It is believed that while the alleged victims were speaking with one of the men outside, the second man or a possible third unknown individual entered the residence and committed the theft, according to Cpl. Jonathan Light, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

Light said the Sheriff's Office is not releasing any details about the items taken, including their value, at this time.

The men are described as Hispanic, one 60 years old, 6 feet tall, 200 pounds; the second 40 years old, 5 feet tall, 180 pounds, according to the release. Both spoke with accents and the younger man referred to the older man as "Pop."

The men drove west on Middleburg Road in a newer model Chevrolet pickup truck with chrome linings and a large clear plastic tank and white buckets in the bed, according to the release.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective William Murray at 410-386-2564 or wmurray@ccg.carr.org.
