Cockeysville man charged in series of break-ins
WESTMINSTER -- A 23-year-old Cockeysville man was charged yesterday in Carroll County with a series of break-ins Thursday at two homes and several businesses in the Mount Airy and Eldersburg areas.
Keith Michael Black, of the first block of Cedar Tree Court, faces 41 charges, including theft, conspiracy, destruction of property and possession of burglary tools, according to the Maryland State Police.
The investigation began when a man heard noises in his garage in the 6200 block of Wheat Miller Court in Mount Airy about 3 a.m. Thursday and obtained a license plate number from a suspicious car, according to charging documents. Later, thefts or damaged property were reported at a neighboring home, a construction trailer, the Links at Challedon golf course, a Gas & Go, and a skate park -- all in Mount Airy -- and the Freedom Golf Center in Eldersburg.
