ARREST IN GOLF CART THEFTS: Between November 10 and November 13 of this year, two burglaries were reported at the 231 Farm Center located in the 231 Industrial Park in Prince Frederick.
On November 10, two suspects fled with six motorized golf carts with a total value exceeding $35,000 and caused significant damage to two other items on the property totaling $6,911 in damage.
On November 13, the co-owner of the business observed two suspects on the 231 Farm Center lot via security footage and immediately contacted the Sheriff's Office. Patrol units from the Calvert County Sheriff's Office and Maryland State Police responded to the location in minutes and immediately established a sustained perimeter. It was believed that the suspects observed by the co-owner had been attempting to steal two additional carts which caused approximately $3,000 in damage. The quick response of police caused the suspects to flee the scene on foot. During the established perimeter the investigation and search was aided by Maryland State Police Aviation and Calvert County Sheriff's Office K-9.
The scene and surrounding area was secured as members of the Sheriff's Office Special Operations Team responded to the area to conduct additional canvases of the business and residential area to insure safety of the citizens in the area.
One suspect had been developed by investigators after the initial theft and shortly after the November 13 attempt, as units remained on the scene; this same suspect was observed in the area of the 231 Industrial Park traveling in a motor vehicle.
Units from the Calvert County Sheriff's Office, the Charles County Sheriff's Office, and Prince George's County Police made contact with the occupants of the vehicle, one identified as Daniel Matthew Proctor, 46 of Upper Marlboro. During that contact Proctor was found to be in possession in synthetic marijuana, a golf cart/recreational cart key, and other items. Investigation of the second suspect is ongoing.
Based on events related to the investigation, Proctor was arrested regarding the burglary and destruction of property at the 231 Farm Center on November 13.
Upon the apprehension of Proctor, leads were developed with the Charles County Sheriff's Office regarding the burglary that occurred at the 231 Farm Center on November 10.
Charles County was able to recover a motorized cart which was determined to be stolen from the 231 Farm Center on that date.
Proctor has been charged with two counts of 2nd degree burglary, two counts of 4th degree burglary, two counts of theft $10,000 to under $100,000, one count of theft scheme, two counts of malicious destruction of property above $1,000 and one count of drug possession.
Calvert Investigators are requesting the public to contact Det. N. DeFelice if they recently bought a golf cart that they believe could be related to this theft. Anyone with further information is asked to contact Det. DeFelice at 410-535-2800 on extension 2669.
