A 20-year-old Sharpsburg man accused of stealing rare coins last fall is charged in two separate cases with burglary and theft, according to Washington County District Court records.

Charles Arlen Gross, of 5022 General Branch Court, was being held Wednesday evening at Washington County Detention Center, a jail employee said. He is charged in the two cases with four counts of first-degree burglary, three counts of fourth-degree burglary, two counts each of theft of items valued at more than $500 and theft of items valued at less than $500 and one count each of malicious destruction of property and third-degree burglary.

According to a charging document, Gross allegedly stole two bottles of vodka and rare money, including uncirculated state quarters and $2 bills, from the home of a woman he was staying with on Mills Road in Sharpsburg last year, according to a charging document.

In another case, Gross is accused of burglarizing homes on West Antietam Street and General Lee Drive in Sharpsburg. He allegedly destroyed a safe at one of the homes, and he is accused of stealing rolled coins, a check and change, a charging document states.
