Montgomery County Police Officer Receives Award

On April 20, Mid – Atlantic Association of Women in Law Enforcement (MAAWLE) presented Montgomery County Police Officer Carrie Glascock with the Trooper Jessica Chaney Spirit Award.  The award is presented to a law enforcement professional with five (5) years or less of service, who has excelled during her short tenure and embodies the spirit of Trooper Jessica Cheney.

Officer Glascock, who is currently assigned to the 3rd District, was presented the award during MAAWLE’s annual conference in Ocean City, Maryland.  Although her career with Montgomery County Police has just started, Officer Glascock has already made an impact on the community she serves.  While still in field training, she fingerprinted several stolen vehicles, identifying suspects tied to multiple auto-theft cases.  She completed several search warrants related to a prostitution and drug case, leading to a network of drug trafficking and prostitution.  Her efforts help build a solid case against a career criminal.

Due to her hard work, in April 2014 Officer Glascock was awarded the Officer of the Month in the 3rd District.  She is trained as a shift evidence technican enabling her to help process various kinds of crime scenes.  Sergeant Brian Parker, Officer Glascock’s supervisor, stated in the nomination paperwork, “There is no doubt she exhibits the best qualities of a law enforcement professional and every member of the public is safer because of it.”

MCP would like to congratulate Officer Glascock on this award and we look forward to her having a long and successful career with the department.

For several hours, 102 searchers, including thirteen K9 teams, three boats, seven horses, five all-terrain vehicles, and ground teams worked in covering 600 acres, seven miles of roadside searching and railroad tracks, and completed a side sonar scan around Little Seneca Lake.  Several areas from the original search area were rechecked.  Although nothing significant was found, MCP will continue to search for Sarah and Jacob.  We greatly appreciate the assistance from outside agencies and the trained civilian volunteers.

Detectives Investigate Commercial Robbery in Four Corners Area of Silver Spring

Detectives from Montgomery County Police-Major Crimes Division are investigating a commercial robbery that took place this morning in the Four Corners area of Silver Spring.

At 6:35 a.m., the Emergency Call Center received a call for an armed robbery that had just occurred at the Shell Gas Station located at 100 University Boulevard West in Four Corners.  Officers from the 3rd District responded and found an adult male victim with an injury to the head.

The preliminary investigation reveals the suspect entered the business and produced a handgun.  During the course of the robbery, the suspect struck the victim on the head with the handgun.  He was last seen fleeing on foot to the right of the gas station after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officers and K9 units began a search of the area for the suspect.  Due to the proximity of the scene to Blair High School, officers responded to the school and coordinated with school administration to limit access to the school.  As students and staff sheltered in place, officers conducted a thorough search of the building.  The shelter in place order was lifted at approximately 10 a.m.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or white male, between 5’08” and 5’09”, wearing black pants and a black jacket, and armed with a black handgun.  During the robbery he concealed his face.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call Major Crimes at 240-773-5070 or Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).  Callers can remain anonymous.
