Two More Armed Robberies on Great Mills Road Last Night

November 14, 2017

Suspect Pointed Gun to Head of Employee

On Monday, November 13, 2017, at approximately 7:35 p.m., Deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and Troopers from the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barrack responded to the El Rinconcito Mexican Restaurant, at 21703 Great Mills Road, in Lexington Park, for the report of an armed robbery.

Employees said a black male in a grey hoodie entered the restaurant, pointed a gun at an employee and demanded money. The gunman was last seen running off on towards the AMC Loews Lexington Park 6, Movie Theater.

While investigating the El Rinconcito armed robbery, police learned that prior to that robbery a suspect matching the same description put a gun to the head of an employee at the Sake Japanese Seafood & Steak House, at 21719 Great Mills Road, in Lexington Park, and attempted to rob them.

It is unknown what was stolen in both robberies.

There has been no mention of the armed robberies on the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Lexington Park COPs Unit Facebook page, and the Sheriff’s Office has not released a press release on any of the robberies to the public at this time.

    When this guy finally gets shot there will be a riot on their hands.

    Is it just me or do all the suspects have something in common? I can’t quite place my finger on it. Hmmm…

      Or maybe its all the same suspect possibly? Your thinly veiled statement is ignorant until all the facts are provided.

    My heart goes out to these business owners and employees, particularly for Sake which I frequent. May the Lord bring the culprit to justice.

    I hope that gun misfires and blows that POS crooks face off. Crooks are worthless trash and the community would be better off without them.

    This guy is making a fool of the SMCS department. That’s like 5 armed robberies, in the last week, within a half mile radius!!

    Just the beginning folk. The County Commission has allowed this place to fester for twenty years. Need clean out the section eights and the vagrants off the streets. Put motion detectors on the parks and keep them clean at night. Install sniper detectors so gun shots can be pinpointed to ten feet. Fix the courts so we don’t have a revolving door incarceration system.

      Alice you are 100% correct.Why the county doesnt see and understand this is crazy.The judges dont give people jail time anymore either.

      And what does section 8 housing have to with it?

      • Adam 12 on November 16, 2017 at 8:24 am

        Statistics show everywhere there is a plethora of low income housing, there is a high crime rate. Facts don’t lie.

    • Anonymous on November 15, 2017 at 5:03 pm

      You mean the section 8 people who don’t contribute anything to society but crime and nonsense? Everybody on section 8 isn’t an armed robber, thug or drug dealer and it would be stupid to assume such a thing. Some people on section 8 pay taxes, work for a living and abide by the law because they want to do good or better in life. The ones who do cause trouble, destroy communities and contribute nothing good to the community should be locked up for decades or sterilized and deported from the country.

      • Adam 12 on November 16, 2017 at 8:29 am

        Agreed. The low income community needs to come together and root out the turds. That means calling the police and telling the police what you saw. Sadly, many in those neighborhoods refuse to cooperate with law enforcement then get mad when the “police don’t do nothing.”

    Ya think maybe someone working in the interest of the Chamber of commerce doesn’t want to scare folks who might want to go out dinner in those areas?

    It’s only a matter of time before someone opens their mouth. People can’t stay quiet for long.
