OCEAN CITY — A pair of convicted sex offenders wanted by local law enforcement for failing to register in the state’s sex offender registry were nabbed in Ocean City this week by the Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) and remain behind bars without bond.
Last week, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office announced it was seeking Andrew David Harris, 45, of Ocean City, for failing to re-register as a sex offender within three days of moving to a new location. Harris, a Tier 2 sex offender, is also wanted in Delaware for numerous unrelated matters. When Harris failed to re-register within the appointed time, a warrant was sworn out for his arrest.
Around 7:25 p.m. on Monday, an off-duty OCPD officer received information Harris might be in Ocean City. The off-duty officer then contacted the on-duty OCPD shift supervisor and relayed the tip about Harris’ possible whereabouts after verifying Harris was wanted on an outstanding warrant and failing to register as a sex offender following his release from jail in April
Harris was then located by the OCPD at a residence on Philadelphia Ave. near 5th Street and was taken into custody without incident. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner and ordered held without bond before being transferred to the Worcester County Jail, where he remained late this week.
Around 6:50 p.m. on Tuesday, OCPD received information about a second wanted sex offender who may be in the resort area. Evening shift officers investigated the possible whereabouts of the wanted sex offender, identified as Delmar James Cubbage, 21, of Ocean City, who was also wanted for failing to re-register.
OCPD officers located Cubbage at a residence on Philadelphia Ave. near 8th Street and he was taken into custody without incident. In September, Cubbage was found guilty of failing to register as a sex offender and was sentenced to a year in jail, all but 64 days of which were then suspended. Cubbage was then given credit for the 64 days he spent in jail awaiting trial. Cubbage was also taken before an Ocean City District Court Commissioner and was ordered held without bond before being transferred to the Worcester County Jail.
