OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Ocean City Police have arrested a man they say stole an off-duty law enforcer’s handgun from a hotel room.

Police say a federal law enforcement officer who was staying at the Comfort Inn last week reported his off-duty .40 caliber handgun and several other items were missing from his room.

Ocean City police looked at hotel surveillance videos and identified a suspect. His description was broadcast to officers.

Police arrested a man on the Boardwalk and say he had the stolen handgun.

Jeffery Lynn King, 19, of Bridgeville, Del. has been charged with burglary, possession of a handgun and other offenses.
