Man, 25, charged in 2 burglaries is investigated in dozens of others

April 29, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Howard County police are trying to determine whether a 25-year-old Woodlawn man who was arrested last weekend in connection with two Howard County burglaries is responsible for any of several dozen burglaries dating back to last fall.

The investigation stems from a cache of items found at Demarcos Moore's home in the 2000 block of Summit Ave. as well as items discovered in his van during a search, said Howard County police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn.

She said that although police were able to match some of the items to April burglaries on Mount Hebron Drive in Mount Hebron and Orange Grove Court in Ellicott City, there's "still lots of property left."

Among the items found were stamp and coin collections, jewelry, silverware and laptop computers, she said.

The department is working on the cases with police departments in other jurisdictions, she said.

Moore was charged Sunday with burglary, theft and malicious destruction of property in connection with the two burglaries. He has been released on bond.
