CID and Patrol Make Arrests in Wicomico Shores Vandalism
Between March and June of 2014, the Wicomico Shores neighborhood experienced a rash of what appeared to be related property destruction/vandalism offenses. Suspects damaged the newly built pavilion, bath house, and public docks at the Wicomico Shores Park/boat dock area. Several vehicles were scratched or "keyed" or their tires punctured. Publicly owned property was spray painted or "tagged" throughout the community and extensive damage was done to the Wicomico Shores golf Course. The interior of a home in the neighborhood was also tagged and destroyed.
Patrol deputies took numerous reports for these crimes. As a result, Detective Corporal David Alexander from the Criminal Investigations Division and Deputy Amber Logue from the Patrol Division consolidated all of these cases and began an in-depth investigation. After compiling information and examining all evidence, they were able to positively identify nine suspects believed to be responsible for these crimes with varying levels of involvement. Each suspect was subsequently interviewed and additional evidence of their participation in these crimes was obtained. The residence in the neighborhood which was tagged and destroyed was identified as a "club house" used by the group.
