MD man arrested for multiple carwash thefts
CHARLES COUNTY, MD — Detectives here arrested Scott Christopher Beal, 39, for stealing from multiple carwash vending machines across the county, a Baynet.com story said.
The March 23 story said Beal stole from Age to Age Automotive, Speedy Clean Car Wash, Glasva Citgo, McDaniel’s Car Wash, Speedy Clean Car Wash and the Southern Pride Car Wash.
Police had been looking for a man who also had stolen spare tires from vehicles parked at a local commuter lot. An officer had been doing a routine patrol check at the Smallwood Park and Ride when he saw a suspicious looking Ford F-150. When the driver noticed the officer, he sped off, hitting another car, but didn’t stop.
A traffic stop later caught up with the vehicle, which was being driven by Beal who was in possession of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia at the time of the arrest.
