Anne Arundel County police said they arrested three men Friday after a report of a stolen credit card tipped them off to a theft in progress in Hanover.
Police said in a press release that officers arrived at 6:35 p.m. to the I-97 business park in Millersville, where a man reported that his wallet had been stolen.
The responding officer, Cpl. Jeff Golas, investigated the incident and learned that one of the stolen credit cards had just been used at a store in Hanover. Golas was aware of some recent incidents of stolen credit cards, and contacted other officers in the area.
County police officers said they worked with store security personnel to locate the suspects using video surveillance.
While other officers maintained visual contact with the suspects, Golas responded to the scene and apprehended suspects as they exited the store, police said.
Police arrested Malcolm Marcell White, 20, of 909 B&A Blvd. in Severna Park, and charged him with theft, credit card fraud and destruction to property. Police said White was identified in several other similar incidents, and that there were four open warrants for his arrest.
Police also arrested Justin Malik Kuntz of 691 Mesquite Road in Severn, and David Leo Deavers, 19, of 112 Buckingham Dr. in Glen Burnie. Both were charged with theft, credit card fraud and destruction to property.
