DNA ev­i­dence leads to ar­rest of hol­ida rob­bery sus­pect

De­tec­tives of the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­cently ar­rested a sus­pect in con­nec­tion with a Christ­mas Day rob­bery af­ter DNA and other ev­i­dence linked the sus­pect to the crime.

On Dec. 25, 2015, at 9:52 p.m., a male sus­pect en­tered the 7-Eleven in the 300 block of Small­wood Drive in Wal­dorf. He poured a cup of cof­fee and then walked be­hind the counter where he dis­played a knife and held the em­ploy­ees at knife point. The sus­pect then or­dered an em­ployee to open the reg­is­ter and give him money. One of the em­ploy­ees ran into the of­fice and shut the door with the sus­pect in pur­suit. Af­ter be­ing un­able to get into the of­fice, the sus­pect fled the store on foot with­out get­ting any cur­rency and leav­ing be­hind phys­i­cal ev­i­dence. Foren­sic crime scene in­ves­ti­ga­tors re­cov­ered ev­i­dence which was submitted and an­a­lyzed by tech­ni­cians with the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Foren­sic Sci­ence Unit. DNA and la­tent prints led to the sus­pect’s iden­tity and on June 18, Wil­liam Thomas Chis­ley, Jr., 45, of La Plata, was ar­rested and charged with rob­bery. De­tec­tive C. Gre­gory in­ves­ti­gated.
