The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous calls from local businesses in reference to two women walking out without paying their bill. The women will enter a local restaurant or bar, order food and drink for several hours. They order take-out food and tell the server they are stepping out to smoke a cigarette while they are waiting on their husbands. The women leave without paying their tab.
If anyone has any information into the identity of these women please contact Det. Mudd with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations at 410-535-1600 ext. 2469 or email at Michael.Mudd@calvertcountymd.gov.
