Man breaks into Carroll home


October 24, 2006|By Laura McCandlish

A man broke into a Westminster home Sunday night, demanded money from a female resident while wielding an unknown tool and then fled, state police reported yesterday.

The intruder broke in through a rear sliding door of the house in the 1000 block of Humbert Schoolhouse Road about 10:30 p.m., police said. After walking up the basement stairs and demanding money from the woman, the suspect fled on foot.

The woman was not injured, police said.

The robber might be linked to another crime in which vehicles were ransacked about a half-mile down the road in the 5000 block of Biemiller Road, police said.

Troopers from the Westminster barracks were unable to find the man.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact state police at 410-386-3000.
