Six arrested for breaking into Charles County cars

Josh White

A rash of broken car windows in several Charles County neighborhoods last week led patrol officers to arrest six teenagers they say were trying to steal stereos and other items.

Patrol officers with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office began learning of the attempted thefts at about 2:45 a.m. on Friday when they were called to the area of Homestead Place in Waldorf.

Witnesses told the officers that they had seen a group of people break the front passenger window out of a car and attempt to steal a stereo. The suspects fled when the car’s alarm sounded.

Officers then discovered several other reports of broken car windows in the area of Huntington Ridge, Orangeman Square and Amber Leaf Place, and witnesses all gave a similar description of the vehicle the suspects were driving.

Officers then spotted the suspects’ car near Route 205 and Route 301, stopped the car, and found evidence linking the suspects to the crimes.

Six suspects were arrested: Randolph Richardson, 19, of Waldorf; Ronald Harrigan, 18, Dale Anthony Seaton, 18, and three 17-year-old boys from the District. All of the suspects were charged with malicious destruction of property.

This happened at 2:45 a.m. They had already finished with their after school jobs and were just killing time before their morning university classes started. Wink Wink.

Another great job by the Charles County Sheriff's department!

If your son looks like two of the these "fine young citizens", then you should seriously acknowledge that you failed as a parent. If you do not see a problem with this then you are part of the problem.

I am sick of these guttersnipes... they are single handedly destroying what ever image of black teens are prevalent today, deservingly so.

Yes i am an african american male and i see no future for these kids... doomed from birth.

I'm sure they know what 4x4 is and what a subject or predicate is. It's just a "one time thing." The judge will let them roam around and do more. Stop having kids if you can't raise them properly.

Do people really get away with stealing car stereos in the 21st century? As criminals go, these guys seem pretty dumb to me.

Those aged 18-20 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. The writer of this article broke that rule by calling the young men arrested "teens". It's good that the young men and boys have been arrested for carjacking and for damaging cars.
