URBANA, MD – At approximately 9:30 p.m., on Friday, July 23, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office deputies were working the Urbana, Maryland, carnival when they observed a Black male wearing a shoulder bag with the distinct outline of a handgun, which could be seen through the bag. Deputies approached the subject, who fled, and a lengthy foot chase ensued. Deputies quickly caught the subject, identified as Marquis Desade Scottland, age 19, of Hagerstown, Maryland, and took him into custody. Upon the initial search of the Scottland, his shoulder bag was open and found to be empty. Deputies immediately set a perimeter, a K-9 article search, and a grid search and successfully located the handgun in a grass field used for carnival parking. Deputies transported Scottland to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for booking.
