimberly Diane King, 33, of Lusby. The Ford Explorer was also occupied by three juveniles. All five occupants of the Ford Explorer were transported to the Calvert Memorial Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries and later released.
Cpl. V. Bortchevsky of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office Crash Reconstruction Team (CRT) is conducting a complete investigation into the events that lead up to the collision.
Cpl. Bortchevsky advised that the investigation is on-going, but based on initial examination it appears that all persons involved were wearing restraining devices, that alcohol or drugs are not suspected and that no one was cited at the scene but traffic charges are possible.
Any additional information regarding this crash should be forwarded to Cpl. V. Bortchevsky of CRT at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-535-2800.
