LA PLATA, Md. (February 14, 2012)—The Charles County Sheriff's Office today released the following incident and arrest reports.

ASSAULT/PROPERTY DESTRUCTION: On Feb. 12 at 2:25 a.m., Charles County Sheriff’s officers responded to the 300 block of University Drive in Waldorf for an assault and property destruction report. The investigation revealed the victims were in their vehicle parked in their driveway when Xavier Terrell Stancil, 35, of Waldorf drove to the residence and began ramming his vehicle into the victims’ vehicle. The victims drove away and called police as Stancil followed and continued striking their vehicle. Officers arrived, stopped Stancil’s vehicle and ultimately arrested him. He was charged with malicious destruction of property and two counts each of first- and second-degree assault. He was being held at the Charles County Detention Center pending an appearance before a district court commissioner. Officer R. Walls investigated.

BURGLARY: Sometime between 7:20 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. Feb. 10, suspect(s) entered a residence in the 10900 block of West Point Place in White Plains and stole a Microsoft Xbox 360 video game system. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Charles County Sheriff’s Office at 301-932-2222 or Charles County Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.

DRUG POSSESSION: On Feb. 9 at 11:58 p.m., Charles County Sheriff’s officers responded to a residence in the 200 block of Westdale Drive in Waldorf for the reported argument between relatives during which a man had made threats of suicide. While en route, officers were advised the man was in possession of a shot gun and two children, ages 1 and 2, were inside the residence.

Officers arrived at the residence and led two adults in the residence to safety. Officers attempted to contact the man to encourage him to leave the residence peacefully but the man did not have a working cell phone or a landline telephone. Because the man had made suicidal threats and had access to a gun, officers evacuated the occupants of nearby residences. At 1:18 a.m., the man exited his residence and surrendered to officers.

Officers entered the residence and found the two children in bedrooms and unharmed. While inside the residence, the officers also discovered a marijuana cigarette, marijuana packaged in small plastic baggies and additional items consistent with marijuana distribution. The officers also recovered a shotgun which was later found to be unregistered.

The man was identified as Harold Tracy McClendon, Jr., 20, and was transported to Civista Medical Center for an evaluation of his mental status. Upon his release from the hospital, officers charged him with possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of an unregistered shotgun. He was being held at the Charles County Detention Center pending an appearance before a district court commissioner.

Officers C. Garner and J. Feldman investigated.

MOTOR VEHICLE CRASH: On Feb. 9 about 8:45 a.m., a Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department F350 utility truck being driving by a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician was responding with its lights and sirens activated to a call at the Emergency Medical Services Station on St. Ignatius Drive in Waldorf. While en route, the utility truck hit a 2004 Ford Expedition stopped at the intersection of St. Charles Parkway and St. Ignatius Drive. The driver of the utility truck continued to the station and then left in another vehicle to respond to an unrelated call for service.

The driver of the Expedition, Carol Lynn Ketterman, 27, of White Plains, remained at the scene of the crash. The Charles County Sheriff’s Office responded there for the investigation. Ketterman sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to Civista Medical Center for treatment. The Expedition sustained minor damage.

Officers responded to the EMS station to further investigate. The driver of the utility truck had return to the station after being notified by fire department communications personnel of the collision. She was identified as Jessica Lynn Monday, 23, of Waldorf. Officers issued her citations for failing to immediately return to and remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury; emergency driver failure to drive safely; and failure to control speed to avoid a collision. The utility truck had also sustained minor damage.

Cpl. J. Hopkins of the Traffic Operations Unit investigated.

DISORDERLY/ASSAULT ON POLICE: On Feb. 8 at 11:56 p.m., Charles County Sheriff’s officers C. Garner and J. Feldman were patrolling the area of Crain Highway and Acton Lane in Waldorf when they observed two vehicles whose occupants appeared to be arguing with a female walking alongside the vehicles. After the officers approached the vehicles and pedestrian to investigate, one of the drivers became disorderly and assaulted the officers. The driver was subsequently arrested. She was identified as Lakita Patricia McCoy, 25, of Richmond, Va., and was charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. She was being held at the Charles County Detention Center pending an appearance before a district court commissioner.

COMMERCIAL VEHICLE DUI: On Feb. 8 at 8:53 a.m., Officer B.

Officer Saunders observed a 2002 International Dump Truck with a registration violation and conducted a traffic stop. When he approached the driver, Officer Saunders smelled alcohol. Further investigation revealed the driver, Joseph Clark Mims, 53, of NW Washington, D.C., was intoxicated. Mims was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and other commercial vehicle violations.

PROPERTY DESTRUCTION/THEFT: On Feb. 8 at 6:23 a.m., Charles County Sheriff’s Officer C. Gilroy was patrolling the Wakefield area in Waldorf when a citizen alerted her to a possible disturbance. The citizen had been walking through the parking lot on Amber Leaf Place when he discovered a man drilling a hole into the gas tank of a Ford Explorer. When the citizen confronted the man, the man fled on foot. Officers responded to the location and discovered the man had drilled holes into the gas tank of another vehicle as well. Police communications officers broadcast a lookout for the suspect and soon thereafter Officer D. Walker found him walking nearby. He was identified as Vincente Arsensio Kyle, 28, of Waldorf.
