Where do Future Criminals of America, while packing heat, go for Spring Break to get away the cops back home? Why, Ocean City, of course!
OCEAN CITY, MD – (March 25, 2016) – Like many teens in the DC area, the urge to travel to Ocean City for fun, surf and to visit with friends while robbing drug dealers is an allure not easily suppressed. Ocean City Police reports that one Montgomery County teenager found too much heat back in his hometown and decided it was time to beat feet. Police say he and his gang were captured as they cruised up Coastal Highway in their hot wheels.
The Ocean City Police Department report they arrested a 16-year-old male wanted by Montgomery County Police. Teris Declan McDonald, 16, of 1 Havilland Mill Road, Brookeville, Md., was wanted by the Montgomery County Police Department after he allegedly committed a burglary and stole a GMC pickup truck and two handguns on Tuesday, March 22.
Ocean City Police reports that on Wednesday, March 23, 2016, detectives from the Ocean City Police Department Criminal Investigation Division received information from the Montgomery County Police Department that McDonald was in Ocean City. Detectives conducted surveillance in the area and located the stolen vehicle traveling northbound on Coastal Highway in the area of 54th Street. Marked patrol officers responded and conducted a traffic stop on the 10 block of 63rd Street.
At that time, McDonald was taken into custody. Also, three passengers were arrested: Khiry Malik Hall, 19, of 62 South Jennings Road, Severna Park, Md., a 16-year-old male and a 14-year-old female of Severna Park. During a search of the vehicle, detectives located the two stolen handguns in the vehicle.
Hall is racking up a record sure to have him find favor when he goes to prison. He was arrested on theft and other charges in Anne Arundel County and entered a guilty plea on May 20, 2015, and put on probation. On Feb. 2, 2016, Hall managed to violate his probation and is set for a trial on that charge on April 5, 2016. If the Anne Arundel County States Attorney is using his computer, he might learn about this new arrest for motor vehicle theft by Ocean City Police.
Detectives have charged McDonald with motor vehicle theft and transporting a handgun, in addition to charges stemming from Montgomery County police. McDonald was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner, waived to adult status and transferred to the Worcester County Jail on $25,000 bond. Hall and the two juveniles were each charged with motor vehicle theft. Each were seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner. Hall was released on his own recognizance, and the juveniles were released to their parents, who deserved the little demons.
