On 07/18/2014 a Cumberland City Police officer on routine patrol conducted a traffic stop in the area of Park Street resulting in the arrest of Thomas Franklin Beacon, 42 of Cumberland.  Officers stopped Beacon after observing a traffic violation. Upon contacting Beacon, the officer found that Beacon’s driver’s license is currently suspended in the state of Maryland.  Officers also found that Beacon was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for failing to appear for trial on a previous driving while suspended charge.  As a result of this stop Beacon was arrested and charged with the following:

Bench Warrant – Failure to Appear on suspended license charge.

Driving Motor Vehicle on Highway on Suspended License and Privilege – 1 count.

Beacon was subsequently taken before a District Court commissioner for a bond hearing and released on his own recognizance pending trial.
