Howard County police arrested and charged a Baltimore man in connection with two burglaries of a hair salon in Ellicott City.
About 3: 30 a.m. Friday, Sgt. John Mitchell noticed an Oldsmobile leaving the Hair Cuttery in the 9200 block of Baltimore National Pike, police said.
A similar car was seen leaving the shop May 29 after a burglary, police said.
Mitchell pulled the car over while another officer inspected the Hair Cuttery. The store's front door had been smashed and the office ransacked.
A search of the car revealed a pay phone, coins and a money wrapper, police said. Police also said that the man was bleeding, and that blood was found inside the salon.
Robert Bruce Urben, 32, of the 800 block of Clyde Ave. in Baltimore, was charged with two counts of commercial burglary, two counts of destruction of property, two counts of theft and many motor vehicle violations, police said.
