Robbery linked to Maryland man nearly a decade later

Have you been charged with a crime like robbery? Maybe you are facing a
charge for assault or a form of violence. You have a right to speak your
mind and to tell your story to those who need to hear it. You shouldn’t
have to face unjust penalties or charges, and with some legal help, you
may be able to protect your reputation, too.

Burglary may be charged as a felony or misdemeanor, but it’s more likely
to be a felony when it involves violence. In this case, the man being
charged could potentially face different levels of charges, although it’s
not clear which charges he’ll have filed against him yet or to what
degree. The man from Maryland has allegedly been DNA linked to a robbery
that took place in 2005.

The 32-year-old man would have been just 23 when the burglary took place
at the local Adams County archery club. He’s going to be charged
with the conspiracy to commit burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief,
theft and burglary.

The police in Maryland have said that the charges were only placed after
the man’s DNA profile matched some blood evidence that had been
found at the Gettysburg Archery Club in Mount Pleasant Township. That
blood was allegedly found shortly after the burglary around nine years ago.

Police have not reported on what was stolen at the time of the robbery,
but they claim that the man they took into custody did admit to the crime.
The crime took place between June 3 and June 6 in 2005, and it’s
not clear what led to the man confessing to the burglary.
