LA PLATA, Md. (March 15, 2012)The Charles County Sheriff's Office today released the following incident and arrest reports.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY PATROLS: Sheriff Rex W. Coffey said CCSO officers will be out this St. Patrick's Day conducting saturation patrols looking for impaired drivers. Across the nation, St. Patrick's Day has become a popular night out to celebrate with friends and family. Unfortunately, due to the large volume of drunk drivers, the night out has also become very dangerous. "We ask that if you're planning to go out, simply designate a sober driver," said Sheriff Coffey. Although recent nationwide statistics are not available yet, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that in 2009, nationwide, there were 103 crash fatalities on St. Patrick's Day. Out of that number, 47 people were killed in traffic crashes that involved a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher.
OFFICERS APPREHEND THEFT SUSPECT: On March 12 at 11:59 p.m., officers responded to the 300 block of Barksdale Avenue, Waldorf, for a report of two people breaking into a car. Cpl. Belfield responded and observed one subject running toward a wooded area. Cpl. Belfield ordered the subject to stop but he refused and continued running, dropping a nylon glove. The suspect, Tramane Vondell Dorsey, 19, of Newburg, was apprehended after a brief foot pursuit. Officers canvassed the area and found several items that had just been stolen from a car. A search of Dorsey revealed a small flash light, a folding knife and a pocket full of coins. Dorsey was arrested and charged with carrying burglary tools and theft. Detectives are in the process of identifying the second suspect.
