Man is charged with auto theft
A Prince George's County man has been charged with stealing a car and fleeing from police after officers found him in the back yard of a Severn home early yesterday morning.
According to the police report, the car, a 1990 white Nissan Maxima, belonged to a Hanover woman who told officers that Gary Alan Singley, 25, of Largo, had borrowed the car before and had offered to give her some crack cocaine if he could use the car again. The woman refused.
Police spotted the car and Singley on Richfield Drive shortly after 1 a.m. They tried to stop Singley, but he pulled the car into a parking lot and ran to the back yard of a home in the 8200 block of Parham Court, police said.
The officers heard glass breaking and thought Singley had broken into the home.
They knocked on the door and told a 31-year-old man living there to leave the house.
A few minutes later, Singley came out of the house through the back door, police said.
He also was charged with breaking and entering, police said.
