TANKER ACCIDENT: A residential propane delivery tanker overturned on Bensville Road (Route 229) near Carrie Court in Waldorf at approximately 9:37 a.m. on March 7. Bensville Road between Route 228 and Zoll Lane was closed as emergency crews worked at the scene. Residents living on Valley Drive, Sedgeland Court, Carrie Court, Shannon Drive, Poplar Court and Paperbirch Court were evacuated.

Officers responded and observed footprints in the snow between several homes but did not find any evidence of a break-in. Officers established a perimeter and at one point spotted the man in the distance. The subject fled and after a search was not located. The suspect is described as a black male, heavy build, mid 30's, wearing a large black coat with fur trim on the hood, blue cargo-style pants and white tennis shoes. Pfc. R. Bagley is investigating.
