As published on THE BAYNET.COM: "On December 13, 2012 the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office received information regarding several local Facebook posting concerning a suspicious, mid-size, Budget Rental truck operating in the Louis Bailey Road Avenue, Maryland area. It was alleged that on December 12, 2012 at approximately 5:00 p.m. the operator of the truck was driving slowly throughout neighborhoods, pulling into and out of several driveways. The Facebook postings also indicated that, at one point, the driver stopped a woman and made an inappropriate comment. Deputies responded to the area to attempt to locate the truck and driver. On December 13, 2012 at approximately 4:35 p.m. the vehicle was located and stopped on Route 234 near the St. Mary’s County line. The operator was identified through his Maryland driver’s license. Further investigation revealed and confirmed, through employee identification, that the operator of the truck was driver/employee of FEDEX. Deputies contacted FEDEX and spoke with a supervisor and explained the situation. The supervisor verified FEDEX does use Budget trucks and seasonal employees for holiday deliveries. The FEDEX employee was assigned to the Colton’s Point area to deliver packages. The driver produced an electronic log verifying he has been in the Louis Bailey Road area making deliveries. The driver explained he pulls into driveways to deliver packages and update his electronic log prior to traveling to the next scheduled delivery location. The driver stated he did not place the FEDEX magnets on his truck because he was sure of Maryland’s law regarding the placement of the magnets on vehicles. The driver was in possession and produced the FEDEX magnets for the truck. Deputies were permitted to search the cargo area of the vehicle. Deputies observed children's toys sealed in boxes for delivery. Deputies were not able to substantiate the in appropriate comment complaint. Based on the investigation it was determined that there was no probable cause of a crime. The driver was told to place the FEDEX magnets on his truck so citizens would he aware the truck was a delivery vehicle. An Incident Report was completed and the driver was sent on his way. Social media is a very effective tool to transmit information, however; the Sheriff’s Office would like to remind citizen’s that social media is not the proper venue to report suspicious activity or crimes. Suspicious activity and crimes should be reported directly to the police to assure immediate response and follow up".
