Three young men were arrested and charged with stealing Christmas ornaments from the lawns of four houses in the Gamber area Wednesday morning.

Brian R. Grimsley, 19, of the 7300 block of Springfield Ave.; Chad R. Clark, 19, of the 6000 block of Oakland Mills Road; and Christopher M. Flora, 18, of the 3400 block of Nottingham Road, were released on personal recognizance after their arrest about 1:15 a.m.

State police said they received several calls about an automobile pulling into driveways in the Gamber area, and the occupants jumping out, grabbing lawn ornaments and fleeing.

Police said that when they stopped a car on Niner Road matching the description given by one of the callers, they found the stolen ornaments in the vehicle.

Police said the items were valued at about $375 and were returned to the homeowners.
