CAMBRIDGE — A Delaware duo face theft and drug charges after getting their vehicle stuck while allegedly stealing irrigation control systems on Saturday morning, Feb. 6, in Dorchester County.

Sheriff Jimmy Phillips said deputies from the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Bethel Road in northern Dorchester County for a report of a vehicle stuck in a field.

Upon arrival, deputies made contact with 32-year-old Jamie Isabella Reed and 35-year-old Matthew John Davis, both of Bridgeville, Delaware.

Phillips said deputies found that the pair had been involved with stealing irrigation control wire from irrigation systems in the area, allegedly taking wire from three systems locally.

During the search of the suspects and vehicle, a small quantity of heroin was found along with other drug-related paraphernalia, police said.

Reed and Davis were charged with three counts of theft, three counts of malicious destruction of property, possession of heroin and possession of paraphernalia.

Davis also was charged with being a fugitive from justice as he was also wanted in Delaware. Davis was held without bond, and Reed was released by a court commissioner on $15,000 unsecured bond.
