An Aberdeen man is free on bond after being arrested twice over the long Memorial Day holiday weekend, first for allegedly trying to sell crack cocaine and then for allegedly trying to steal a car less than two days later, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.

William Oglesby, 28, of the 400 block of South Law Street, was originally arrested Saturday, when police responded to calls of a man in a green Mercedes allegedly selling drugs in the area of the Queen's Castle Mobile Home Park in Dublin, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Deputies stopped the car near Routes 1 and 136 and asked a police dog to search the vehicle, where they found "multiple pre-packaged baggies" lying on the ground near the drive-through window of National Bank of Rising Sun, according to the sheriff's office.

The substance is suspected to be crack cocaine.

After Oglesby was arrested for possessing, selling and manufacturing drugs, as well as several traffic violations, he had a panic attack twice on the way to the Harford County Detention Center, the Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies found he had swallowed numerous medications along with a small quantity of heroin, the Sheriff's Office said. He was taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air and later released to police custody. He the was later released from jail, after posting $25,000 bond, the Sheriff's Office said,

On Monday, less than 24 hours after being released, Oglesby was back on the street, deputies responded to the first block of James Avenue in Bel Air in response to a report of a stolen vehicle.

The vehicle, described as a 1988 white Dodge work van with Pennsylvania license plates, was seen shortly after at Wawa, in the 600 block of Hoagie Drive in Bel Air, the Sheriff's Office said.

A man identified as Oglesby was detained after he got out of the vehicle. He tried to run from deputies but was immediately apprehended and charged with motor vehicle theft and resisting arrest.

Oglesby's bail was set at $15,000, which he had posted by Tuesday and was once again released from jail, according to online court records.
