Theft Arrest For Going Through Cars
OCEAN CITY — A Millsboro man was arrested on theft and drug possession charges last weekend after allegedly swiping credit cards and cash from a vehicle.
Around 2:24 p.m. last Sunday, an Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officer responded to the area of 8th Street and Baltimore Avenue for a report of a suspicious individual looking into vehicles. The suspect, later identified as Jaquan Adkins, 26, of Millsboro, approached the officer and pulled several credit cards and a driver’s license from his pocket and reportedly said, “Hey officer, I just found these credit cards lying on the road over there.”
After Adkins consented to a search, the officer found two small folded wax paper Baggies stamped with the phrase “new arrival” on them. According to police reports, Adkins told the officer, “That’s just heroin.” A further search revealed $118 in cash on Adkins’ person.
According to police reports, when told he was being taken into custody, Adkins asked the officer, “What, I’m being arrested for having two bags of heroin?” Adkins reportedly told police he had taken the credit cards and driver’s license from a car. The officer observed the credit cards had the victim’s name on them and one of the cards also included the name of a nearby business.
