Charles County Sheriff’s officers are seeking the public’s help in locating Earl Benjamin Washington, Jr., 46, of Lexington Park, MD who is wanted in connection with making several threats of mass violence. On May 24, Washington called a business in White Plains and Gale-Bailey Elementary School and made several threats of mass violence.
