Deputies Seize Machine Gun while Serving Peace Orders

Upper Marlboro, MD…The Domestic Violence Intervention Division (DVID) seized a Machine Gun while serving two Peace Orders at a residence in the 1000 block of Balboa Avenue in Capitol Heights, MD. The gun is a Ruger TEC-9 with an extended magazine, containing 23, 9mm bullets.

Deputies arrested and charged James Doby with First Degree Assault and Firearm Possession by a Convicted Felon. The Peace Order was filed against an unidentified male who is alleged to have threatened the Petitioner.  

When deputies arrived at the residence on Wednesday, January 8th, three individuals ran out of the home advising deputies that James Doby, who was inside of the home, had pointed a black gun described as an “Uzi” at them and demanded that they talk to him.

James Doby was detained after he attempted to leave the home through a basement door. He was taken into custody without further incident.

James Doby faces additional charges.

For more information contact the Communications and Public Affairs Division at 301-780-7354.
