ROLLING PLUNDER: Cops snare Demetrius Dorsey with stolen ATV advertised in online marketplace; bozo District Court Commissioner springs him on no bail with outstanding bench warrant for failing to appear for criminal charges
THIEF WAS STUPID ENOUGH TO SHOW UP WITH THE STOLEN ATV AT A SAFE MEETING PLACE!
LA PLATA, MD. – It’s bad enough that the criminals can do as they damn please these days but when the judicial system acts like it is an awful inconvenience that a suspect wanted on a bench warrant for failing to appear for a criminal case is brought in for a bail hearing, it’s clear that the Peoples Republic of Maryland has real problems.
Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry reports that Detectives arrested a suspect in a stolen ATV case.
The police say that the stolen ATV was taken from a nearby unnamed county (perhaps rhyming with “PG” Prince George’s County, the crime armpit of Maryland) after the owner found it for sale on a social media page.
On December 22, 2021, detectives with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office were notified by a victim of a theft that his stolen ATV was listed for sale on a social media page–the vehicle was actually stolen in another county in November.
The victim made an offer and the seller arranged to meet him at a gas station in the 4700 block of Crain Highway in White Plains. CCSO detectives posed as the purchaser and observed the suspect ride the ATV into the parking lot of the gas station.
As the detectives were completing the sale, they arrested the suspect, Demetrius Charles Dorsey, 20, (DOB: 04/09/2001) of 319 Goose Creek Drive, of La Plata, Md.
Dorsey was charged by Charles County Sheriff’s Department Officer David Garrison with felony theft in the amount of $1,500 to $25,000, in reference to the ATV case. He also had an open warrant for failing to appear in court for a malicious destruction charge.
On December 23, 2021, as this is the Alice in Wonderland Maryland Judiciary, District Court Commissioner Naja J. Butler released Dorsey on a $1,500 unsecured bond for the theft case and he was released on personal recognizance for the failure to appear in a criminal court case.
Dorsey is set to appear before District Court Judge W. Louis Hennessey on February 2, 2022. Now he’ll see Low Bail Lou, he’ll know what to do!
It is unknown how Dorsey planned on selling the ATV without a title unless, of course, he planned on returning to the home of the victim to burglarize the place and steal the title too. Buyers who plunk down their money for an ATV and don’t receive a title are bargaining for trouble.
