Two men face charges after laptop thefts on UM campus

The University of Maryland Police have recently arrested a 20-year-old man and a 38-year-old man following an investigation into two separate incidents in late 2012 in which laptop computers were stolen on campus. The suspects now face theft charges and possible time in custody. The first crime happened when a student left his laptop out in the open at a campus study area in November 2012. When he came back about 60 minutes later, the computer was missing. University Police identified the 20-year-old man as a suspect, but when confronted with evidence that involved him in the case, he denied that he knew about the theft. However, police took him into custody. The laptop was not recovered. He faces theft charges of between $1,000 and $10,000 and could receive a prison term of up to 10 years. He has a prior charge for possession of drug paraphernalia although it is unknown if he was convicted in that case.

Suspect faces theft charges after selling stolen items

A 23-year-old suspect was taken into custody recently on outstanding warrants for selling stolen items to a pawn shop in Camp Springs. He faces two felony theft charges for stealing the merchandise, which was valued at about $1,350. The pawn store reportedly paid him just over $200 for the property, including portable electronics and jewelry. In November of 2012, law enforcement personnel connected the defendant and his partner to stolen items through a lost cell phone, which contained text messages sent to the co-defendant. Beginning in October, the pair were suspected to have broken into a minimum of six homes in the White Oak area and believed to have stolen electronics, jewelry and guns. In one notable incident, one of the victims allegedly awoke to find the co-defendant in his home. Although the thief fled with $60 in cash, in the process he lost his cell phone and items that were later determined to have been stolen.
