Glen Burnie Man Arrested after Rash of “Smash and Grab” Burglaries

Suspect Detained for Spate of “Smash and Grab” Burglaries

After a September 20 robbery at Parks Liquors in Deale, police used surveillance video evidence to identify the motor vehicle used in the crime. When they stopped a vehicle matching that description, they located tools in the car that they believe were used in the liquor store robbery as well as a number of similar “smash and grab” burglaries of small businesses throughout Anne Arundel County, reported The Baltimore Sun.

According to authorities, the suspect had a tire iron and used it to break the front-door glass at nine businesses across the county. The first known robbery, at a Starbucks in Severna Park, occurred on July 28. Though the first three break-ins all took place in Severna Park, police believe the suspect then moved to other locations in the county, from Gambrills to Glen Burnie to Edgewater. The suspect, a 54-year-old male, apparently lives in Glen Burnie. Police say that their investigation is not closed and that there may be other unsolved robberies tied to the suspect.
