Man charged with Beltone burglary


Brian Keith Lee, 29, of New Windsor, was arrested and charged with two counts of burglary and theft from the Beltone Hearing Aid Service on Oct. 18.

Richard King, owner of the shop in the first block of East Main Street, said his business in downtown Westminster has been broken into on three occasions in the one year he has been at the corner of East Main Street and Railroad Ave.
