St. Mary's Co. Sheriff's Reports

LEONARDTOWN, Md. (Aug. 27, 2013)—The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office released the following incident and arrest reports.

INDECENT EXPOSURE, PROSTITUTION: On August 24, Deputy Austin Schultz responded to a report of a female exposing herself to traffic on Maryland Route 246 (Great Mills Road) in Lexington Park. Upon arrival, Deputy Schultz observed Sheila Vernon, 44, of Lexington Park, walking in the parking lot of a local business along Great Mills Road. When the officer made contact with Vernon, she had entered the passenger seat of a vehicle. Upon further investigation, Deputy Shultz determined Vernon had solicited the vehicle operator. Vernon was arrested and charged with Indecent Exposure and Soliciting for Prostitution. Vernon was released to the custody of the St. Mary's County Detention Center pending an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.

EXXON ROBBERY: On August 25 at 2:27 a.m., police units responded to the Charlotte Hall Exxon for the report of an armed robbery. Upon arrival, deputies determined that two subjects, one armed with an unknown type of handgun, had demanded money from the clerk. The clerk complied and the suspects fled the business on foot with an undetermined amount of proceeds from the business. Sheriff's Office K-9 units responded and conducted a track of the suspects. The track was subsequently lost in the area of the Arby's Restaurant.

Suspect #1 is described as a tall African American male, mid to late twenties, wearing all black clothing, a face mask and armed with a handgun. Suspect #2 is described as a white male, mid to late twenties, short, wearing all black clothing and a face mask.

Detectives have assumed the investigation and anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Detective Robert Merritt at 301-475-4200 ext 9042 or Crime Solvers at 301-475-3333. Tipsters can also text their tips in to "TIP239" plus your message to "CRIMES" (274637). Callers and tipsters do not have to leave a name, just the information. If the information leads to an arrest and conviction, the caller/tipster may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

VEHICLE COLLISION WITH INJURY: On August 22 at 7:42 p.m., patrol units responded to the intersection of Rt. 235 and Shady Mile Drive in California for the reported serious motor vehicle collision. Patrol Units discovered a 1992 Honda Civic CRX, operated by Anthony Paul Levine, 35, of Denton, had struck a traffic signal support pole. Mr. Levine was trapped in the vehicle and required extrication. After Mr. Levine was extricated from the vehicle, he was transported to Baltimore Shock Trauma by Maryland State Police Helicopter Trooper 7 with what were believed to be life threatening injuries. Due to the injuries sustained by Mr. Levine, the Sheriff's Office Collision Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.

Investigators determined that Mr. Levine was traveling northbound on Rt. 235 approaching Shady Mile Drive, reportedly in a speed contest with a full-size white pick-up truck, possibly a diesel, which had a loud exhaust and some type of green exterior lighting. At the intersection of Shady Mile Drive, Mr. Levine lost control of his vehicle, left the northbound side of the roadway and struck a traffic light support pole causing him to become entrapped in his vehicle. Mr. Levine was reported to be in stable condition at the time of this press release. Speed is the primary contributing factor to the crash with no indications of impairment. This investigation is on going and anyone who may have been in the area, observed the crash or have information on the full size white pick-up truck is asked to contact Deputy Alvin Beishline # 252 of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office Collision Reconstruction Team at (301)475-4200 Ext. 9019.

SEX OFFENDER CHECKS: On Aug. 23, as a result of regular sex offender checks, it was revealed that two offenders were not in compliance. Gary Leon Davenport, 49, a Tier III lifetime sex offender residing in Lexington Park, was taken into custody and charged with failure to register upon release from a detention center.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Michael Christopher Quesenberry, 27, a Tier III lifetime registered sex offender. Quesenberry had a Mechanicsville address, but has moved from that address and his whereabouts are unknown.

Anyone with information about Michael Quesenberry's whereabouts is urged to contact Det. Bill Raddatz at (301) 475-4200 Ext. 1958 or for Crime Solvers, call 301-475-3333 or text "TIP239" plus your message to "CRIMES" (274637).
