Record Observer - - News -

KENT IS­LAND — The Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice is in­ves­ti­gat­ing mul­ti­ple sus­pi­cious per­sons re­ports stem­ming from a Satur­day, June 10, com­plaint about a mid­dle aged man who al­legedly ap­proached chil­dren in the Clover­fields com­mu­nity on Kent Is­land.

The Sher­iff’s Of­fice is con­duct­ing in­ter­views of the com­plainants and wit­nesses to ver­ify ac­counts, ac­cord­ing to a post on its Face­book page.

A re­port was filed stat­ing an uniden­ti­fied white male ap­proached chil­dren and at­tempted to sell so­das for a fundraiser, in­sist­ing the chil­dren go with him to his home on Kim­berly Court at an un­known ad­dress. The man was de­scribed as about 50 years old, wear­ing a black Un­der Ar­mour polo shirt, and driv­ing a dark blue pickup with tinted win­dows, po­lice said.

When the wit­ness who filed the re­port made his pres­ence known, the man re­port­edly left the area.

Mul­ti­ple re­ports de­scribe peo­ple and ve­hi­cles watch­ing or ap­proach­ing chil­dren pos­si­bly in the Clover­fields com­mu­nity, Perry’s Cor­ner Road and in the Prospect Bay com­mu­nity, the post states.

On June 3, the Hur­lock Po­lice De­part­ment in Dorch­ester County be­gan in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port of a sus­pi­cious per­son near a Hur­lock base­ball field com­plex, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. A com­plaint about the in­ci­dent de­scribed a ma­roon or bur­gundy pickup truck tried to block a group of chil­dren play­ing on Charles Street as they at­tempted to leave the scene, the state­ment said.

Po­lice said the truck, driven by an uniden­ti­fied white male with a beard, was pos­si­bly a Chevro­let that had a cap on the bed of the ve­hi­cle.

A com­plaint was filed after the chil­dren reached com­mu­nity mem­bers who helped call the po­lice.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing if the in­ci­dents are re­lated.

The Cen­tre­ville Po­lice De­part­ment has not re­ceived any com­plaints of sus­pi­cious per­sons, Lt. Kenny Rhodes said.
