Southern Md. Police Beat:
Attention anti-gun nuts: what about machetes?
With all the hysteria from gun-grabbing liberals across America about their desire to suspend the Constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners, we have to wonder when they will add to their idiotic refrain about guns by restricting ownership of machetes, kitchen knives, and axes. In many news reports, there are incidents involving these weapons, which are readily available to mental cases ready, willing, and able to inflict injury and death…this report includes two such cases.
From St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron is this wrap-up of Christmas Day and the following few days of mayhem from the alleged heathens of the Mother County of Maryland:
Taylor ready to slice and dice with a machete
MORGANZA, MD. – St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron reports that on December 29, 2014, Deputy John Davis responded to a residence in the 28000 block of Point Lookout Road for a disturbance. The victim alleged suspect Lawrence Taylor JR, 49, of Morganza, approached the victim with a machete during an argument. Taylor also pushed a second victim inside the residence as the second victim attempted to intervene. Taylor was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. He was charged with 2 COUNTS of 1st Degree Assault.
Christmas Day assault left the victim in a reclining position
HOLLYWOOD, MD. – Plenty of assault victims get shoved downstairs, through windows and walls, and once in a while into wet concrete. But this is the first known crime report where a perp allegedly shoved a victim into a recliner. Police say that on December 25, 2014, deputies responded to a residence on Allston Lane in Hollywood to assist EMS. The victim alleged suspect Joshua Michael Stone, 31, of Hollywood, picked up then threw the victim into a recliner during an argument. The victim had a visible injury. Stone was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. He was charged with 2nd Degree Assault.
Christmas Day Knife Toss Came Before or After Opening the Presents?
HOLLYWOOD, MD. – Perhaps Bryan Douglas McDonald was simply rehearsing for his new magic act, which includes a knife toss at his lovely assistant on stage in Las Vegas. Or perhaps he was auditioning for Anger Management. Police say that on December 25, 2014, Deputy D. Smith responded to a residence on Thornbury Drive in Hollywood for a disturbance. The victim alleged suspect Bryan Douglas McDonald, 20, of Hollywood, grabbed 2 knives from the kitchen during an argument. The suspect then threw one of the knives at the victim. McDonald was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. He was charged with 1st Degree Assault.
Possible Illegal Aliens Caught Cleaning Out Farm of Metal in Christmas Day Crime in the Country
THOMPSON’S CORNER, MD. – It’s hard to get by on St. Mary’s Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Lee Somerville Jr., as he has been on the job for a long time. Sheriff Tim Cameron reports that Dep. Somerville smoked out a couple of polecats from PG County who were cleaning out a farm of various implements. Others in the area who have been victims of similar crimes should call the Sheriff’s Department.
Police say that on December 25, 2014, Corporal J. Somerville responded to the Clover Hill Dairy located on Woodburn Hill Road in Mechanicsville for a theft in progress. The complainant reported two male suspects loading several pieces of equipment (electric motors, 12-foot steel pipe, small assorted pieces of steel), into a utility trailer being towed by a red Nissan pickup. Corporal Somerville located the vehicle while responding to the call. The suspects were identified as Hugo Armando Lopez-Najera, 32, of Hyattsville, and Mynor Humberto Reyes-Lopez, 22, of Hyattsville. The same two suspects also stole materials from the same business on December 22, 2014. Both suspects were placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center.
Both were charged with Theft Under $1,000, Theft Under $100 and Theft Scheme Under $1,000.
On the 2nd Day of Christmas, it was choking and a kick in the ribs by Rajahn, say cops.
ASSAULT – On December 26, 2014, Deputy Steinbach responded to a residence on Eastwick Lane in Leonardtown for a conservator of the peace. On arrival, the victim alleged suspect Rajahn Delmon Hampton, 35, of Leonardtown, strangled and kicked the victim in the ribs during an argument over the use of a vehicle. The victim had visible injuries from the assault. Hampton was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. He was charged with 2nd Degree Assault.
Get your ugly, yellow, no-good keister off my property, before I pump your guts full o’ lead!
CLEMENTS, MD. – Perhaps the alleged suspect, in this case, had watched one too many showings of Home Alone, Home Alone 2, or Home Alone 3 prior to having an unwanted visitor to his property. It sounds like he was within his rights to order the “victim” off his property, but the assault with the gun took things to a different level. Police report that on December 26, 2014, Deputy McCuen responded to a residence in the 28000 block of Point Lookout Road for a reported assault. The victim alleged he went to a residence on Horseshoe Road in Clements to pick up a friend. The victim stayed in the car while another subject went to the residence. While the victim was sitting in the car suspect Donald Earl Phares, 38, of Clements, approached the driver’s window with what the victim believed was a gun and ordered the victim to open the door. When the victim opened the car door Phares stuck the gun into the victim’s side and told him to leave the property. Phares then pointed the gun away from the victim and toward the ground before firing off a round. Phares was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. He was charged with 1st Degree Assault, 2nd Degree Assault, and Reckless Endangerment.
The good news is that Moore can get more tats in prison
CALLAWAY, MD.– Police say that on December 27, 2014, Deputy Steinbach responded to a residence on Leesa Court, for an assault. Four (4) victims alleged suspect Charles Timothy Moore, 33, of Lexington Park, followed them in his vehicle after they left the scene of a fight in Callaway.
The victims had left operating a Ford Taurus when they believed Moore was following them in a Chevrolet Tahoe traveling southbound on Point Lookout Road. The driver alleged Moore drove into the northbound lanes in an attempt to run the victim’s vehicle off of the road. Moore continued to chase the victim’s vehicle. Deputies subsequently saw Moore in his vehicle pull out from Take It Easy Ranch Lane onto Piney Point Road at a high rate of speed after the victim’s vehicle. Deputies stopped Moore and placed him under arrest. Moore was charged with 4 COUNTS of 1st Degree Assault and 4 COUNTS of 2nd Degree Assault.
