Any member of the Sheriff’s Office that decides to participate will be required to make a $30 donation to support cancer research. To show their support for the cause, current police academy recruits will be doing one squat for every $1 raised, up to $1,000. They will also be making a donation as a class. In 2017, a total of 82 members of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office raised $2,530.00 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

“Deputies & Students Join Forces To Take Down Known Sex Offender From Wisconsin” In late September 2018 a female student at Manchester Valley High School reported to School Administration that someone had been contacting her through Snapchat, a social media application, requesting that she send explicit photographs of herself to him. Administrators involved the on-duty School Resource Officer (SRO), Deputy Kyle Barget, who determined several students had received similar requests. The individual sending the requests identified themselves as a local student but would not reveal their name. Deputy Barget then contacted the Carroll County Child Advocacy and Investigation Center (CCAIC). Detective Jill Bankard with CCAIC was able to identify the owner of the Snapchat account from which the messages originated and traced that individual to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Sheriff’s Detectives contacted local authorities in Wisconsin who continued investigating the allegations. Detectives in Wisconsin were able to obtain a search warrant for the suspect’s home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. On October 25, 2018 the search warrant was executed. Detectives recovered significant amounts of child pornography and arrested David A. Drummond, a 35 year old male from the City of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin who is a registered sex offender. Drummond was charged in Wisconsin with (10 counts) possession of child pornography, (3 counts) solicitation of child pornography from juvenile victims from Maryland, and (1 count) violating his terms of sex offender registration. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges could be placed against Drummond in Wisconsin. No charges are expected to be placed in Maryland. “The positive relationships the SRO’s have with school administration, staff and students resulted in the quick identification and arrest of the suspect,” said Sheriff James DeWees. Dr. Steven Lockard, Superintendent of Carroll County Public Schools said, “We appreciate the support of the SRO’s and the Sheriff’s Office. The successful resolution of this issue is just one positive example of what can be accomplished when our schools and our Sheriff’s Office work together in the best interest of our students.” Students and parents should be aware of the important fact that the suspect posed as a student. Be cautious when communicating with people you don’t know in person, especially if the conversation starts to be about sex or physical details. If they are suspicious or persist, notify a parent, school staff or call the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office at 410-386-5900.
