Baltimore County police arrested a suspect Tuesday in the killing of an Owings Mills man in August.
Acting on a grand jury indictment, police arrested Gerald Edward Sears, 30, of the 2300 block of Wheatley Road, near Leakin Park in Baltimore. He is charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and using a handgun in the commission of a felony.
The body of Scott M. Greenberg, 51, was found by his ex-wife Aug. 22 in his parents' home in the 2300 block of Velvet Valley Way, where he had been living.
Greenberg, who ran a snowball stand on Reisterstown Road and had previously worked as a counselor and recruiter at his parents' summer camp in West Virginia, was convicted in 1991 of a fourth-degree sexual offense against a 9-year-old boy who was to attend the camp. Last year, Greenberg was charged with second-degree assault after a young woman filed a complaint, according to Baltimore County District Court records. The case was not prosecuted.
Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey said Wednesday that no further details about the case against Sears would be immediately released, citing grand jury secrecy.
Toohey said Sears was being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
