PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (Dec. 2, 2009)—The Calvert Investigative Team today released the following information regarding an armed home invasion which occurred on Tuesday in Prince Frederick:
On December 1 at 9:52 p.m. members of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office and members of the Maryland State Police, Prince Frederick Barrack "U" responded to the report of an armed robbery that occurred at a home on Mackall Road in St Leonard. Dep. Christopher Waldron made contact with a female victim. It was learned that three white males had kicked open the front door brandishing firearms demanding the occupants of the residence get on the floor. While in the residence, the male suspects pointed firearms in the face of the three victims and stated, "Get me the pills." The suspects began to rummage through the victims' drawers and stole six bottles of prescription medication, prescribed to one of the victims. The suspects then fled the scene on foot to an unknown destination.
Det. Michael Mudd of the Calvert Investigative Team, comprised of members of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office, the Maryland State Police Prince Frederick Barrack "U" and the Calvert County State's Attorney's Office, arrived on the scene and began the investigation. The victim advised that present during the robbery was her fiancé and his 17-year-old son. She further described the three males to be in their twenties. She advised that she believed all three suspects were brandishing shotgun-type firearms. She described the first male to be 6 feet in height, of medium build wearing dark colored clothing, a hooded sweatshirt and a black mask. The second male was described as being 6 feet in height, wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt with a red bandana covering his face. The third male was 5'11" in height and also was wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and a black mask. She advised that one of the suspects placed the barrel of his gun to her head at which point she believed that she was going to die.
The fiancé of the female victim advised that following the robbery, he observed a vehicle at the intersection of Matapeake Court and Mackall Road with the engine running, occupied by a lone female. Further investigation of that information has revealed four suspects and charges are currently pending.
