A prospective burglar was allegedly caught wrench-handed this morning at a Maryland Avenue rental business, Hagerstown Police Department Sgt. Fred Wolford said.

At 2:57 a.m., Officer Charles Coy was dispatched to Prime Time Rentals, at 1003 Maryland Ave., to check out a burglar alarm, Wolford said. When Coy got to the store, he heard "metal to metal contact" coming from the back of the business, Wolford said.

"He observed a subject on his knees beside the metal doors ... He had a metal object about 10 inches long in his right hand," Wolford said.

The object was later identified as a 10-inch adjustable wrench. The man complied when he was ordered to drop it, Wolford said.

Everett was being held at the Hagerstown Police Department this morning awaiting an appearance before a Washington County District Court commissioner, Wolford said.
