Standoff ends in Calvert County

By Henri Cauvin


Update, 11:44 p.m.:

A man who was locked in a standoff with police in Calvert County was taken into custody late Thursday night after police used tear gas to force the man from his home in Lusby, the county sheriff’s office said.

The man, who police believe may be a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, was alone in the house and was believed to have weapons, Lt. Steven Jones of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office said.

After being taken into custody, the man was to be taken for medical and mental health evaluations, Jones said.

The standoff began shortly after 8 p.m. at the house, near Saugaro Court and Crazy Horse Trail in the Ranch Club Estates community, Jones said.

Officers from the sheriff’s office SWAT team assembled outside the home, and police contacted nearby residents to warn them to remain in their homes until the situation was resolved, Jones said.

It was relatives of the man who had called police to the house, Jones said, and officers were on the scene by shortly after 8 p.m. For about three hours, the man, whose name was not immediately released, held the authorities at bay.

This story has been updated.

Chesapeake Ranch Estates (misidentified as Ranch Club Estates in the article)/Lusby is the armpit of Calvert County. This is the same community where they found two little girls in the freezer and the third grossly abused. Realtors can't sell houses there because of the environment although some of those homes are really quite nice. It has gone way downhill in recent years.

Unfortunately, it is quite possible that we will see more of this type of behaviour. Our returning veterans need continuing support even after they transition out of uniform.
