BURGLARY, WARRANT ARREST: During the months of November 2013 through January 2014, deputies responded to multiple motor vehicle thefts and thefts of personal items from motor vehicles in the Callaway and Piney Point area of St. Mary's County.

The Criminal Investigations Division assumed the cases and detectives were able to identify a suspect. Warrants were obtained for Charles H. Thompson, Jr. age 19, of Lexington Park.
