A Hagerstown man pleaded guilty Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court to stealing a police bicycle in downtown Hagerstown in July 2005, according to court documents.

Darrell Robert McCammon, 51, whose address is listed in charging documents as 1524 Howell Road, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft before Circuit Judge John H. McDowell for the July 19 offense.

McDowell delayed McCammon's sentencing until Feb. 23, documents state.

According to charging documents, Hagerstown Police Department Officer C.T. Streightiff's patrol bicycle and helmet were stolen after he parked it in front of Gourmet Goat II, on the corner of Jonathan and Franklin streets, and went inside about 2 p.m. on July 19.

McCammon was found with the patrol bicycle about 10 minutes later in the 100 block of East Memorial Street, documents state.

When McCammon was arrested, he told police that he took it because he thought it belonged to another police officer, according to charging documents.

He allegedly made several threats against that officer while he was being placed into custody, documents state.
