Carjacking suspects arrested in Crofton

Two men were arrested in Crofton on Friday in connection to at least one carjacking incident in the area.

An officer on patrol in Crofton noticed two vehicles he suspected were involved in stealing motorcycles, so he continued to monitor their movements. According to police, Clinton resident Kevin M. Wilkins, 25, got out of the white minivan he was driving on Forksbridge Court in Gambrills and fled from the scene on foot. Darrel Lamont King, Jr., 29, of Cheverly, who was in a separate vehicle, was immediately detained, while Wilkins turned himself in as police were canvassing the area. The van was later found to have been stolen shortly before the incident, police said.

Wilkins and King were transported to Western District following their arrests.
