Keymar man charged in sex abuse of 3 girls

A Keymar man - charged in July with sexually abusing a girl in May - was arrested again over the weekend and charged with sexually abusing three other girls in the late 1970s and early 1980s, according to Carroll County Deputy State's Attorney David P. Daggett and court documents.

Dean M. Trout, 52, of the 6400 block of Middleburg Road could receive up to 60 years in prison if convicted on charges that include two counts of abusing a child in his custody, two counts of assault with intent to have carnal knowledge of a minor and one count of third-degree sex offense, according to charging documents.

Trout was released from the Carroll County Detention Center yesterday after posting bond, authorities said.

According to court documents, the incidents of sex abuse in the 1970s and 1980s occurred in Keymar, at Keysville Lutheran Church, at Trout's home and at a family farm.

Trout's trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 9.

Goods seized during search

During a routine traffic stop over the weekend, a Harford County sheriff's deputy seized $50,000 worth of clothing, perfume and shoes allegedly stolen from Victoria's Secret.

After stopping a vehicle for speeding on U.S. 40 on Saturday, the deputy discovered nine large bags containing the items, police said. The occupants of the vehicle said they had purchased the items and planned to resell them in New York, but were unable to provide proof of the purchase.

The operator of the vehicle, Luz Elizabeth Solari-Lonandes of Queens, N.Y., received a traffic citation for speeding, though police said she and the three passengers could face charges in connection with the incident depending on the outcome of the investigation.
