News Release: HCPD charges two suspects in Laurel gun store burglary
Howard County police have charged two suspects in the burglary of a Laurel gun store last week, after both were charged in a similar case in Montgomery County. Terrence Massey, 21, of Annapolis, and a 15-year-old male suspect from Glen Burnie, have been charged in warrants for the burglary of Fox Firearms on June 12.
Police were called to Fox Firearms around 2 a.m. and found that a stolen van had crashed through the front of the store. An inventory check later determined that a total of 18 guns were stolen.
During the overnight hours on June 13, a similar case occurred at the United Gun Shop in Rockville. In that incident, Montgomery County police arrested three suspects, including Massey and the 15-year-old juvenile. Through investigation and the discovery of four guns stolen from Fox Firearms, both suspects were connected to the Howard County case.
A third suspect arrested by Montgomery County police has not been charged in the Howard County case at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
Massey is charged in Howard County with burglary, destruction of property, auto theft, reckless endangerment, theft and handgun violations. He is being held without bond in Montgomery County and will be served with the Howard County arrest warrant. The juvenile suspect had been placed in a juvenile detention facility.
Fourteen of the 18 guns stolen in Howard County have not been recovered. Anyone with information should call police at 410-313-STOP or email HCPDcrimetips@howardcountymd.gov.
Montgomery County announced “Arrests Made in Rockville Gun Store Burglary; Deceased Suspect Identified” on June 15th. READ MORE HERE.
Glad arrests are being made…hopefully more are made (if necessary).
Scary that 14 of the 18 guns from this incident and 10 firearms from the incident in MoCo remain unrecovered at this time. That is a lot of stolen guns floating around somewhere.
