WESTMINSTER — Sentence due in theft
WESTMINSTER -- A 19-year-old New Windsor man who in March was found guilty of stealing fishing equipment, a camera and binoculars from two boats in Westminster last May will be sentenced today in Carroll Circuit Court.
David James Fowble Sr., of the 2700 block of Rowe Road, was found guilty of two felony theft charges during his March 25 trial. He pleaded not guilty to the two charges, which carry maximum sentences of 15 years each, but agreed to allow the court to consider only the state's statement of facts. Five remaining charges were dropped.
According to Westminster police, Fowble entered a boat parked on private property in the 300 block of Church St. between May 28 and June 4 and removed three fishing rods, a large tackle box, a 35mm camera, a pair of binoculars and fishing tackle. The items were worth more than $840, court records show.
Fowble also entered another boat parked in the 300 block of Church St., where police say he took three fishing rods, each worth about $100.
Daily shave is shaved
WESTMINSTER -- David Teddy Yoswick showed up in court last week neatly groomed, impeccably dressed and free of facial hair save for a trimmed mustache.
He was ordered not to show up looking that way again.
In granting a motion filed by the State's Attorney's Office, Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. ordered Yoswick -- charged with attempted first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery in connection with the abduction and stabbing of Baltimore businessman Frank A. Storch -- to cease shaving.
The judge agreed with prosecutors that by shaving, Yoswick, a South Carroll High School graduate, would significantly alter his appearance and could hamper the usefulness of a police lineup scheduled for a later date.
An April 15 lineup was canceled because of Yoswick's clean-shaven face.
Yoswick and his girlfriend, Karen Sue Palido, were charged Feb. 28 with the abduction of Storch, a businessman and friend of Gov. William Donald Schaefer. Storch was found along a creek in a park near Sykesville, where police said he was stabbed and left for dead.
A trial date for Yoswick has not been set.
