Polcie say they found Daniel Conticchio, 27, sleeping in his car in the parking lot that serves the Wildwood Shopping Center at Old Georgetown Road and Democracy Boulevard in Bethesda.
Jesica Rivas, 22, was also in Conticchio’s vehicle. She was arrested and charged with possession of CDS paraphernalia.
Police had a warrant issued Wednesday for Conticchio, who is from DC, after he apparently sold damaged sculptures from the Philip Ratner Museum Of Art to a scrap and recycling store in Rockville early Saturday morning. Police say Conticchio left his driver’s license behind and a store representative contacted police.
Police say Rivas was with Conticchio when he sold the damaged art works as scrap metal.
