Sharpsburg briefs



SHARPSBURG - Washington County Sheriff's deputies are expected to begin filing charges this week against a Sharpsburg man and three juveniles in connection with recent burglaries in southern Washington County, Deputy Marc Yonker said Monday night.

Yonker, the resident deputy for Sharpsburg and Keedysville, updated the Sharpsburg Town Council Monday night about the recent rash of burglaries from homes and cars.

Homes and/or cars in Sharpsburg, Boonsboro, Shepherdstown, W.Va., and possibly Williamsport, were broken into and purses, money and compact discs were stolen, Yonker said.

From one car alone, $1,500 worth of compact discs were stolen, Yonker said.

The Maryland State Police, Shepherdstown, (W.Va.) Police and the Jefferson County (W.Va.) Sheriff's Department also are investigating the burglaries, he said.

SHARPSBURG - The Sharpsburg Town Council was close to wrapping up business at its regular monthly meeting Monday night when it got an unexpected visitor - a snake.

Town resident Mike Pasquerette said he and his wife were walking to Nutter's Ice Cream when they saw the snake at Town Square.

Pasquerette and Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Marc Yonker brought the snake, inside a trash bag, into Town Hall to inform the council of the find.

Yonker said the snake was either a boa or a python. It was black and tan and about 3 feet long.

Deputies could not find an owner for the snake on Monday night.

A pest control company was contacted and was expected to hold onto the snake overnight to give the sheriff's department more time to find the owner.
