  1. Law enforcement did their job. Let’s see if the judges, commissioner’s and state’s attorneys do theirs.

  2. Outstanding Police work!!
    For those so privileged to have enough time on your hands to hate on Law Enforcement, if you were in danger, they’d drop everything to come to your aid, now remember that.
    Congratulations to the fine humans in uniform, especially those @ the Calvert County Sheriff’s Department🇺🇲, kudos!!

  3. Read the story. What’s that image that pops in your head? Yeah, mine too. And everyone else too. No doubt what type did this.

      1. You said “number 1s from PG County”… I live in PG county. Less than 1% of the Black people here commit crimes and nearly half of the Black people here have graduated from a college or a university. Yes we have serious crime here– but it’s done by a small percentage who terrorize everybody else. Stop insulting my neighbors just because they have dark skin.

  4. So this isn’t related to what happened in California Giant’s pharmacy then? Where’s that story, Baynet?

  5. I reported a lady and man tried to steal my prescription from me coming from the ER after an accident. I called the hotline number, when the police got there he questioned me and the suspects. The police found drugs and pills on them. I had to go to court 3 times for this and never got paid anything. Protect yourself and let these cops do their own job.

  6. They sound like the robber from in Mongomery County is robbed the Harris teeter in Olney Maryland

  7. Say it ain’t so! It’s not unusual that dey are now setting their sights on Calvert County after ruining DC, PG, Charles and part of St. Mary’s. And why not? Calvert is the last county in southern Maryland…

    1. Yep. My thoughts exactly. Criminals are on their way and will destroy Calvert just like Pg, Charles and st Marys. Glad I’m on the downside.

  8. And the guy who jumped the counter at Giant in California knew exactly where the narcotics were kept? Hmmmm! I’m sure plea deals are already in the works. 5 years, 2.5 years with good behavior, 1 year with good behavior and finding God. They’ll be out in 6 months.

  9. How many times does the same things have to happen with the same profile until you clown’s WAKE UP!

    1. I believe you mean – clowns. If you’re going to be spectacularly racist, at least be smart. Oh, wait, I don’t think those things go hand in hand…

  10. Yes everyone knows P.G. County is the epicenter of model neighborhoods, civility, low crime, and well educated, intelligent citizenship. Now could we have some solid facts to prove these claims.

  11. These folks needs to find a darn JOB ! Stop stealing stuff that doesn’t belong to you, work for what you want just like most of us do, it’s NOT THAT HARD TO GO TO WORK!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
