Glen Burnie pair accused of fraud
A Glen Burnie man and a juvenile have been charged with falsely reporting to police that they had been victims of an armed robbery.
Their report on Thursday led county police to arrest a Baltimore man, who was released later in the day when the alleged fraud was discovered, police said.
Leo Anthony Weigand, 19, of the 6400 block of Centennial Circle in Glen Burnie, and a juvenile were charged in the incident.
Police said the two told authorities that they had been assaulted and robbed in the parking lot of Giant Food on Mountain Road. They gave a description and the license plate number of a van, which police stopped on the Key Bridge.
The driver of the van, Tod Louis Moberly, 29, of Baltimore, was arrested based on information police had from the apparent victims.
But police said that when they interviewed the Glen Burnie man and the juvenile separately, their stories did not match. The two admitted making a false report, police said.
Mr. Moberly was released without charge.
