Three stolen rifles, safe recovered by police from Manchester pond

January 29, 1998

Three stolen rifles and a stolen safe were recovered Tuesday from a pond in a Manchester town park, town Police Chief Timothy Timmons said.

Timmons called the Maryland State Police after town maintenance workers saw personal papers -- including marriage and birth certificates and Social Security cards -- floating in a pond at Christmas Tree Park. He said a state police diver recovered three rifles and a white safe from the pond.

Maryland State Police at the Westminster barracks and the Baltimore County police department identified the items as stolen property from two burglaries, one in northern Baltimore County and one outside Manchester, Timmons said. Police investigating the cases from the two jurisdictions could not be reached for comment yesterday.
