A Washington, D.C., man was charged Monday after Frederick County sheriff's deputies said they found a card skimming device in his possession after responding to a call regarding a suspicious person.
The man, Kevin Curry, 26, was with Sheda'sa Antoinette Thompson, 22, at a gas station in the 7400 block of Shockley Drive shortly after 2:10 p.m. when deputies approached them and their separate vehicles. While talking to the pair, deputies smelled what they believed was marijuana smoke coming from the vehicle Thompson was sitting in and, after a brief argument, deputies searched the vehicle and seized a small plastic bag of marijuana and several prescription pills from inside, according to court documents. Immediately after Thompson was arrested on drug possession charges, Curry became hostile and repeatedly yelled at officers, the documents state.
Curry was then himself arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, at which point his vehicle was searched and deputies recovered a card skimming device, which is illegal to own, in the glove box of his vehicle that Curry later admitted having.
Both Curry and Thompson were released after signing a written promise to appear in court, according to online court records.
