Man arrested, charged in Annapolis dealership break-in

Anne Arundel County police arrested and charged one man in a Christmas morning break-in at an Annapolis automobile dealership.

A video security service notified police shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday of two people on the lot of Fitzgerald Oldsmobile Cadillac. Officers saw two men running, and arrested one when he tried to climb over a fence, said Lt. Doyle Batten.

Police found bolt cutters and other tools on the lot that they suspect were used to cut catalytic converters from two vehicles there. They also found an unoccupied tow truck, its engine running, on the shoulder of eastbound Route 50.

Police charged John Marcellius Johnson, 35, from Washington, with destruction of property and fourth-degree burglary. They are seeking a second person. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-222-1961.
