Teens arrested, charged in burglaries


Taneytown police have arrested two teen-agers after a series of break-ins in the city between Feb. 23 and Saturday.

City Police Chief Mel Diggs said Nolan Buck Hawkins, 18, of the 1000 block of Circle Drive, Detour, was charged with burglary, theft, malicious destruction of property and conspiracy. His bond, initially set at $50,000, was reduced to $2,500 at a bail review hearing Tuesday. He was being held at the Carroll County Detention Center yesterday evening.

Officers said juvenile petitions have been filed against a 17-year-old and he was released to his parents.

Police had arrested Lawrence Richard Horner, 19, of the 200 block of Roth Ave., Saturday night after an altercation where a teen-ager suffered a fractured nose.

When apprehended, the man had a pocket full of coins and baseball cards in another pocket.

Officers Ed Engel and Tim Gressen and Cpl. Mark Lott questioned the man and learned the baseball cards were stolen from the Sheetz market on East Baltimore Street. Four shops were broken into within one hour before the man was arrested at 10:35 p.m., police said. His bond was set at $100,000, and he remained in the county detention center yesterday evening.
