Suspect in car chase captured in drug raid

March 03, 1994

An 18-year-old man from Littlestown, Pa., wanted by state police in connection with several burglaries and a stolen car chase from Hampstead to Westminster on Friday, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and burglary of Harry's Lunch by Westminster police Tuesday.

Robert Carter Shore, who lives in the 4600 block of Baltimore Pike, was found at the Comfort Inn on Route 140 when city police, who had a search and seizure warrant, conducted a raid.

They arrested six people, including a 16-year-old female, on drug charges.

Police said Mr. Shore was charged with a break-in that occurred at the restaurant in the first block of W. Main St. on Dec. 17.

He was held on $50,000 bond at the Carroll County Detention Center and additional arrests in the burglary are expected, police said.

State investigators said Mr. Shore will be charged with burglary and theft in connection with incidents in Carroll County other than those inside the city limits.

Charges were expected to be filed today.

Charles Edward Shoop, 22, of Howard County, is being held at the detention center on $10,000 bond.

He was arrested at Cranberry Mall on Friday after the stolen car chase.
