October 23, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Police are searching for a 21-year-old Montgomery County man accused of fatally shooting a Baltimore-area man last week and hiding the body with the aid of friends.

Police said they have an arrest warrant charging Robert "Bobby" Clebe Foard II of the 17300 block Haw Lane in Ashton with first-degree murder in the shooting of David M. Harris, 20, at Foard's home Tuesday night.

Montgomery County police declined to name sources, but said the killing was reported the next day by a person who claimed to have witnessed it. However, officers could not find a body.

Police said they learned the location of a burial site Friday from another source and found Harris' remains in Ashton, a short distance from the alleged shooting scene. Detectives said they were told by the second source that at least nine people knew about the killing and that several at the Haw Lane home at the time of the shooting helped move the body and bury it.

Harris' address was listed by police in the 12400 block Lime Kiln Road, Fulton, but his mother, Laura Harris, said her son lived with his father, John Harris, in the 8600 block Willow Run Road, Woodlawn, in Baltimore County.

Funeral services are scheduled at 10 a.m. tomorrow at Immanuel's Church, 16819 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring. David Harris is also survived by a brother, Daniel, of Howard County.

A $1,000 reward is being offered by Montgomery County Crime Solvers for information leading to an arrest and indictment. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 in Montgomery County before calling the Crime Solvers tip line at 800-673-2777.
