HOUSTON, Del.- Two Kent County teens have turned themselves in to Delaware State Police for allegedly stealing golf carts from the annual June Jam Festival. 

Four carts were stolen the June 15 weekend, and all were returned to event organizers by June 20. 

William J. Adams, 18, of Harrington was charged with two counts of felony theft of a motor vehicle, second-degree conspiracy, and two counts of criminal mischief. He was released on $8,000.00 unsecured bond. 

A 15-year-old male of Camden was also charged with two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief and was released to his parents pending an appearance in Family Court. 

Both teens were charged July 1, after turning themselves in at Troop 3. 

Archie Hunnel, 17, turned himself in late last month on the same charges as Adams in connection with the thefts.

June Jam organizers say volunteers rent golf carts to get around more easily. After the event, they leave the carts for the rental company to pick up the following Monday. 

June Jam raises money for A.I. Dupont Children's Hospital and United Veterans Outreach.

    Devastating Fire Destroyed the Old Wicomico Youth & Civic Center 40 Years Ago Tuesday

    40 years ago Tuesday the old Wicomico Youth and Civic Center was destroyed by one of the county’s most devastating fires.

    On June 27, 1977, a floor buffer sparked a highly flammable sealant being applied and, in an instant, the community’s cherished center shot up in flames, dark smoke billowing that could be seen as far south as Princess Anne and as far north as Laurel, Del.
