Four people from Maryland were arrested recently for the theft of multiple motorcycles, tractors and ATVs. According to investigators, the individuals stole 21 vehicles from dealerships in both Virginia and Pennsylvania, and then sold them in Maryland.
For people convicted of non-violent crimes in Maryland it often makes more sense to provide an alternative to prison. Luckily, alternative sentencing strategies are gaining widespread support throughout the nation, resulting in the first drop in the American prison population since the early 1970s. These programs can benefit those accused of relatively minor crimes, such as shoplifting or drug use.
The Daily Mail has reported on famed British socialite and model Peaches Geldof, daughter of British rocker Bob Geldof, and a recent allegation that she stole approximately $112 worth of cosmetics from a store in London. An undercover store detective for Boots has said he witnessed the younger Geldof shoplifting before he stopped her and brought her to a back office.
