CLEAR SPRING — Police on Monday arrested a man in connection with a burglary in Clear Spring after they found a vehicle in Williamsport that contained burglar tools and a rifle that was stolen in the crime, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Michael James Morris, 20, of no fixed address, was charged with first- and second-degree burglary, theft over $1,000, possession of controlled dangerous substance paraphernalia and possession of burglar tools, police said.
At 8:45 a.m. Monday, officers responded to a property in the 12000 block of Cove Road in Clear Spring for a report of a burglary, according to a news release.
