Dodge City Update: Sydney Strain charged in Lexington Park gunfire rampage

Sydney Strain Charged with Lexington Park Gunfire Rampage

LEXINGTON PARK, MD. – St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron reports the arrest of local thug Sydney Strain, the second suspect in the gangland style series of shootings which had the Lexington Park area on pins and needles for several days. While Sydney is a really sissy name for an aspiring hoodlum, his street cred for allegedly being involved in a series of shooting may result in him being able to obtain a new nickname if and when he goes into the Maryland prison system. Maybe he will be able to get good nickname like “Spike” or “Fifty-Nine Cents” or even “Ghetto-Blaster”!

The wild-west Anacostia and Baltimore ghetto-type of shootings resulted in the deployment of most of the Sheriff’s Department into the Great Mills, California and Lexington Park communities for several days.
