From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
[May 28, 2013 – Bel Air, MD] — On May 25, 2013 at approximately 5:30 p.m., deputies on routine patrol in the area of Route 1 and Route 136 were dispatched to the Queens Castle Mobile Home Park in Dublin for a report of a black male operating a green Mercedes and alleged to be selling narcotics in the mobile home park.
On previous occasions, the Sheriff’s Office had received similar calls regarding this same male suspect and had been surveilling the area. Deputies arrived and observed a green Mercedes leaving the Park. Deputies followed the vehicle further observing the vehicle to drive into and around the NBRS Bank at Rt. 1 and Rt. 136 acting in a suspicious manner. Deputies then stopped the vehicle at Rt. 1 and Rt. 136 identifying the driver as William Oglesby, 28, of 421 S. Law St. in Aberdeen.
Deputies then requested an MSP K-9 to the scene to conduct a drug scan of the vehicle. Upon getting a positive alert from the canine for the presence of a controlled dangerous substance deputies checked the car and retraced Mr. Oglesby’s drive around the bank. As a result they found a clear medium sized bag containing a powdery like substance with multiple pre-packaged baggies lying on the ground just before the drive thru at the rear of the bank. A field test revealed the substance was suspected crack cocaine.
Mr. Oglesby was placed under arrest for CDS Possession, sale and manufacturing as well as several traffic violations. During the process he suffered a panic attack and began vomiting. After telling deputies he was ok they continued transporting him to the Detention Center. Upon arrival at the Detention Center Oglesby began vomiting again, this time inside the holding cell. Deputies checking on his well-being learned from Oglesby that he had swallowed numerous medications along with a small quantity of heroin. Oglesby was transported to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for evaluation and treatment. He was later released and upon return to the Detention Center was seen by a Harford County District Court Commissioner where he was held on $25,000 bond, which he later posted. Oglesby was released at approximately 6:30 p.m. on May 26th.
Then on May 27th at 9:49p.m., just over 24 hours since his release, deputies responded to 6 James Ave., Bel Air, in reference to a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was described as a 1988 white Dodge work van with PA license plates.
A lookout was immediately posted and at 9:55pm deputies saw a van matching the description entering the Wawa store at 601 Hoagie Drive Bel Air. The van parked in front of the store and deputies saw a black male later identified as William Oglesby, 28, of 421 South Law St. in Aberdeen get out of the vehicle. He was immediately detained while responding deputies investigated the alleged theft.
The owner of the van, David Crothers, 46, of the 1000 block of James St. did not know the suspect and stated he did not have permission to have the vehicle. The operator of the van, Daniel Harris, 21, of the unit block of James Ave. said he heard the van start and saw it drive off leaving James Ave. and heading towards Route 924. He too said Oglesby did not have permission to have the van. This information was then relayed from the scene to where deputies had Oglesby stopped.
Deputies then attempted to place Oglesby under arrest. He tried to run from deputies and resisted arrest but was immediately apprehended without further incident. He has been charged with motor vehicle theft and resisting arrest. Oglesby is currently being held in the Harford County Detention Center in lieu of $15,000 bond.
