Frederick County Grand Jury Returns Five Indictments

These cases now go to Circuit Court where trial dates will be scheduled.

Frederick, Md (KM) Members of the Frederick County Grand Jury returned five indictments on Friday.

The panel charged Otagwyn Sengbe Kambon, 30, of Frederick home invasion, two counts of armed robbery, possession of a firearm with a felony conviction, illegal possession of a regulated firearm, and two counts each of 1st- and 2nd-degree assault,  and reckless endangerment.

State’s Attorney Charlie Smith says in June 28th, 2021, Frederick Police Officers responded to the 1800 block of Green Spring Place for a home invasion robbery. “When they got there, Kambon is one of two individuals that allegedly approached this house, posing as actually package deliverer–they were weaning all black with gloves. They wind up putting on a mask, forced their way into a home when the door was opened, brandished handgun,” he says.

The Grand Jury also indicted a New Market man, Charles Patrick Garzone, 35, for two counts each of sex abuse of a minor, 2nd-degree rape and 3rd-degree sex offense for a series of incidents between August 7th and August 21st. “This come from a forensic interview at our child advocacy center, ” says Smith. “Very unfortunate allegation.”

Joseph Cameron, 43, and Eugene Dishee Woodson, 27, both of Frederick, are charged as co-defendants with numerous drug offenses, and being a common nuisance. “Frederick City Police executed a search warrant at 1092 Greenwall Place  in Frederick. This happened in August of this year. When they got in there, they located evidence of a major crack cocaine manufacturing, packaging and distribution ring,” says Smith.

In another indictment, Shaquan Kasha Lipscomb, 25, was charged with  firearms offenses, resisting and interfering with an arrest,  and obstructing and hindering. Smith says on November 2nd, Frederick County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Uppermill Terrace in Frederick for a burglary in progress. Upon arrival, they found Lipscomb and another man identified as Anthony Cartnail. “They were standing outside of the residence. Cartnail had keys and he appeared to be trying to enter the home,” he says. “Deputies got there, actually held them at gunpoint because they were uncooperative. They began to then resist arrest when they attempted to cuff ’em. A handgun was found on their person. Of course, the defendant is prohibited from possessing them because he has a prior felony conviction.”

These indictments move these cases to Circuit Court, where   trial dates will be scheduled with 180 days, says Smith.

Prosecutors say indictments are documents alleging criminal behavior, and all defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
