On March 19, 2018, President Jordan sent an all-student email updating campus community members on the case facts from the armed robbery incident which occurred in February. The incident in question was an armed robbery carried out by four students on a fifth student. All students involved in the incident are banned from returning to campus.
At the time of the incident, the College sent a safety update stating that there had been a report of a handgun on campus. The March 19 update indicated that the weapon used in the robbery was actually a BB gun bearing the likeness to a real gun, which is still in violation of the College’s Code of Conduct.
The Sheriff’s Office uncovered and removed the BB gun in the reported location on campus.
The email also stated that “one of the four suspects was charged with two misdemeanors and released on personal recognizance awaiting trial.
Two suspects remain in police custody, facing charges in the St. Mary’s County Circuit Court. The fourth suspect had a preliminary hearing on March 14, was charged with two misdemeanors, and released on personal recognizance awaiting trial.”
