Man held in liquor store break-in

December 05, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A man wanted by authorities in two other counties was arrested early yesterday near Westminster after a break-in at a liquor store, police said.

When a man asked for directions from a state trooper late Wednesday and again a few hours later, the officer became suspicious and followed him to the parking lot of the Twin Arch Shopping Center in the 1000 block of Arch Road, state police said.

Tfc. Shawn Needham said he saw the man back his truck to the front of the Twin Arch Spirits Liquor Store about 3 a.m., run into the store and return quickly to his vehicle. Needham followed the man's truck, and another trooper verified that a store window was shattered and that a burglary had apparently taken place, police said.

Needham arrested the man and found a cash register in his truck, police said. Before pulling him over, Needham saw the man throw something from the vehicle, police said. A second cash register was later recovered, police said.

Timothy Sean Traynor, 36, of the 7500 block of Montevideo Court, Jessup, was charged with one count each of burglary, theft and destruction of property, police said. The suspect has been named in two arrest warrants involving burglaries in two other counties, police said, but further details were not available last night.
