PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (AP/WBOC) - Police in Calvert County say they arrested an intoxicated man who tried to steal candy from a Subway restaurant while wearing only a pair of shorts and white socks.

The Calvert County Sheriff's Office said 50-year-old James Dean Wirick, of Lusby, was found inside the business at around 1:30 p.m. Friday. Deputies had responded to the Subway in Prince Frederick for a report of a disorderly person.

Authorities say Wirick appeared to be drunk and was not wearing a shirt or shoes. They say a deputy spotted Wirick trying to put candy in his pocket.

He was charged with theft under $100 and disorderly conduct.

He was also charged with destruction of property less than $1,000 after authorities say he ripped a telephone out of the wall at the county detention center.
