Equipment stolen in break-in

WALKERSVILLE, Md. - Numerous antique items were taken from a home on Devilbliss Bridge Road last week, Maryland State Police said Sunday.

The home, which is at the corner of Devilbliss Bridge Road and Md. 194, was burglarized between May 26 and June 1, police said.

The house, garage and barn were burglarized, police said.

The stolen items include antique farm equipment, cherry twin beds, five antique fireplace mantels and other items.

Witnesses saw a red or maroon compact-to-mid-size car in the driveway at about 1:30 p.m. Ten minutes later, the car was gone, police said.


Due to the size, weight and quantity of the items, police believe several people were involved and that a truck or pickup truck was involved.

Investigators have sent evidence collected at the scene to the Maryland State Police Crime Lab in Pikesville, Md., authorities said.

Police are asking antique dealers and furniture shops in the Tri-State area to be on the lookout for solid wood antique fireplace materials.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Maryland State Police at 301-663-3101.
