Baltimore man gets 15 years in armed robbery of store

A West Baltimore man who pleaded guilty yesterday to an armed robbery of a Sykesville convenience store last March was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Donnell Coles, 30, of the 700 block of Grantley St. was ordered to serve the term concurrent to a Baltimore County sentence for two similar crimes. Police wounded him in the buttocks as he attempted to flee after a March 29 robbery of a Randallstown convenience store.

Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. gave Coles credit for 348 days served, dating to his arrest and incarceration in Baltimore County, which occurred four days after the robbery in Sykesville. Burns recommended that Coles serve his sentence at Patuxent Institute in Jessup.

Offices, warehouse OK'd for conditional use

The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals has approved a conditional use for offices and a warehouse in Eldersburg.

Scott Grice Architects of Columbia made the request for property at 7400 Buttercup Road, zoned "I-G" general-industrial district. The request was made for Enviroserve Inc., a general contracting firm specializing in asbestos and lead abatement.

Enviroserve intends to relocate its offices to Eldersburg for an office for about eight employees and storage of construction equipment. No hazardous materials would be stored at the facility.

The board approved the request, finding no adverse affects on the surrounding area by such use of the property.


Sykesville: Firefighters responded at 6: 24 p.m. Sunday to a trash fire in the 6500 block of Ridge Road. Units were out 20 minutes.


Gamber: A resident of Christy Drive told police that someone stole a citizens band antenna from his vehicle while it was parked outside his home between 6 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Sunday. The loss was estimated at $100.
