For the past month, Charles County Sheriff Cpl. D. Belfield has been investigating a series of thefts from the Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department, between April 2004 and June 2005.

During the investigation, the officer received information indicating Kevin Theodore Young, 46, of Waldorf, was in possession of the stolen property.

Cpl. Belfield obtained a search warrant and a subsequent search of Young’s residence yielded numerous pieces of firefighting equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus, a generator, lights, radios, chargers, door entry tools (Hydraram) and a water shut off key. The property is valued at more than $20,000 and is the property of the Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department.

Also, recovered were tires that were stolen from Tires Plus located at 92 Smallwood Drive in Waldorf.

On Aug. 7, Young was arrested and charged with four counts of theft more than $500 and one count each of theft less than $500 and theft scheme over $500.

He was released from the Charles County Detention Center on his personal recognizance. At the time of the thefts, Young was an employee of Tires Plus and a member of the Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department. He is no longer affiliated with either organization.
