City man sentenced for purse snatching

June 09, 2004

A Hagerstown man was sentenced Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court to seven years in state prison on a robbery charge in connection with a July 2003 purse snatching.

Michael Howard Baltimore, 31, whose last known address before his arrest was 431 N. Locust St., Apt. 1, previously pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced Tuesday, a Circuit Court clerk said.

On July 25, 2003, at about 11:58 a.m., a woman shopping at Fountain Head Plaza north of Hagerstown reported that her purse, containing $250 in bills and coins, had been yanked off her shoulder by a man who pulled up to her in a car and asked for directions, according to charging documents.
