Wicomico Sheriff Police Beat / Convicted burglar Bradley Alexander decided to skip facing the Judge on new burglary raps
SALISBURY, MD. — DIRTBAG ROUNDUP- Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis reports that on May 30, 2017, at 1:31 PM, a deputy arrested Bradley Michael Alexander, 30, of Salisbury, Md., on two outstanding Circuit Court Bench Warrants at 4610 Pheasant Drive, Salisbury, Md.
The warrants were issued after Alexander failed to appear for two cases where he had been charged with Burglary 1st Degree.
The deputy transported Alexander to the Detention Center where he was detained without bond pending an appearance in front of a Circuit Court Judge.
Alexander has three free attorneys provided by taxpayers to defend him in Wicomico County Circuit Court.
A charge of theft was placed against Alexander on Sept. 26, 2016, by Salisbury City Police Officer Englebrecht. Taxpayer provided free attorneys are representing the alleged burglar on that case.
Alexander entered a guilty plea in a plea deal with the Wicomico States Attorney on Aug. 6, 2010, to one count of third-degree burglary. THE DEAL: Three years in prison for crimes committed in 2006 but not resolved in court until 2010.
All other counts of burglary were dropped in the deal. Credit was given for 71 days of time served and work release was allowed, which comes in handy for burglars.
Alexander entered a guilty plea to drug possession charges placed by Salisbury Police Officers Hudson and King on Jan. 9, 2006, in a deal with the Wicomico States Attorney on Aug. 6, 2010, and a charge of dealing drugs was dropped as part of the deal with the prosecutor. In return for the guilty plea and the prosecutor not having to put on a trial with all that work, Alexander received a sentence of 18 months in the local jail and avoided going to prison.
She’s never too old to pop pills; pleaded guilty to prior DUI
DELMAR, MD. — Wicomico Sheriff Mike Lewis reports that on May 31, 2017, at 2:35 PM Deputy Chase stopped a vehicle operated by Arlene Wheatley, 55, of 28481 Delmar, Md., on Ocean Highway at Chestnut Street, after the deputy observed that Wheatley was not wearing a seat belt.
Police say that after developing reasonable suspicion of drug activity, the deputy received consent from Wheatley to search the vehicle. During that search, the deputy located pills that were identified as Oxycodone Hydrochloride, Acetaminophen, and Lorazepam. Wheatley did not have a prescription for any of these pills. Also located was a cut straw with residue suspected to be from the pills.
The deputy transported Wheatley to the Central Booking Unit where she was processed and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner. Following an initial appearance, the Commissioner released Wheatley on Personal Recognizance.
Wheatley was charged with several counts of DUI and negligent driving on Dec. 4, 2009, by Wicomico Sheriff’s Deputy Parker. Wheatley entered an Alford Plea on March 24, 2010, and was given six months in jail with all but ten days suspended. Probation for one year was included in the deal. The court directed the Warden of the Jail not to allow Wheatley any work release pending further Order of the Court.
