OCEAN CITY, MD – (July 6, 2016) Ocean City Police report that they landed a gang of burglars from Pennsylvania in the hoosegow for allegedly breaking into a residence while the occupants were asleep and making off with thousands of dollars in property. Too bad an armed resident didn’t awake and blow these bozo burglars to the hell they truly deserve.

Police say that on Monday, July 4, 2016, at approximately 5:40 a.m. Ocean City police responded to a residence in the area of 12th Street and Dayton Lane in reference to a burglary. Residents of the unit awoke to find the unit in disarray and multiple personal items stolen. It was determined that over $3,500 in electronics, cash, and other miscellaneous items were stolen including one wallet.

During the investigation, officers learned that one of the victim’s credit cards was used at a restaurant in the resort. Officers obtained surveillance footage and eventually located the suspects in the area of 10th Street and Dayton Lane at approximately 1:20 p.m. that day.

During a search of the suspects’ vehicle, officers located several items reported stolen in the Dayton Lane burglary earlier that day, as well as additional items that were reported stolen during a separate theft incident. Officers also located a large amount of marijuana and paraphernalia.
