July 30, 1996

At least nine cars parked at a Glen Burnie hotel were vandalized and several hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise taken from them early Sunday before a hotel security guard chased away two men county police said yesterday.

Keith Hill, a security guard for the Holiday Inn in the 6300 block of Ritchie Highway, was checking the lot about 4 a.m. when he spotted the pair and chased them away, police said. Hill called police, then checked the lot and found nine cars had been broken into.

The thieves used a screwdriver to force out the passenger-side window, then ransacked glove boxes and trunks, police said. They stole a 35 mm camera and history books from one car, three gold rings, together valued at $1,500 from another and a cellular phone valued at $650 from a third, police said.

The same night, someone used the same method to break into a car parked nearby at Park Plaza Motel and stole $33 and a cellular phone.
