DOVER, Del.- Dover police made multiple arrests at the Firefly Music Festival this weekend.

William Rodriguez, 34, of Miami, is accused of stealing 27 cellphones. According to police, one of the phones was still on and was able to be tracked using the "Find My iPhone" app. Rodriguez was charged with three counts of theft under $1,500 with additional charges pending. He was committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of a $3,000 cash bond. Officers are now working to identify owners of the phones so they can be returned.

A South Carolina man was arrested Friday after fleeing from officers during a counterfeit merchandise investigation. Hassan Mceachin, 24, was allegedly selling counterfeit festival T-shirts in camping lot 2.

He was found to be in possession of 37 counterfeit shirts, $850 in cash and one gram of marijuana. He was committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of a $18,400 bond.

Two men from Ohio were arrested Friday after allegedly selling ecstasy to undercover officers in one of the camping lots.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
