Troopers say all he had to do was leave their York barracks ...
A Maryland man is facing charges stemming from separate disturbances on back-to-back days in January at an area hotel and at the state police barracks in Loganville.
According to a news release, state police responded to a report of a disorderly man in the lobby of the Hampton Inn at 1000 Far Hills Drive in Hopewell Township on Jan. 23.
Maurice Credle was found to be in possession of marijuana, and he was arrested, police said.
The following day, state police said Credle was at the Loganville barracks, located at 101 N. Main St., to be fingerprinted.
After the process was completed, state police said Credle "refused to leave our barracks after being given several (opportunities) to leave."
He was arrested for trespassing, police said.
Credle, 50, of Edgewood, Maryland, is charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors, and a summary count of disorderly conduct as a result of the hotel disturbance, according to online court documents.
His preliminary hearing is set for 2 p.m. Feb. 19 before District Judge Laura S. Manifold.
In the second case, Credle is charged with a misdemeanor count of defiant trespass at the state police barracks and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 7, before District Judge Lindy Lane Sweeney.
Credle is in the York County Prison on $1,500 bail, according to online court records.
