Teen arrested on possession, theft charges

April 29, 2001

A 19-year-old Eldersburg woman has been jailed on charges stemming from the theft and pawning of a guitar from her parents' home Thursday, with the proceeds used to buy heroin, according to Maryland State Police at Westminster. Two Eldersburg men also were charged in the case.

The unusual D'Aquisto guitar, valued at about $1,000, was reported stolen from a home in the 5900 block of Snowdens Run Road in Eldersburg, according to police and charging documents. A trooper soon spotted it in the window of a pawnshop, where records showed it had been left for $70.

About two hours later, the trooper saw a 1993 Honda Del Sol at an Eldersburg shopping center, stopped the car on Liberty Road and in the back seat found two hypodermic syringes, one containing clear liquid believed to be heroin, according to the charging documents.

Angela Nicole DiChiara was being held at the Carroll County Detention Center on $6,000 bail on six charges, including burglary, conspiracy, theft and possession of heroin and paraphernalia.

Bail was set at $2,500 for Mark Steven Haga, 21, of the 1100 block of Pouder Road on charges of possession of heroin and paraphernalia. Justin Ryan Weaver, 18, of the 2100 block of Sagebrush Court was released on an unsecured $2,000 bond on charges of theft, conspiracy, possession of heroin and paraphernalia.
