Vandals break pipes, flood 3 new homes in northern Howard

October 07, 1998

After a two-month respite, vandals have again struck at newly constructed houses in northern Howard County, breaking pipes and causing severe flooding, police said.

On Sunday or Monday, vandals entered three homes in the 8700 block of Stonehouse Drive and broke the water pipes, police said.

"It is probably the same people" who vandalized at least 14 houses this summer, said Sgt. Morris Carroll, a police spokesman.

Police also reported that arson fires late Thursday damaged four townhouses in the 6800 block of Sanctuary Court in Elkridge.
