Detective Asking for HELP to Solve ROBBERY - King Drive

Mechanicsville, Maryland - On September 15, 2014 at 1:28 AM, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office patrol units responded to a private residence on King Drive, for a reported burglary which had just occurred.  Deputies determined two black male suspects, dressed in all dark clothing and wearing face masks, forced entry to the residence.  Both suspects were armed with handguns and ordered the occupants of the residence to the floor.  They demanded to know where specific items were located within the residence.  After being unable to locate the requested items the suspects fled the residence on foot.

The Criminal Investigations Division assumed the investigation and is asking anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Detective Corporal Scott Ruest at 301.475.4200 X 2297.  Callers can also remain anonymous by calling CRIME SOLVERS at (301) 475-3333, or by texting their tips to “TIP239” plus your message to “CRIMES” (274637).


  1. Why is Town Creek development not mentioned? That is where this occurred, as well as the burglary a couple of weeks ago where the older lady and her caretaker were tied up and burglarized. Is there a trend going on here? If so, the public needs to be aware.

  2. This did not occur in Town Creek. We arrested all 3 suspects in that case (see previous posts on this site). This is an entirely different crime Cindy. It occurred on King Drive in Mechanicsville.

  3. Thank you for the info. It looks like the article is up-to-date and correct now.
