A Finksburg man and woman were arrested Monday on charges of breaking into an Upperco residence after a neighbor alerted the homeowner's daughter that a strange car was backed up to her father's house.
According to court records, Lisa Zumbrun, daughter of Ronald Zumbrun, received the call about 12: 15 p.m. and went to her father's home, where she found a Toyota Celica parked in the driveway and occupied by a young woman.
Zumbrun said the woman honked the car's horn, ran to the back of the house, returned and smiled as she began to drive away.
Zumbrun said she also saw a man run from the house and get into the Toyota.
Police traced the car to a residence in the 2200 block of Baltimore Blvd. and arrested Amber D. Ashe, 19, of that address and Dennis B. Jennings, 23, of the same block.
Ashe and Jennings were charged with first- and third-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property and theft over $300.
Tfc. Andrew Eways said in a statement that it was possible no items were taken from the house, pending an inventory by the homeowner, but said damage to a garage door, enclosed patio and kitchen door exceeded $300.
Jennings declined a bail review hearing yesterday, court records show. He is being held at Carroll County Detention Center in lieu of a $25,000 full bond.
Ashe was released yesterday on an unsecured $5,000 bond.
