A Finksburg man was charged yesterday afternoon for stealing from several unlocked vehicles parked at private homes in the Finksburg area, according to a press release.
Cody David Pierce, 22, was charged with theft, fourth degree burglary, and "rogue and vagabond," for the theft of cash, jewelry, electronics and other valuables taken from several unlocked vehicles, according to the release.
At least eight residents along Turnberry Court and Lawndale Road in Finksburg reported thefts from their vehicles overnight on Nov. 12 and into the early morning of Nov. 13.
Sheriff’s deputies were led to Pierce after witnesses reported his vehicle speeding away from where deputies found a wallet belonging to a Finksburg victim along a remote New Windsor roadway last Tuesday, according to the release.
Sheriff’s Deputies serving a search and seizure warrant at Pierce’s home Sunday recovered items belonging to several of the theft victims.
Pierce was released by the District Court Commissioner on personal recognizance pending trial. The Sheriff’s Office investigation continues and additional charges are pending. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 410-386-2900, or the toll free anonymous TIPS Hotline at 1-888-399-TIPP (8477).
