Charlotte Hall, MD — The St. Mary’s County Sheriff provided an update on an animal cruelty investigation on Thursday.

Coffee and questions were on the menu when St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron met with citizens. The Coffee with the Sheriff event was held at the Northern Senior Activity Center in Charlotte Hall. 

Sheriff Cameron answered numerous questions about citizen concerns. He provided an update on a case that’s drawn the the attention of many people in the area, the decapitation of two black labs found back in July in Mechanicsville.

“We’re still pursuing this case the best we can. It’s not a case that we’re going to let go,” Sheriff Cameron told the group. “It’s scary to me that someone could do that to an animal. Cutting the heads off, that’s truly psychopathic.”
