Reward Offered in County Crime, Theft Investigation

  • By

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating 15 cases of malicious destruction of property.  These crimes occurred February 4, 2010 and February 5, 2010 in the Hollywood area of St. Mary’s County, specifically on Morgan Road, Joy Chapel Road and Bateman Court.

Unknown person(s) used an object(s), on several occasions’ alcoholic beverage bottles, to smash vehicle windshields and mailboxes.  Based on the investigations it appears these crimes may be related. 

In addition, the Sheriff’s Office is also investigating three thefts from autos on Clarks Landing Road in Hollywood.  The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office cannot stress enough the importance of locking vehicles, even vehicles parked in the driveway at a residence and securing all valuables.

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact Lt. Eric Sweeney at (301) 475-4200 ext. 1915 or Crime Solvers at (301) 475-3333.  The caller does have to leave his/her name.  If the information leads to the arrest and conviction, the caller may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. 

The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office would like to remind the public that in addition to our regular Crime Solver's telephone number (301) 475-3333, our Office also participates in Crime Solvers Text Tips.
Tipsters can send short message service (SMS) tips from their cellular phones or personal digital assistant (PDA) by texting “TIP239” plus your message to “CRIMES” (274637).  After sending the message the user is given an anonymous alias identifier.  The user can be engaged in a 2-way dialogue with the Sheriff’s Office to elicit more information. 

Sheriff Timothy Cameron encourages everyone to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity, such as unsolved cases, vandalism, theft, the sale and distribution of drugs or any other information the citizen deems important for the security of the school and the community.  Since tip texting has been integrated into the Crime Solvers Program individuals who text in their tips may eligible for a $1,000.00 reward if that tip leads to an arrest or indictment.
