On December 21 at 2:22 a.m., officers responded to the 13100 block of Hickory Avenue in Waldorf for the report of an individual breaking into a car and rummaging through it. Upon arrival, officers observed a male sitting in a black Ford F150 nearby. As the officer approached, the driver accelerated and drove across the front yard of a house, and struck a utility pole. The driver jumped out of the truck and fled. A computer check revealed the truck was reported stolen in another county. A K9 team conducted a track along the area the suspect ran and recovered evidence. Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Barry at 301-932-2222. Tipsters who want to remain anonymous may contact Charles County Crime Solvers by calling 1-866-411-TIPS. Tips can also be submitted online at or by using the P3Intel mobile app. The investigation is continuing.
