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.”

Ryan Michael Cay­wood, 30, of Me­chan­icsville was charged this week through a sum­mons with un­law­fully tak­ing a van last Satur­day from an ad­dress off New Mar­ket Turner Road near Me­chan­icsville.

Dur­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion that day, Kim­berly Collins said that the sus­pect, a nephew, did not have her con­sent to take the 2004 Dodge Car­a­van, court pa­pers state, and that when she called him, he replied, “I’m at work in Vir­ginia. Please don’t tell my dad, or call the cops.”

“The vic­tim told [po­lice that] she ad- vised the de­fen­dant to have her ve­hi­cle back in her drive­way by [Sun­day] af­ter­noon,” ac­cord­ing to a charges ap­pli­ca­tion filed later that day by sher­iff’s deputy Tyler West­phal. “The de­fen­dant did not re­ply to the vic­tim, and there has since been no com­mu­ni­ca­tion from the de­fen­dant.”
