January 23, 1996

A 29-year-old Finksburg man is in the Carroll County Detention Center on charges of burglary, conspiracy and car theft at the Encore restaurant Saturday morning.

Daniel Scott Waddell of the 2800 block of Old Westminster Pike is also charged with malicious destruction of property worth more than $300 and theft of more than $300. His bail was reduced from $25,000 to $10,000 full bond yesterday.

According to police, three people broke the glass-paned front door at the Old Westminster Pike restaurant about 6:15 a.m. Saturday. Police said more than $3,000 was taken from the cash register.

About five hours later, at 11:30 a.m., Kevin Richardson called state police to report that his 1984 Chevrolet Caprice Classic, which he had parked at the Encore, had been stolen.

Mr. Richardson, who was staying with a friend who lives near the restaurant, also told police the friend also was missing.

Sunday morning, police said, the friend came to the state police barracks in Westminster and said he had just stolen a car. The man also said he had broken into the restaurant with two others, whom he didn't name, police said.
