DEPUTY VEHICLE ACCIDENT: Dep. N. Funchion was involved in a motor vehicle crash in his departmental vehicle on January 10 at approximately 1:00 p.m. while attempting to stop a leaking propane truck on southbound Md. Route 4 at Fowler Road in Owings. Another truck, also headed southbound, struck Dep. Funchion's patrol vehicle in the rear, causing significant damage to both vehicles, as Dep. Funchion crossed traffic from lane 2. No injuries were reported by the deputy or the driver of the other truck. The propane truck was subsequently located and is currently being inspected by Calvert County Sheriff's Office Dep. J. Dean and the Department of the Environment. The driver of the propane truck was cited by a commercial vehicle enforcement unit for numerous violations. Lt. R. Thomas and members of the Special Operations Team are on scene to assess the HAZMAT aspect of this incident. Sgt. Brian McCourt is investigating the departmental crash.

OPERATION IDENTIFICATION: In an ongoing effort to capture criminals and recover lost or stolen property, the Sheriff's Office has designed a form that is available to the public called Operation Identification. Citizens can use the form to record descriptions of property, serial numbers, model numbers and replacement cost. The form should then be kept in a secure location. In the event you are the victim of a burglary or theft, or if the property is lost, this information will greatly assist the deputies investigating your case. Often times, victims do not have this information and property that perhaps could be recovered is not. It also lessens the chance of capturing the person who committed the crime. Identified by its serial number, the property can be entered into a nationwide data base. Anytime the lost or stolen property is located, whether here in Calvert County, another Maryland jurisdiction or another state, the item can be researched in the nationwide date base, which provides owner information. If those serial numbers have been previously entered, the agency who took the report will be notified of the recovery. This will also assist the Sheriff's Office in identifying suspects who may have been involved in other cases as well. The form is available for pick up at the Sheriff's Office or you can access it from the county website by visiting and following the Sheriff's Office link.
