Inmate charged in more burglaries


A Hagerstown man already jailed in connection with four Washington County burglaries has been charged with two more, police said.

Douglas James Hadaway, 34, of 214 Garlinger Avenue, Hagerstown has been held at Washington County Detention Center since Oct.12.

He was charged with the Oct. 7 burglary of Stop & Shop Liquor in Leitersburg and the Aug. 23 burglary of Byer's Market and Decisions, Decisions in Williamsport by the Washington County Sheriff's Department.

Hagerstown City Police also charged Hadaway with the burglary of Dave and Pat's Tavern.

On Thursday, deputies charged Hadaway with the Sept. 2 burglary of Holsinger's Meat Market in Maugansville and the Sept. 5 burglary of Godlove's Liquors in Hagerstown.

Deputies said Hadaway entered Holsinger's Meat Market through a window and ransacked the business, taking money and shrimp. Damages were estimated to be more than $300.


Deputies allege Hadaway forced his way into Godlove's Liquors and made off with money, cigarettes and liquor.

Hadaway was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary, three counts of fourth-degree burglary, three counts of theft more than $300, four counts of theft less than $300 and malicious destruction of property.

Washington County Sheriff's Department said they linked Hadaway with the crimes from evidence found at the scene.

Deputies said an alarm at Byer's Market went off during the early morning hours of Aug. 23.

Investigators found a burglar had entered a garage that led to Byer's Market and Decisions/Decisions.

The burglar fled after tripping the alarm and Monty Jones, the owner of Byer's, told police he saw a small red car leaving the area.

Damage to the building was estimated at more than $700.

Deputies said they were continuing their investigation and more charges may be pending.
