Dog helps find suspect in robbery

August 27, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

County police called their dog Sunday on two men in Glen Burnie who were wearing the wrong clothes at the wrong time after a robbery.

Officers caught one man in a shopping center parking lot on Hospital Drive and sent Bubba, the police dog, into nearby woods to track down the other because their clothing fit the vague description of two armed robbers who had hit a fast food restaurant about an hour earlier.

Both men were wearing white tops and baggy blue jeans, the same outfits worn by the men who held up the Hardee's restaurant at Crain Highway and Hospital Drive shortly before 11 p.m., when Officer William W. Merkle spotted them in a Rite Aid parking lot half a block away.

When Merkle approached the men, they ran across Crain Highway toward the rear of Star Billiards, police said.

Merkle said he saw one of them toss something into a trash can. Another officer caught one of the men as he ran into the billiard hall, and police flooded the area with officers and brought in Bubba to search the woods for the other man, police said.

When Bubba caught the second man, police said they found on him a barber kit and three packs of Kool-Aid that had been stolen from the store.

The items that had been stolen were valued at $23.72.

Mickelle Cedric Hayes, 39, of the 1000 block of Revell Highway in Annapolis and Tony O'Shea Hicks, 27, of the 900 block of Dogwood Tree Drive in Annapolis were charged with theft.
