A Taneytown man is being held without bond after he was arrested on burglary charges eight days after he was arrested and charged with armed robbery.

Steven Michael Rousseau, 23, of the unit block of East Baltimore Street, is charged with third- and fourth-degree burglary, trespassing, and conspiracy to commit malicious destruction of property, according to electronic court files.


Police responded to a Middle Street house at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when a neighbor reported someone breaking into it, according to a spokesman from the Taneytown Police Department.

Officers responded and caught three suspects, Rousseau and two juveniles, inside the house, according to the spokesman. All three suspects were arrested and the underage suspects were charged as juveniles.

Nothing was reported stolen from the house and police say it might have been vacant.

Rousseau was previously arrested June 22 and charged with armed robbery and related offenses, along with three other suspects, for an alleged robbery at knifepoint that occurred in Memorial Park, according to court records.

Rousseau was released from the Carroll County Detention Center on June 23 on $10,000 bond.
