On Thursday, May 14, 2015 at approximately 5:20 p.m., the Cumberland Police Department responded to Memorial Avenue at First Street in reference to a male subject destroying property and acting in a disorderly manner.  Dispatch advised of an intoxicated male subject who entered a vehicle in this area.  Upon the officers arrival contact was made with the suspect who was identified as, Jason Mark Garlitz who was seated in the driver’s seat of a vehicle which is not his.  The officer began to try to talk to Garlitz about why he was in this vehicle and if he had permission to be in this vehicle.  Garlitz would not talk with the officer; he began yelling and screaming which created a neighborhood disturbance by causing several neighbors attention to be drawn by Garlitz’s actions.  Due to Garlitz’s behavior and him failing to lower his voice he was placed under arrest.

 

After Garlitz was secured the officer began to investigate and spoke with several witnesses who observed Garlitz urinating on the vehicle he was seated in.  The witness stated that Garlitz entered the vehicle and began to destroy items inside the vehicle by pulling contents out of the vehicle and throwing them around inside which caused damage to the interior of the vehicle.  Garlitz was able to shift the vehicle into neutral causing the vehicle to drift a small distance down the street before striking a curb and coming to a rest.

 

Garlitz was transported to Police Headquarters for processing and was later taken to District Court for his initial appearance and was held at the Allegany County Detention Center on $5,000.00.
