Lexington Park man is charged in Calvert burglary
A judge in St. Mary’s ordered this week that Dallas Patrick Terry, 21, of Lexington Park remain in custody without bond on charging papers alleging he broke into a home in a gated community in Solomons and stole a jug holding about $1,800.
Terry was charged with third-degree burglary, a theft offense and property destruction through the investigation by Maryland State Police in Calvert County, filing court papers alleging that a balcony bedroom door was destroyed during the May 29 incident at Lowell Cade’s dwelling at Solomons Landing.
Police found shattered glass from the door scattered on the bedroom floor of the first-level residence, located about six feet above the ground, court papers state, and Cade told the law officers that the suspect was an acquaintance who recently had been hired to clean rugs at the home. Police viewed surveillance video at the condominium, talked with other community residents and examined trails in woods behind the housing area before obtaining the charges against the suspect.
Prince George’s man accused of burglary on Golden Beach Road
Donald Earl Walker, 30, of Aquasco was released from St. Mary’s jail this week on 10 percent of a $3,000 bond after his arrest on a charge of committing a third-degree burglary on Sunday at a house on Golden Beach Road.
Law officers responding that day to the vacant house met with Andrew Jeffery Windsor Buckler, who reported that some- one claiming to own the house drove away when Buckler said police were coming, according to a statement of probable cause filed by St. Mary’s sheriff’s deputy Dale Smith.
Walker later arrived at the sheriff’s office, where “he advised the house belongs to him, and has had it for 30 years,” court papers state, before the deputy’s “search of the Maryland real property website indicate[d] Janet Buckler, the victim’s elderly mother … is the property owner.”
Andrew Buckler told police that he had “boarded up the doors a few months ago,” court papers state, “and they are now ripped down.”
