Teens charged with Halloween thefts

November 24, 1993

Howard County police have arrested four Columbia youths they say mugged and robbed trick-or-treaters of their candy in Long Reach on Halloween.

The boys, ages 13 to 17, were each charged Saturday with three counts of robbery, assault and battery, and theft. The youths were released into their parents' custody.

No serious injuries were reported in the three attacks, in which the victims were struck and robbed of their candy.

The robberies occurred at the intersection of Lambskin Lane and Bronze Bell, in the 4900 block of Footed Ridge and in the 9100 block of Helaine Hamlet Way.
