Stolen car driven to meeting at court

April 29, 1993|By Katherine Richards | Katherine Richards,Staff Writer

Two people were arrested yesterday and another was at large after they went to the Carroll County Courthouse in a stolen car so one of the three could go the community service office.

Cpl. Rick May, a Westminster police spokesman, said the car was seen parked outside the courthouse, at 55 N. Court St., at 2:38 p.m. That was less than half an hour after state police told city authorities to be on the lookout for the stolen vehicle, which was believed to be in Westminster.

Three people were observed in the car, but when police arrived at the courthouse only two could be found. The third apparently had fled.

Police arrested Sharon M. Moals, 18, of the 100 block of S. Center St. in Westminster, and Cory Davis, 23, of Edmondson Avenue in Baltimore. Both of them were charged with possession of stolen property. They were sent to the county detention center last night on $10,000 and $25,000 bond, respectively.

The third suspect was still at large, police said.

The car, a 1985 Mercedes-Benz registered to an Ellicott City man, was reported stolen in an armed carjacking April 21 in Baltimore, authorities said, but no details of that incident were available last night.

Ms. Moals was detained by Carroll County sheriff's deputies until police arrived, Corporal May reported. Mr. Davis was apprehended inside the courthouse.

Corporal May said there was no chase.

It was unclear last night which of the suspects had come to the courthouse to visit the community service office.

Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration records show that the car is registered to Donald Sinclair Lowe of Ellicott City.
