Three men, who allegedly took the keys to a 1993 Chevrole Corsica from the counter of the Eldersburg Inn and stole the car outside, were released Friday on $25,000 unsecured bond.

The car was stolen Thursday night at the bar, at Routes 32 and 26, state police said.

Troopers arrested the three shortly after 9 p.m., after the car ran into a ditch on the parking lot of a convenience store west of Eldersburg. Two men were arrested at the store. Police said the driver fled into nearby woods but was captured by troopers when he came out near Klee Mill Road. No one was injured in the accident, police said.

Apparently unknown to the three men, the Corsica had electronic components valued at $30,000 in the trunk, police said.

The driver, Louis Scott Stanton, 27, of the 300 block of Butler Road in Reisterstown was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving under the influence of alcohol, theft, conspiracy to commit theft, negligent driving and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, police said.

Jeffery Mitchell Buckholz, 28, of the 1600 block of Brimfield Circle in Eldersburg and David Brian Kelly, 18, of Baltimore were charged with theft and conspiracy to commit theft.
