Man charged in thefts held on $100,000 bail


A Westminster man accused of stealing three all-terrain vehicles and a motorcycle was held yesterday at the county jail in lieu of bails totaling $100,000, court records showed.

Jeffrey Scott Bartholomey, 36, of the 600 block of Gist Road was arrested early Tuesday in Westminster, but state police were unable to identify him until his fingerprints were submitted to the FBI for verification, according to charging documents.

Bartholomey was charged on counts of burglary, theft over $300, obstruction of justice and giving a false statement to police. The alleged thefts occurred in Hampstead and Westminster on Sunday and Tuesday.

Bail was set at $50,000.

Bartholomey also was held on two bails of $25,000 each stemming from outstanding warrants from Baltimore and Frederick counties. Those cases involved the unauthorized taking of a Geo Tracker in May and a Dodge Ram truck in April, court records show.
