According to the application for the statement of charges, Crane entered an apartment in the 900 block of Central Avenue June 5, 2018 and took $2,366 in cash and a prescription bottle containing 14 Suboxone strips. The victim, who is known to Crane, initially did not report the theft to police as Crane said he would pay him back, according to the statement.

The victim went to the Boston Inn in Westminster June 6, 2018, where Crane was seen, and began banging on the door, which drew Maryland State Police to the scene, the statement reads. Police suggested the victim file a report, according to the statement.
