Police: 3 Arrested for Breaking Into Cars, Stealing A Loaded Semi-Automatic Handgun

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. -- The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said three Salisbury men are facing theft charges after they allegedly broke into cars and stole a loaded firearm.

It happened on Wednesday in the Rustic Acres neighborhood.

According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to reports of people running through the neighborhood around 5 a.m. When they got there, police said they saw a taxi cab leave the neighborhood at high speeds.

Police pulled the cab over. Inside, police found Giovonte K. Fields, 19, Salisbury, as well as two 16-year-old boys. The Sheriff's Office said the three people didn't live in the neighborhood and couldn't give deputies a reason for being there.

Through their investigation, police learned that many cars in the neighborhood had been ransacked. Police said the three men were then found in possession of a large amount of change as well as a loaded semi-automatic handgun.

All of those items, police said, had been stolen from unlocked vehicles.

The three men were arrested and taken before a District Court Commissioner. The two juveniles were charged as adults. They were all detained without bond pending a District Court Bond Review.

    The 12th annual event is expected to bring in thousands of people, so Dirato recommends getting to the 17th street area as early as possible to get a good spot.
