Two charged in burglary at Funkstown residence

November 09, 2012

Two Hagerstown residents were charged with burglary and other counts in connection with a breakin at a home in Funkstown on Sunday night, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.

Paul Tierney, 24, of no fixed address, was charged with one count each of first-degree burglary, second- degree assault and two counts of malicious destruction of property, according to sheriff’s office spokeswoman Carly Hose.

Felicia Rudisill, 20, of 220 Alexander St., was charged with one count each of first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.

Hose said deputies were called at 10:52 p.m. for a report of a disturbance at 1 W. Baltimore St. in Funkstown.

When officers arrived, they found Tierney bleeding outside the home.

Hose said Rudisill and Tierney are alleged to have gone to the residence because they believed a person who lived there cheated them in a drug deal involving Percocet pain killer earlier that day.

Deputies said Tierney suffered cuts in the alleged incident. Tierney was taken to Meritus Medical Center east of Hagerstown to be treated for his injuries.

Tierney was being held Monday at the Washington County Detention Center on $40,000 bond, the sheriff’s office said.

Rudisill was free on $10,000 bond.
