Bethany Beach museum looking for items

The Bethany Beach Cultural and Historical Affairs Committee (CHAC) is preparing for the re-opening of the town museum in its new quarters in the town hall, and members are seeking artifacts pertinent to the history of Bethany Beach for addition to the town’s collection.

Those who have items that could be of value to the museum are being asked to bring the items to the meeting room in Bethany Beach town hall between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 21.

Items can be donated to the museum for its permanent collection or loaned for possible display for any period of time. The only criteria for the artifacts is that they be pertinent specifically to the town’s history and not merely artifacts relating to general life in the wider area.

The museum is expected to reopen with new displays, display cases and features by Memorial Day weekend.

Frankford man arrested on drug charges

Fenwick Island police arrested a 28-year-old Frankford man April 29 after an officer reportedly observed him driving erratically in the area of Route 1 and Route 54.

After initially spotting the vehicle moving erratically, Pfc. Jason Bergman reported seeing it proceed west on Route 54 and then make an abrupt right turn on a small side street, pulling into a parking lot at Route 54 and Bennett Street.

According to Fenwick Island Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. W.H. Boyden, Bergman then approached the driver and observed him eating a green plant material believed to be marijuana.

Boyden said Bergman identified himself as a police officer and ordered the driver out of the vehicle. According to Bergman, the man (later identified as Scott Gerald Brasure of Frankford) refused to exit the vehicle and appeared to be highly intoxicated.

Brasure was placed into custody and charged with driving a vehicle under the influence, possession of marijuana, consumption of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a summons.
