OCEAN CITY — Two men were arrested last week after video surveillance footage connected them to the burglary of a Boardwalk ice cream parlor.
On June 15, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officers responded to the area of 12th Street and the Boardwalk for a reported burglary of an ice cream shop. The store owner told police his shop had been burglarized sometime between 12:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. and several items had been stolen including a safe with roughly a week’s worth of sales in it. The store owner also advised police he had video surveillance of the suspects.
The OCPD detective watched the video surveillance and observed two men later identified as Joshua Skidmore, 19, and Troy Jones, 22, both of Catonsville, enter the store around 3:30 a.m. The two suspects entered the business via a roll-up door that faces the Boardwalk. They entered the business by opening the door and then closing it behind them.
