A Mount Airy man accused of buying malt liquor that police say contributed to a crash that killed three teen-agers in Carroll County a year ago was in the county jail yesterday on $2,500 bond.
Carroll Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold ordered the bail yesterday for Milton Stanley Bowens Jr. Mr. Bowens, 25, was indicted by a Carroll County grand jury June 1.
He is charged in the indictment with buying a case of St. Ives malt liquor at a Mount Airy liquor store and giving it to two of eight teen-agers -- including the unlicensed driver -- who crammed into a stolen Toyota Corolla. A few hours later, the car flipped on Liberty Road near the Baltimore County line.
Mr. Bowens of the 1100 block of Shaffersville Road, Howard County, was arrested by Maryland State Police on Wednesday. He is charged with two counts of furnishing alcohol to minors and one count of reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum five-year prison term.
Mount Airy: An employee of the Ridgeville Car Wash, in the 100 block of E. Ridgeville Blvd., reported to state police that someone broke into a change machine and stole $300 in coins June 19.
