October 19, 2017

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of the persons pictured.

On Saturday, October 14, 2017 at approximately 9:00 p.m., the suspects entered the Lexington Villiage Wine & Spirits store located at 46400 Lexington Way #103, California, and split up. Suspect #2 gained the clerks attention when he dropped a bottle of liquor on the floor while trying to place it in his clothing. Seeing that the clerk was occupied with dealing with suspect #2, suspect #1 took a bottle of liquor from behind the counter, placed it in his blue vest and exited the store. The clerk then locked the door to prevent suspect #2 from leaving and confronted him to recover the stolen bottles. Suspect #2 threatened that he had a gun and a struggle ensued during which the hidden bottles of liquor fell out of the suspects clothing. Suspect #2 then escaped when the clerk unlocked the door.
