HEBRON, Md.- Police say a wanted man is in custody and two teenagers face charges for allegedly hiding him from the law.
According to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, a deputy responded to Hebron on a tip that a wanted man was seen walking on Main Street.
Police said the officer located 24-year-old Calvin Kinzer Reid, of Salisbury, who was wanted on a Circuit Court bench warrant from April 2011 for failure to appear in court in a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute case.
Authorities said when Reid began to run, the deputy chased him but lost him near the 100 block of Bradley Street.
According to police, the deputy approached two teenage boys on the porch of a home on the 100 block of Bradley Street who claimed they had not seen anyone running in the area.
The deputy could not find Reid on Bradley Street and returned to speak with the boys, police said. According to reports, one of the boys then admitted that a man had run into his home.
Police said the deputy went around to the back of the home and found Reid in the backyard. Officers said that Reid tried to run again, but collapsed due to an ankle injury that he was believed to have suffered by jumping from the second story of the home in an attempt to evade the deputy.
According to reports, Reid continued his attempt to elude the deputy by crawling away, but the deputy easily took him into custody.
Police said that the deputy detected that the two boys, ages 17 and 16 respectively, smelled of marijuana and had recently been smoking the drug. A search inside the home revealed several items of marijuana paraphernalia, according to police.
The 16-year-old was charged with hindering and obstructing, harboring a felon and possession of marijuana on juvenile referral. He was placed on home detention by the Department of Juvenile Services. The 17-year-old was charged with hindering and obstructing, harboring a felon and possession of marijuana and released on personal recognizance.
