OCPD Investigating Multiple Thefts of Standpipe Valves

OCEAN CITY, MD – (May 10, 2017): The Ocean City Police Department is currently investigating the recent theft of several brass standpipe valves from the stairwells of five mid-town condominium buildings. These valves are utilized by firefighters to fight fires on upper floors and remote areas of the buildings. Not only are they very costly to replace, but missing valves can potentially endanger the lives of residents and firefighters by hampering the ability to fight fires in impacted buildings.
Residents with standpipe systems are encouraged to check their systems immediately to ensure that standpipe valves are intact and report any stolen valves to the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6602.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective David Whitmer at 410-520-5390 or dwhitmer@oceancitymd.gov.

I have no other way to contact you but you need to look into ex DNR and current Somerset county deputy Victor Kulynycz and his 2 children. They've been trespassing for years and someone's finally just charged them and it looks like hes going to get away with it. They have tons of evidence against him and he's been suspended without pay but it looks like its going to be swept under the rug. We're tired of him getting away with everything!

I don't mean to sound naive,but have things really gotten this bad?People are stealing the copper tubing that goes from the propane tank to the inside of chicken houses.That tubing brings $5 as scrap.Imagine endangering thousands of chickens for $5.The houses are heated by propane.A friend of mine walked up on a guy stealing that section of tubing.Instead of calling the cops he gave the guy $20 to leave it alone.Seriously.

You have to be a special kind of a**hole to steal valves from standpipes for a sprinkler system.

Cops should look ready hard at station 1 cronies they are probably looking for anything to build a fire district one piece at a time lol

Station 1 volunteers wouldn't know what to do with them because they don't train all the more reason they can't perform if they show up to a fire call. Playing X-box and talking 4 wheel drives all night don't make firemen.
