  1. Right across from or at least very close b the sheriff’s office and in broad daylight smdh!!! Wth is going on down here in Lexington Park?? Enough is enough people!!

  2. wow and i almost bought a house in lexington park to. that town is not what it was it use to be 20 years ago. glad i didn’t move back down there. all the violent crimes in the news kind of turned me away from that area

    1. It is EXACTLY this way 20 years ago. In 1980 the two hot spots for crime and jungle antics were Lexington Park (LP City) and Chesapeake Ranch Estates (CRE). State funding was routed to both locations to help reduce crime, of course after a little was skimmed from the top.

    1. That’s not who was skimming state funds off the top in d4m’s post as there are no Democrats in those positions, that would be republicans ripping you off, hon.
