On May 31, 2023, Deputy Joseph Senatore observed an equipment violation and stopped a Dodge pickup truck at the 21800 block of Three Notch Road in Lexington Park. During the traffic stop, Deputy Senatore immediately observed a black handgun with an extended magazine stuffed between the passenger seat and center console, within reach of the passenger.

Investigation determined the firearm to be a Glock 23C, a .40-caliber regulated firearm with an extended 22-round magazine, which contained numerous live .40-caliber bullets. The extended magazine was loaded in the firearm.

Upon a search of the vehicle, another 22-round extended magazine with live bullets was located in the passenger side door panel. A Smith and Wesson Walther .22-caliber regulated firearm was located in a black bookbag on the passenger side floorboard as well as two 10-round magazines containing numerous bullets. The magazines were not loaded into the gun.

Both men were arrested and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Leonardtown. Both men posted personal bond and were released on May 31, 2023.

Just sneakin' around....
"both men posted bond". Wonder if they posted it themselves since they weren't local. If so... that's a bunch of cash to be carrying. Do they take credit cards? :lol:

Cops upset Chevis so bad it gave him Forest Whitaker eye.

You might think a day or two in jail, maybe some interviews to see what they might have been doing running around with two illegally owned firearms? Time to aks the local scumbag informants if maybe they know why these guys were in town? Screw it, just turn'em loose.
