Two Ellicott City men were arrested in connection with a car wash burglary in Mount Airy.

Brian Eric Kegg, 19, of the 10200 block of Md. 40, was charged Saturday with two counts of second-degree burglary, one count of malicious destruction of property under $1,000 and theft less than $1,000.

Maryland State Police troopers were called to Ridgeville Carwash, 106 E. Ridgeville Blvd., around 7:40 a.m. June 1 for a burglary. Upon arrival, the troopers viewed surveillance video that showed two white males at the carwash at around 4:45 a.m., according to the statement of charges.
One man appeared to be in his early 20s and wearing a light blue shirt, a maroon hat, white sandals and blue shorts. The other looked to be in his 40s and dressed in black and tan boots, a dark-colored baseball hat, blue shirt, and maroon shorts, according to the statement.
On the video, the two men use a crowbar to open a utility door and a change machine, trying to pry it from the wall. The troopers checked the cash box and saw that an undisclosed amount of cash had been taken, according to the statement.
The troopers worked with a detective from the Howard County Police Department, who said the two men had been arrested in Howard County on June 1 and identified them as Golden and Kegg, according to the statement.
Kegg had been released from the detention center as of 6 p.m. Wednesday. Golden had not been released. A preliminary court date has been set for Golden on Aug. 5 and for Kegg on July 27.
A phone call to the number listed for the residence of Golden and Kegg seeking comment went unanswered.
