One of the residents reviewed camera footage of the home and observed two males with hoods and bandannas enter it before they left with “full book bags and a guitar in each hand," the statement read.
Two males had come to the home Tuesday, knocking on the door before they left, and the residents had pictures of them, according to the statement. Police identified those men as Knight and Smith.
Police observed that one of the men from the Wednesday footage was wearing the same sneakers as a man from the Tuesday pictures, according to the statement. When they located Smith, police also noticed he was wearing the same hat and shoes as one of the men in the video footage, the statement read.
Smith told police that he and Knight had “credit carded” the door and entered the home, taking two guitars before they went to the shed and took a circular saw and hedge clippers, according to the statement. A resident estimated the total value of the items to be $225, the statement read.
Police then located Knight, who said he did it for money, adding he did not have baby formula for his child, the statement read.
The Taneytown Police Department responded to the incident.
