Two armed robberies of stores in two days in Sin City

LEXINGTON PARK, MD. – Two days, two armed robberies and in neither robbery did St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron release video or photos from the robberies or provide a description of the suspect. A description of an armed robber or photo is typically used to help solicit leads and tips from the public and capture a criminal.

These latest robberies took place after an armed robbery of the Family Dollar across the street from the Papa Johns.  Sheriff Cameron established a special team of deputies two years ago to escort hookers and hobos off the streets in Lexington Park to the Hotel St. Mary’s. 

Cameron reports that on Oct. 20, 2015 the Sign of the Whale liquors was robbed at gunpoint and , at 11:18 p.m. St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies responded to the Sign of the Whale on Three Notch Road (Rt. 235), one block from the main gate (gate 2) of the Patuxent River Naval Air Station) in Lexington Park, for the report of an armed robbery.
