Westminster man given 6 1/2 -year term for robbery

September 18, 1998

A Westminster man was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison in Carroll County Circuit Court yesterday after pleading guilty to robbing a Union Bridge liquor store last year.

In the plea arrangement, Kane A. Magruder, 23, of the first block of Church St. was sentenced to 12 years, but Judge William M. Cave suspended all but 6 1/2 years and granted Magruder credit for time served, dating to Jan. 14.

All other charges, including one count of armed robbery, were dropped.

When released, Magruder will serve four years' probation and must pay $3,000 in restitution to Joseph H. Kreimer, owner of Esquire Liquors on West Broadway.

Magruder, whose fingerprint at the liquor store linked him to the robbery, also can seek a sentence modification by Jan. 5, according to court documents.

Volunteer firefighters to discuss ambulance bills

The Taneytown Volunteer Fire Company will hold a public meeting on the proposed ambulance service billing at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the station.

Carroll County volunteer fire companies, through the Carroll County Volunteer Firemen's Association, seek to bill insurance companies for ambulance calls. Four companies already bill for the service.

Parking for the meeting is available behind the fire station at 39 E. Baltimore St.
