On May 15, 2013 at approximately 1:30 a.m. Ocean City Police responded to the 8800 block of Rusty Anchor Road, in reference to a citizen report of three males tampering with parked cars. When officers arrived in the area, they observed two males tampering with parked cars by trying door handles to see if the vehicles were unlocked.
Officers confronted the two suspects at which point one of the suspects fled from police. When officers attempted to subdue the suspect later identified as Harry Gardner Holmes, III, 25 of Clarksburg, MD, Holmes assaulted an officer. Holmes was subdued and subsequently arrested by an officer equipped with an Electronic Control Device (ECD/Taser). The second suspect, who was identified as Christopher Ryan Holmes, 22, of Clarksburg, MD, was taken into custody without incident. During the on scene investigation police determined the two suspects are brothers and staying in the 94th Street area. Officers located several witnesses and victims and determined the suspects had gained entry to at least two vehicles.
Per OCPD procedure H. Holmes was treated by OC EMS and transported to Atlantic General Medical Center for treatment after being subdued by an ECD/Taser. He was released from the AGH and transported by officers to the Ocean City Public Safety Building.
