PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (May 20, 2010) - The Calvert Investigative Team (CIT) today released the following incident report regarding a reported carjacking in Lusby.
POSSIBLE CARJACKING: On Wednesday, May 19 at 9:14 p.m. units from the Calvert County Sheriff's Office responded to the area of Tomahawk Trail and War Bonnett Trail in Lusby for the report of a carjacking. Two male victims advised police that they were assaulted by two black males at the intersection of Sidewinder Lane and Tomahawk Trail after they refused to give a ride to one of the suspects. The victims also claimed one suspect gained partial entry into the vehicle as it was leaving. A struggle took place between one of the victims and the suspect. The driver of the vehicle continued to operate the car in an attempt to get away from the suspect. The vehicle finally stopped at the above intersection and the victims waved down a citizen for help. The suspect left on foot into the woods. A K-9 track took place towards big Sandy Run Road where the suspect was located. An initial investigation by detectives of the C.I.T. revealed that the two parties know each other. Investigation of the facts is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Det. M. Roy of C.I.T. at 410-535-2800 ext. 2597.
THEFT PREVENTION ADVISORY: The Sheriff's office would like to remind the citizens of Calvert County to make sure that all doors and windows of their homes are always locked and to lock all vehicles, secure the keys, and put technical devices such as Ipods, GPS systems, cameras and cell phones out of sight. This reminder comes after a recent rash of thefts of automobiles in the Huntingtown area. In each instance, the car had been left unlocked with the keys inside. These acts, which take only minutes to do each day, will help to prevent unwanted theft and damage to personal property. Anyone observing any suspicious activity is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office immediately at 410-535-2800.
