The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying robbery suspects.

At 9:13 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, the Calvert Control Center received a 911 call from a store cashier at Bridge Carryout, at 6654 Hallowing Point Road in Prince Frederick, stating that the store had just been robbed, according to a sheriff’s office press release.

Deputies responded to the scene and set up a perimeter, the press release states, while contact was made with the complainant.

Deputies determined two suspects were involved. One is a white man, early to mid-20s, about 5-feet, 9-inches tall with a shaved head and dark facial hair. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a camouflage hat and a black and camouflage T-shirt. The other is “of unknown race, age or sex” and was wearing a royal blue bandana across the face, the press release states.

One suspect entered the store at about 9:06 p.m. and asked what time the store closed. He then made casual conversation with the cashier while he bought and played scratch off tickets, deputies said. He then left the store without incident.

At about 9:10 p.m., the same man re-entered the store and stood near the checkout counter. The second suspect entered the store and demanded the cashier hand over money. The second suspect gave the cashier a bag, at which time the cashier filled it with money from two registers, and the two suspects fled the store.

A K-9 track was conducted by Dfc. Morder and his K-9 partner, Wolf, which led to the rear of the business. The track continued west toward a fenced-in area just prior to Hallowing Point Trailer Park, according to a press release. Morder identified a recently broken portion of the fence, which led to a gravel parking lot near the trailer park.

A witness who was in the area said she saw a white BMW or Mercedes, which was parked in the area of the track, leave the area following the robbery.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. DeFelice at 410-1600, ext. 2669.
