DENTON, Md.- Authorities have arrested two adults and one juvenile in connection with a series of burglaries in Caroline County.

The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office said that on July 29, deputies responded to a home alarm in the area of Deep Shore Road near Martinak State Park.  A member of the Denton Police Department was in the area and was the first to arrive on location. Denton police said the officer observed the rear exterior door of the residence to be open and the interior light was on. The Sheriff's Office says the Denton Police Department waited until a Sheriff’s Office unit arrived to conduct the search. Seconds later, a sheriff's deputy arrived and pulled into the driveway of the residence.

Authorities said the deputy immediately saw three suspects fleeing from the home through a window. Police say one of the three was a juvenile who was immediately taken into custody by Denton police and the other two, later identified as William Oliver Moore, 34, and Brandon Lee Bradley, 18, fled into the large wooded area of Martinak State Park and Camp Mardela, a church camp that runs summer camps for youth.

Police say the two officers put out a call for assistance at which time police units from multiple police departments from throughout Caroline County responded. They say within minutes specialized units from the state and local departments in bordering counties responded to assist with securing a perimeter. The Caroline County 911 center put out a blanketed telephone call to residents in the immediate area to make them aware of the situation and both Camp Mardela and Martinak State Park authorities were notified.

Four K-9’s responded to the area, one of which was a blood hound assigned to the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office. Police say within minutes, the blood hound picked up the track of the suspects and led the pursuit. The Sheriff's Office says when the track came within a close proximity to the suspects, they attempted escape however they were apprehended by police officers maintaining the perimeter.

Authorities said it was later learned through the investigation and later admissions of the three suspects, that a total of eight burglaries were solved within the Caroline County. Police said four burglaries were committed by the suspects in the Town of Greensboro, and four more were committed out in the County. The adult suspects received multiple charges and were held at the Caroline County Detention Center pending further criminal prosecution. The juvenile was held in detention at a location in Salisbury pending further review of the investigation with the Department of Juvenile Justice and the Caroline County States Attorney’s Office.
