An Ellicott City man has been charged in connection with the burglary of an candy shop on Main Street after being discovered by a real estate agent burglarizing another residence, according to Howard County Police.

Wayne Weldon Blackwell, 25, of the 9900 block of Frederick Road, is charged with fourth-degree burglary in connection with a theft from Sweet Cascade's Candy Shop on Saturday, Feb. 23.

According to police, the burglar entered the business in between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. by throwing a rock through the glass doorway of the candy shop. 

Once inside, the burglar stole cash from the register, a jar containing money and a laptop computer, police said.

The next day, police arrested Blackwell after a real estate agent found a man matching his description inside a residence in the 3600 block of Fels Lane. 

Police said they found property from the candy shop robbery on Blackwell's person.
