November 01, 1994

Two Mount St. Mary's College students have been arrested and charged in the attempted burglary of the closed Havilah Inn in Taneytown.

Taneytown police said yesterday that intruders used a crowbar in an attempt to break into the Taneytown Pike restaurant Sunday afternoon. An alarm was tripped, and Taneytown Sgt. Gregory Woelfel went to the scene. Minimal damage was reported.

Charged with attempted burglary are Robert C. O'Connell of Runnymede, N.J., and Brendan Patrick Flynn of Potomac. Both are 20 and students at the Emmitsburg college.

They were released Sunday on $25,000 bond, which was posted by each man's parents.

Havilah Inn closed this year amid financial problems. It had been a local landmark for many years.
