Snowplow driver thwarts theft attempt at warehouse

February 13, 2010

A man plowing snow in Glen Burnie prevented two people he suspected had broken into a business from driving away with armloads of clothing, police said. The man was plowing snow from the parking lot of Athletic Warehouse in the first block of Mountain Road about 6:30 a.m. Sunday when he saw two men carrying clothes run from the business, he told police. The plow driver used his truck to block their SUV from leaving, and they ran away, police said. A few minutes later, one man returned to the vehicle and tried to drive away, but the plow driver blocked it again, police said. The man ran toward Rich Morton's Lincoln Mercury dealership, also in the first block of Mountain Road, and was arrested, police said. Robert Stanley Davis, 25, of the 3600 block of Brooklyn Ave., Brooklyn, was charged with second- and fourth-degree burglary and malicious destruction of property.
