18-Months In OC Theft, Drug Case

Sean Dempsey

SNOW HILL — An Ocean City man pleaded guilty last week in Circuit Court to burglary, theft and possession of heroin and was sentenced to 12 years, all but 18 months of which were suspended.

In late January, Ocean City Police served a warrant on Sean F. Dempsey, 24, of Ocean City, concluding several months of investigation. Dempsey was indicted by a Worcester County grand jury on multiple charges stemming from eight separate incidents that took place between May and November 2014.

The indictment indicated Dempsey allegedly broke into the Sun and Fun Motel in Ocean City, a felony that carries a maximum 15-year sentence. Another count alleges Dempsey used information obtained from his place of employment, Primo Hoagies, to obtain goods. Other counts allege Dempsey, on two separate occasions, stole money from his employer in amounts of at least $1,000 to under $10,000.

Several counts in the indictment alleged Dempsey was floating counterfeit checks, also felonies that carry 10-year maximum sentences. There were also multiple counts alleging credit card fraud. The indictment lists the alleged incidents during which Dempsey illegally used credit cards belonging to others. In addition, there are multiple counts in the indictment alleging heroin and paraphernalia possession.

Dempsey was charged with 31 separate counts including second-degree burglary, seven counts of theft and theft scheme, nine counts of credit card fraud, and heroin possession and paraphernalia possession among others. Last week, Dempsey pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary and was sentenced to 12 years in jail, all but 18 months of which were suspended. He also pleaded to theft scheme and was sentenced to 10 years with all but 18 months suspended.

Dempsey also pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and was sentenced to 18 months for that conviction. In total, Dempsey was sentenced to 18 months of active incarceration. He was also fined $500 and placed on supervised probation for three years upon his release. Dempsey was also ordered to pay restitution in the amounts of $263 to the Sun and Fun Motel and $1,299 to Primo Hoagies.

BERLIN- On a frigid opening day that felt more like winter than early spring, Stephen Decatur’s varsity baseball team took care of business in workmanlike fashion with a tidy 11-0 win over visiting Mardela.

The talented, veteran Seahawks opened the 2015 campaign with a home game against the Warriors on Monday with game time temperatures hovering in the mid-30s and a brisk wind whipping around the field at Decatur. The adverse conditions did little to slow the Seahawks, who scored two runs in the first and cruised to the 11-0 win.

With bases loaded in the first, Ryan Bennett smacked a line drive to left center to score two runs and stake the Seahawks to an early 2-0 lead. The hits would keep on coming throughout the game for Decatur, which routed the Warriors, 11-0. Meanwhile, starter Sean Colgan was impressive on the mound, scattering a handful of hits and a couple of walks while keeping Mardela off the scoreboard throughout the game.

Decatur returns a core group of veteran players from last year’s team that went 17-1 in the regular season and captured the Bayside Conference championship before falling to La Plata in the state 3A-South region final. University of Maryland-bound Justin Meekins returns at shortstop and is a sparkplug in the middle of the line-up. University of Virginia-bound Grant Donahue will pitch and play third base and Bennett is also a key returning player along with Zach Adams, Brooks Holloway and newcomer Tristan McDonough among others. The Seahawks play Snow Hill on the road on Monday before a tough early season stretch with Parkside on the road and Bennett at home next week.

Accord Ensures Powdered Alcohol Stays Out Of Md.

ANNAPOLISExpressing deep concern for the health and safety of Marylanders, Comptroller Peter Franchot this week announced that a voluntary agreement to ban the distribution and sale of powdered alcohol has been reached with the Maryland State Licensed Beverage Association, Maryland Beer Wholesalers Association and the Licensed Beverage Distributors of Maryland

“This product, by its very nature, presents a significant and untenable risk to the health and safety of Maryland consumers,” said Franchot, who serves as Maryland’s chief regulator of alcohol. “The likelihood of widespread Palcohol abuse – particularly among underage consumers – carries a real possibility of tragic consequences, which is why I’m so pleased by the industry’s unified response to protect the public from such a dangerous product.”

The U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau recently approved several labels for Palcohol, a powdered form of alcohol that can be dissolved in a beverage and then consumed. It is expected to be in stores nationwide by the end of summer. Several states have recently passed legislation banning the sale of powdered alcohol.

“Powdered alcohol has the very real potential for abuse and it simply doesn’t represent the type of responsible consumption that our members stand for,” said David Marberger, President, Maryland State Licensed Beverage Association. “We need to act now to protect the health and well-being of Maryland consumers. Every tier of the alcohol beverage industry stands together on this.”

Franchot expressed concern over misuse of powered alcohol, particularly by minors. In a letter to the alcohol beverage industry, he pointed out that the concentration or percentage of alcohol can be increased to dangerous and potentially life-threatening proportions by adding powdered alcohol to an alcohol beverage or by adding the powdered alcoholic substance to an already “activated” packet of Palcohol. The Maryland alcoholic beverage retailers and wholesalers quickly agreed to the Comptroller’s request for a voluntary industry-wide ban, expressing their shared concern for the danger that powdered alcohol poses to the Maryland public.

“The agreement ensures that this dangerous product stays off store shelves and out of the hands of minors and young adults,” said Betty Buck, president, Maryland Beer Wholesalers Association. “This is the responsible thing to do and the right thing to do. Our industry stands united in our commitment to responsibly act to protect public health and public safety.”

Franchot brokered a similar voluntary ban of caffeinated alcoholic beverages with the industry in 2010 following several tragedies throughout the country that included the death of a Maryland teenager caused by drinks that mixed caffeine and alcohol at life-threatening levels.

“We rallied several years ago to successfully ban the distribution and sale of caffeinated alcoholic beverages because we recognized the harmful effects of these drinks,” said Jimmy Smith, president, Licensed Beverage Distributors of Maryland. “We will work with the Comptroller any time we can to help keep Marylanders safe from harmful products.”

School System Seeks 6% Increase In County Funding


SNOW HILL – School system officials this week advocated for the $82.7 million in county funding they say is needed to promote college and career readiness and support local teachers.

At a budget work session with the Worcester County Commissioners Tuesday, Superintendent of Schools Jerry Wilson said that while he understood the county faced financial challenges its support was still needed.

“We are in tough times,” he said. “We’ve been advised that revenues will not support full funding of our request. We are obligated to advise the county of what our needs are. The Board of Education has worked diligently along with our schools to prepare this budget request. Where we all share a common interest is we all want the best for the children in Worcester County. ”

The school system’s proposed budget shows a $4.7 million increase (or 6 percent) in county funding over that of the current year. That, Wilson explained, would help fund a STEP increase and 2.5 percent Cost of Living Adjustment for teachers as well as a salary increase for bus drivers. Wilson pointed out that teachers hadn’t received any pay increases in 2010, 2011 or 2012. Worcester County now ranks 16th in the state in teacher pay levels.

“We believe we’re struggling to keep up,” Wilson said. “The growth in wages is not catching up with what was lost. We’re not keeping up with the cost of living.”

He said the school system was doing what it could to cut costs, particularly in the area of energy use, and had a modified hiring freeze in place.

“We look at every position and decide if we need to hire someone immediately,” he said.

Commissioner Chip Bertino asked how many people the school system would lose through attrition this year. Vince Tolbert, the school system’s chief financial officer, said 40 people would leave. Wilson said it was too early to say whether all those positions would need to be filled in the coming year.

“We’re still in the process of evaluating,” he said.

Commissioners also had questions about class sizes in Worcester County. Wilson said the overall ratio was one teacher for every eight students but that class sizes varied dramatically between schools. At busier schools, like Ocean City Elementary or Stephen Decatur High schools, he said there could be as many as 30 students in a class.

Wilson said that between teachers and bus contractors, 90 percent of the school system’s budget was spent on people. Those people are the ones who make Worcester County one of the top school systems in Maryland.

“We are increasingly at risk without adequate funding,” he said.

Wilson said a study by Salisbury University’s BEACON program showed that the $97 million invested in the school system yielded a return of $211 million in economic activity.

Following the presentation by Wilson and Tolbert, Commissioner Joe Mitrecic asked whether there was a mandate that required the county’s Board of Education to have its own financial department.

Wilson replied that he was not sure if it was required or not but that with the number of audits and financial requirements the school system faced he thought it was wise.

“I think it warrants it,” he said.

The Worcester County Commissioners will spend the coming weeks drafting a budget for FY 2016. Facing a $22 million shortfall, officials were advised by county staff last week they would need to begin reducing costs or finding additional revenues. A second work session is scheduled for April 14.




Nephew Charged With Burglarizing Uncle

Social Issues & Government

OCEAN CITY — A Delaware man was arrested last week on first-degree burglary and other charges after an investigation connected him to the theft of a silver bar and old coins he allegedly swiped from his uncle’s Ocean City residence before pawning them in area shops.

Last June 12, an OCPD officer responded to a residence on Jarvis Ave. in north Ocean City for a reported breaking and entering. The officer met with the victim, who said he returned to his residence and noticed the screen door was open but the front door was locked, which is not how he left it.

The victim said a fan in an open window appeared to be slightly ajar. The victim told police he believed someone had entered through the window and then left through the front door. The victim noticed several items missing including a 1971 Franklin Mint Christmas silver bar valued at $150 and a glass beer mug containing around $40 in loose change.

An OCPD detective entered the 1971 silver bar into the Regional Automated Property Information Database (RAPID) and received a notification a similar item had been pawned at a pawn shop in Rehoboth that same day. The pawn shop requires customers to provide photo identification. The customer who pawned the silver bar was identified by his Delaware driver’s license as Andrew Dulaney, 31, of Lewes, Del. In addition to the 1971 Franklin Mint silver bar, the suspect also pawned a Morgan silver dollar and a Peace Dollar. The pawn shop paid Dulaney $52 for all three items. The detective recovered the silver bar and coins.

Six days later on June 18, the OCPD detective met with the victim who positively identified the silver bar as his property. The detective also showed the victim Dulaney’s picture and the victim positively identified the suspect as his nephew.

The victim told police his nephew did not have permission to enter his residence or remove any of his property. The victim also advised he determined a book containing about 100 Indian head pennies was also missing.

Based on the investigation, the detective applied for charges of first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary and theft less than $1,000 against Dulaney. Last Thursday, Dulaney was taken into custody and charged with the listed offenses. He was arrested and taken before a District Court Commissioner before being released on his own recognizance.


Dangerous Weapons Bust

OCEAN CITY — A White Marsh, Md. man was arrested this week on weapons charges after resort police found him in possession of a knife, a wooden club and metal knuckles.

Around 11 p.m. on Monday, an OCPD officer responded to an address near 7th Street and Philadelphia Ave. for a report of a man with gun. Upon arrival, the officer located a suspect, identified as William Elcock, 29, of White Marsh, and found him to be in possession of three dangerous weapons.

During a consent search of Elcock’s vehicle, the officer located on the dashboard a spring-assisted knife. When asked, Elcock confirmed the knife was his. The officer also found in the vehicle a wood club hidden between the driver’s seat and the driver’s side door. At that point, Elcock was taken into custody and charged with possession of an assisted opening knife within the city limits of Ocean City and for possessing a concealed dangerous weapon.

During a subsequent search after the arrest for the knife and the wooden club, the officer located metal knuckles in Elcock’s front right pants pocket. When informed the metal knuckles were also illegal, Elcock reportedly said “yeah, I know,” according to police reports.


Drug Arrest After Seatbelt Stop

OCEAN CITY — A Berlin man was arrested on various drug charges this week after a routine traffic stop for a seatbelt violation in Ocean City.

Around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, an OCPD officer working in a plainclothes capacity in a covert vehicle observed a Mazda pick-up truck in the area of 94th Street with its front seat passenger not wearing a seatbelt. The vehicle was ultimately pulled over in the area of 142nd Street for the traffic violation. Another OCPD officer responded with his K-9 partner, who performed an exterior scan on the vehicle resulting in a positive alert for the presence of illegal drugs.

During a subsequent search, officers found a bag under the seat of the driver, identified as Erich Messer, 30, of Berlin. In the bag, officers located a hypodermic syringe and other pieces of paraphernalia including small Ziploc bags and pieces of blue wax paper bags containing a white powdery substance consistent with heroin.

In all, officers located two syringes, two spoons including a metal one with burns marks on the bottom and four metal pipes with burnt residue inside them. Three of the four pipes characterized as crack pipes that had wire mesh in one end commonly used to clog one end of the pipe to keep a rock of crack cocaine in place. During a search of Messer’s person, officers located a small portion of a pen tube in his pocket consistent with making a straw in order to snort controlled dangerous substances. Messer was arrested and charged with possession of heroin and cocaine and possession of various items of paraphernalia.


Charged Despite Nap Excuse

OCEAN CITY — A local man was arrested for breaking and entering this week after being found sleeping in the crawl space of a residence in the area of 6th Street.

Around 3:30 p.m. last Saturday, OCPD officers patrolling in the downtown area observed a man, later identified as Jeffrey Taylor, 53, of Ocean City, disappear behind a residence on 6th Street and St. Louis Ave. The officers responded to the area and did not see the suspect, but located an uncovered opening to a crawl space under the house. As one of the officers was walking by the residence, he peered through another opening to the underneath of the building and observed several beer cans strewn about.

The officers walked toward the crawl space and could observe the shoes of an individual underneath the building with the wooden covering for the crawl space opening lying nearby. The officers then observed Taylor sleeping just inside the crawl space. They identified themselves as police officers and asked Taylor to come out of the crawl space.

The officers questioned Taylor, who told them he was just looking for a place to take a nap, according to police reports. Taylor told police he had a place to stay, but was recently forced to leave it. When asked if he had permission to sleep under the residence, Taylor told police he did not.

Taylor was placed under arrest for fourth-degree burglary. The officer observed in his report nothing appeared to have been missing or out of place in the crawl space except for the displaced wooden covering, which appeared to be its only point of entry. OCPD officer later spoke with the property owners who confirmed they did not know Taylor nor did he have permission to be under the residence.


Probation For Officer After Firing Shot In Air

SALISBURY — A Maryland Correctional Services officer, arrested in Salisbury in October after displaying a badge and ultimately firing a shot from a handgun into the air, was found guilty this week of reckless endangerment and was sentenced to two years, all of which was suspended in favor of probation.

Around 2:15 a.m. last Oct. 22, Salisbury Police officers responded to the America’s Best Value Inn on N. Salisbury Blvd. for a report of an allegedly intoxicated male displaying a police badge and handgun. The investigation revealed the suspect had left the hotel area and was last seen walking southbound on Route 13.

Officers located the suspect, later identified as Raymond Wesley Wills III, 39, of Hagerstown, near the intersection of Route 13 and Naylor Mill Rd. The responding officers observed Wills point the handgun in an upward direction and fire a single shot. Wills then walked toward the nearby Motel 6 and attempted to enter the lodging establishment.

When Salisbury Police took Wills into custody, he identified himself as a police officer. The officers recovered the handgun and the shell casing as evidence. Wills was charged with reckless endangerment, endangering public safety and discharging a firearm within city limits. At the time he was taken into custody, Wills was in possession of a badge and credentials identifying him as a sworn police officer employed by the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

On Monday, Wills entered an Alford plea to reckless endangerment. In an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges the state has enough evidence to prosecute the case. Wills was sentenced to two years, all of which was suspended. He was then placed on two years of supervised probation.


OCPD Officers Honored

OCEAN CITY — Two Ocean City Police Department officers last week were honored with Officer of the Year awards from different service organizations in the resort area.

Last Monday, OCPD Pfc. Nathan Kutz received the Officer of the Year award from the American Legion Post 166 in Ocean City. Two days later, Pfc. Aaron Morgan received the Officer of the Year from the Knights of Columbus. Both officers are members of the OCPD’s Traffic Safety Unit and each was recently a finalist in the Neighborhood Watch Officer of the Year voting earlier this year.

“Pfc. Kutz and Pfc. Morgan are both excellent members of the Traffic Safety Unit and are very deserving of these awards,” said OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro. “They are both exemplary officers and are dedicated to the safety of our roadways.”

Kutz began his career with the OCPD as a seasonal officer in 2009 and was hired as a full-time officer in 2012. He joined the Traffic Safety Unit shortly thereafter and has gone through advanced training in traffic crash and impaired driver investigations. Kutz is recognized by the state of Maryland as a Smooth Operator and has earned numerous awards from MADD. He was promoted to Pfc. in January.

Morgan joined the OCPD as a full-time officer in 2006 and is highly trained in traffic safety. He has been a MADD DUI Award recipient in each of the last six years, a state of Maryland DUI award recipient for five consecutive years and is a three-time Smooth Operator award winner. Morgan was one of only two officers in Maryland to receive the ACE award, which is given to officers that have arrested at least 100 impaired drivers in one year.

Md. Senate Approves Hotel Tax Loophole Legislation

OCEAN CITY — In an issue near and dear to the resort area with its thousands of hotel and motel rooms, the state Senate this week passed legislation that would close a loophole that allows online booking companies to remit less sales tax to the state than their traditional counterparts.

Senate Bill 190 would clarify the definition of “taxable price” for the sales and use tax as it applies to third party vendors, such as Orbitz, Expedia or Priceline, which buy blocks of hotel rooms at a wholesale price and sell them to consumers at or near the regular retail price. Online travel agents (OTAs) buy blocks of hotel accommodations in areas like Ocean City, for example, at lower wholesale rates and then sell them to consumers at higher rates.

It’s in established business practice that allows the OTAs to provide lower prices for consumers than what they might get in dealing directly with the hotels. However, a loophole in the current low allows the OTAs and brick and mortar travel agencies to remit to the state the sales and use tax only on the discounted rate and not the entire rate charged to the consumer.

In simpler terms scaled down for the sake of math, if an OTA hotelier charges $100 for a hotel room, the sales tax remitted to the state is six percent, or $6. However, an OTA might buy the same room for $80 and then sell it to the consumer at the same $100, but only remit to the state six percent on the $80 for which it booked the room, or around $4.80.

Senate Bill 190, which the passed the full Senate by a vote of 32-15 this week, would close that loophole and force the OTAs to remit the entire sales and use tax to the state. In the long run, the bill does not lower the cost of a hotel room for the consumer, but only forces the OTAs to pay the same tax rate to the state as the regular hoteliers.

For the OTAs, the bill is seen as a new tax that will only hurt the travel industry across Maryland including Ocean City.

“By levying a new sales tax on more than 1,100 local travel agents and the online travel companies that help local destinations market themselves to global consumers, Senate Bill 190 makes Maryland hotels more expensive, hurts local small businesses and makes the state less competitive,” said Travel Technology Association President Steve Shur.

However, the lodging industry, including the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association and others, believe the bill levels the playing field and generate more sales and use tax for the state from hotel bookings without any added expense for the consumer.

“This action in the Senate is good news for the state of Maryland and good news for hotel guests in Maryland who booked their rooms using an online travel company,” said Maryland Hotel and Lodging Association President and CEO David Reel. “It is good news for the state as enactment of this bill will generate more state sales tax revenue without a new tax of an increase in an existing tax rate.”

Reel said the legislation, if approved, would benefit consumers because they have paid the sales and use tax on the entire cost of the room, but see the OTAs turn around and remit less tax to the state.

“It is also good news for all the guests of Maryland hotels who booked their rooms using an online travel company and have paid the full amount of tales tax on that room, but have ended up with only a part of their sales tax payment being remitted to the state by the online travel companies,” said Reel.

However, the OTAs and travel agencies are calling Senate Bill 190 a new tax on hotel rooms and characterizing the legislation as another way for the state government to get into the pockets of consumers and small businesses in Maryland. For example, Travel Tech, whose members include Priceline, Expedia, and Orbitz among others, called the legislation “a stunning move with wide-ranging implications on Maryland’s travel and tourism economy.”

“Masked as a bill to close a loophole, this travel service tax would do nothing more than burden an industry that brings valuable jobs and commerce into the state,” said Shur. “Courts across the nation have looked at the issue of whether online travel companies collect and remit the proper amount in taxes. In every court decision, courts found in favor of the online travel companies.”

Despite a widespread assumption that online travel company room rates are lower than the rates secured directly from a hotel, the fact is, after booking a room, the online travel websites collect the same amount of money from consumers as the hotels do, but shortchange the state by remitting less sales and use tax. Senate Bill, 190, approved by the Senate this week and sent over to the House, would level the playing field, according to Reel.

“This legislation represents a common-sense solution to a simple problem without raising taxes or increasing the rate of a current tax,” he said.  “The tax code shouldn’t pick winners and losers, and it certainly shouldn’t disadvantage the hotels that are driving economic growth and job creation in Maryland.”

OC Elementary Second Grade Class Studies American History, Geography And Famous People And Places In The USA

Students F

Students in Linda Brown’s second grade class at Ocean City Elementary gather around Mr. Fonner (Mrs. Brown’s father) as he shares his special coins of US Presidents and National Parks. The students have been studying American history, geography and famous people and places in the USA.  They discovered that coins have all kinds of interesting facts on them.
