COMMUNITY ALERT UPDATE
As a result of a joint investigation with the Pocomoke City Police Department, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and the Princess Anne Police Department we have collectively identified a suspect deemed responsible for the rash of thefts from vehicles and have located the stolen vehicle reported stolen from the Jenkins Orchard area of Pocomoke City. Pocomoke City Police conducted and will continue diligent saturation enforcement patrols daily in the Jenkins Orchard area during the day and evening hours.
All of the above named agencies are currently in the process of obtaining Arrest Warrants for this individual and will soon have the suspect in custody. Property from the thefts as well as the stolen vehicle have been recovered.
Pocomoke City Police want to remind residents that the hot summer months are fast approaching and with it brings the increased opportunity for individuals to steal from vehicles that are left unlocked and the windows open. I encourage residents to make sure you do not leave your keys in the ignition, the vehicle running and to keep your vehicles locked at all times. In addition, do not leave items such as; money, loose change, wallets, computers, headsets, etc. in plain view as these will be an enticement for a thief to enter your vehicle.
