WALDORF, Md. – On November 5 at 3:05 p.m., officers responded to the 2500 block of Mattawoman Beantown Road in Waldorf for the report of a burglary in progress.

Officers met with the homeowner who indicated they were not sure if the suspect was still inside. Officers established a perimeter and a police K9 entered the house; no one was inside but there was evidence of a break-in.

Footage from a home surveillance camera was obtained and officers were able to provide a description of the suspect, which was broadcast.  

K9 Officer Willis observed a subject matching the description of the suspect on Route 925 and confirmed it was the person involved in the burglary. An investigation showed the suspect entered the home by prying open a window.

Further, the suspect was connected to a burglary at the same house in October during which shoes were stolen. When the suspect was apprehended for the most recent case, he was wearing the stolen shoes.

The suspect, Ronal Mardoqueo Montoya Lemus, 23, of Waldorf, was charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools, and other related charges. On November 7, a judge ordered Lemus could be released from the

Charles County Detention Center as along as he meets the conditions of electronic monitoring. Officer Knutsen is investigating.

  1. Keep voting for democrats you losers!
    Keep letting them in Joe!
    Keep our taxes high to pay for them!
    Trump was right!

    1. He lives in Waldorf. Looks like an American citizen. Reminder: the Republicans had control of the House, Senate, and Presidency from 2017 to 2019, and the Senate and Presidency from 2019 to 2021, and DID NOTHING on immigration reform, except steal your money and say it was for a wall, which it wasn’t.

        1. Thank you for your patience. The Biden-⁠Harris Administration Priorities: 1. COVID-19 2. Climate 3. Racial Equity 4. Economy 5. Health Care 6. Immigration 7. Restoring America’s Global Standing. Immigration is number number 6 on their list, and they have been in office less 2 years, and with a Senate that has been difficult to work with. We’ll see how he does with (hopefully) a more cooperative Senate.

          Trump- Pence: Focal points of Trump’s campaign included strengthening U.S. immigration laws, renegotiating or withdrawing from international trade deals, a more aggressive foreign policy in the Middle East, lowering taxes, and repealing financial and environmental regulations. Immigration was a highlight of their campaign, they had a favorable Senate and achieved nothing. Granted, immigration reform is hard, but Republicans/Trump don’t have any ‘immigration reform’ credibility, and should stop blaming Democrats. It’s hurting the Republican Party.

          1. And yet the states that border Mexico are dropping off illegal immigrants in the middle of dc, New York and so forth

            Biden and Harris have done absolutely zero

  2. Trump’s number one campaign subject was immigration reform and he had a favorable legislative environment for four years, while Biden has it #6 on his list of priorities, and has been in office in an unfavorable legislative environment for less than two years. And my comment addressed my concern about 1. a racist comment about someone living in Waldorf, and 2. The same comment blaming Biden for a lack of immigration reform. Thank you for waiting.
