  • Recovery of a Stolen Vehicle (Duck Road)

On February 8, 2023, officers were contacted by management about a group of suspicious individuals who checked in to three condo units in the Ocean Pines community.  When officers arrived to investigate the situation, two individuals ran from the scene after spotting the officers. One of the suspects was apprehended after a brief foot chase.  The second suspect was not apprehended, but officers later learned he was picked up and transported back to Virginia.  After an extensive on-scene investigation, officers learned that a 2021 U-Haul van parked at the scene had been rented in Missouri by a member of the group. 31-year-old Jennifer Wymann of Virginia Beach, Virginia was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property.  Wymann was held at the Dare County Detention Center in leu of a $20,000 secured bond. Management evicted the other subjects from the property and officers escorted them to Wal-Mart in Kitty Hawk. A backpack was later found inside one of the condos.  Officers searched the abandoned backpack and found drug paraphernalia and a flash drive and several notebooks containing evidence of interstate/international credit card fraud.  As the appropriate law enforcement agency, the FBI was contacted and asked to further investigate the evidence.

Upon arrival officers spoke with the crew foreman who had resolved the issue by removing the suspect from his vehicle, taking the keys to the vehicle, and walking the suspect back to his room.  All parties on scene were satisfied with the outcome.
