March 04, 1997|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,SUN STAFF

State police arrested a fourth person yesterday in the shooting of a Taneytown Pizza Hut delivery woman during an attempted robbery Feb. 20.

Melissa A. Redding, 18, of Taneytown, was being held without bail at the Carroll County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder, attempted armed robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony and first-degree assault.

State police arrested Edward F. "Eddie" Sible, 18; Corey A. Coil, 19; and Leo "Joey" Brandenburg, 17, all of Taneytown, on similar charges Thursday.

All are being held without bail at the detention center, court records show.

Linda A. Bond, 47, of Westminster, the Pizza Hut driver, was discharged over the weekend from the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, her son said yesterday.

Bond was shot in the right shoulder with a .22-cal. pistol, police said.

The bullet traveled downward and lodged behind her liver, police said.

Police said the four planned the robbery because they wanted to go to the movies and one of the men did not have enough money.
