Salisbury Produce Stand Captures Accused Thief on Camera

Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- A produce stand owner has had enough with thieves hitting his business.

Allen Cole provided WBOC with surveillance video from a trail camera set up over his stand on Brown Road in Salisbury. Cole claims that an individual stole money from his cash jar last Wednesday. The surveillance video shows a young man with a bike allegedly looking around before taking money and walking away.

"Sorry this happened to him," Cole said. "But I think this needed to be caught so it doesn't escalate into something larger that could cause him even bigger trouble down the road."

Some produce stands are not constantly manned and use an honor code when the owner is away. Customers are asked to take only what they pay for.

Maryland State Police formed a suspect in this case within hours, thanks to calls from sharing the video on social media.

"Just the response we got," Cole added. "Putting it on the Facebook page of WBOC. I think it completely just made (an identification) happen instantly."

According to Wicomico County commissioners, the charge of theft under $100 is a misdemeanor that could land the suspect in jail for up to 90 days and a fine up to $500.
