PASADENA, Md. (WJZ)– Police have arrested two men suspected of stealing boat and camper batteries from several Anne Arundel County communities.

Alex Kent Phelps, 22, and Randolph Kawaley, 22,  were arrested April 9 for several thefts in the neighborhoods of Riviera Beach, Sunset Beach, Orchard Beach and Chelsea Beach.

On April 9 around 3 p.m., detectives set up surveillance in the 8400-block of Greenway Road in Pasadena. They were able to identify Phelps, who was in the backyard of the home with several people. Phelps fled to a wooded area behind the home.

Police canvassed the woods and later found Phelps and Kawaley by a pile of batteries. Both suspects fled the scene and attempted to hide by the shoreline of Riviera Beach near Stoney Creek before being apprehended.

Phelps was arrested, and Kawaley was detained at the scene.

Further investigation revealed the batteries the two suspects had been standing by were stolen earlier that night in a garage burglary and from a boat in the 100-block of Park Road.

Kawaley was then arrested and transported as well.

The suspects told police of at least 15 addresses where boat or camper batteries were taken during the past week. A detective responded to those addresses to confirm the thefts, some of which had not yet been reported.

Additional charges will be sought for Phelps and Kawaley for various theft and destruction incidents. Charges are pending against other conspirators.

Anyone experiencing a similar theft is urged to contact the Metal Theft Unit at 410-222-6003.
