A Tyrone man was being held yesterday on $10,000 bond after a robbery at the house of people who were selling produce at a farmers' market, according to District Court documents.
Matthew A. Follett, 21, of the 1900 block of Tyrone Road was arrested yesterday and charged with two counts of burglary and one count of theft after the break-in at a home in the 3700 block of Littlestown Pike in Union Mills.
Court papers said $936 and an electric drill valued at $150 were stolen. Police said the man told them he knew the house would be vacant while the residents were at a nearby farmers' market.
Shawnee View residents sign anti-shooting petition
About 100 residents of Shawnee View, a neighborhood of about 90 homes near Reese, have signed a petition urging the County Commissioners to bar residents from shooting in residential areas.
Residents are free to fire guns in their back yards unless they live in one of the county's eight municipalities. Several residents, including those in Shawnee View, want to change that.
When residents recently complained of gunplay in their neighbors' yards, Maryland State Police told them Carroll County has no law against shooting firearms in residential areas.
Because the county lacks a charter, the commissioners must go through Carroll's legislative delegation to Annapolis to introduce legislation on the county's behalf. That could happen during the General Assembly session that starts in January.
