It’s 2016, that means nothing actually happened if you haven’t posted it on social media. Apparently, this even holds true if you’re going to hijack a vehicle. Brian Englemann, 24, of Mystic Bech, N.Y., allegedly stole a vehicle from OCMD’s, Seacrets parking lot, and recorded the whole thing on Snapchat. Bravo.
A New York man was arrested by Ocean City police on Saturday evening after allegedly stealing a vehicle and recording the incident on Snapchat. Police said Brian S. Engelmann, 24, of Mystic Beach, N.Y., is charged with vehicle theft, in addition to multiple traffic violations that could be seen during the initial series of videos that Englemann had posted including using a handheld phone while driving, negligent driving, and driving while on a suspended license. Police said officers responded at about 10:48 a.m. to the parking lot at Seacrets Bar & Grille on the 5000 block of Coastal Highway for a report of a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was found parked at a condominium building in the area of 37th Street later that morning, however, were not able to identify who stole the Jeep at the time. At approximately 8 p.m., police discovered that Engelmann had posted a series of videos to Snapchat showing him stealing the Jeep Wrangler earlier that morning. Officers were able to locate and record the videos on Snapchat and confirm the identity of Engelmann.
Oh what a night, we can only imagine what went through this guys head on Saturday morning. He probably looked at his phone and thought, “Oh shit, I hope that’s not me on my Snapchat story, stealing a vehicle”. It evidently was, and this would’ve been the best opportunity to turn himself in. But no, this guy decided to hit Seacrets for another round.
WBFF Officers were also able to determine that Engelmann had returned to Seacrets that night,” Ocean City police wrote in a release. “Officers responded to the bar where they quickly located and arrested Engelmann with assistance from Seacrets security staff.”
Honestly, the best part of this, is being charged with using a handheld while driving.
