NEW FOR MONDAY: OCPD Seeks Help In Baby Ava Benefit Theft Case
Ocean City Police this week are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect who stole a beach umbrella valued at $125 intended to be a silent auction item at a fundraiser for Baby Ava, the little girl critically injured in an accident in mid-December.
Last Thursday, Ocean City Police responded to the Pour House bar on Wicomico Street to investigate a theft that had occurred during a fundraiser for Ava DelRicco, a toddler critically injured in an accident on Coastal Highway at 142nd Street on December 16 when the vehicle in which she was riding was rear-ended at a high rate of speed by a driver allegedly impaired by PCP. During the benefit, attended by approximately 200 people, a silent auction was planned.
However, Pour House management told Ocean City Police one of the silent auction items, a large, canvas red and maroon Molson Beer umbrella measuring six feet tall with a wooden pole, was stolen during the event.
