Annapolis police arrested a man for stealing items out of a car and dousing clothing in the trunk with gasoline, according to a police report.
Police charged Anthony Greco, 22, of the 3700 block of Danube Drive in Davidsonville, with three counts rogue and vagabond and three counts of theft of less than $1,000. Officers additionally arrested Samuel Allen Kalashian, 22, of Annapolis, on similar charges, according to online court records.
According to the Annapolis Police Department, officers received a call around 4:40 a.m. Sunday about a person breaking into vehicles near Franklin and Cathedral streets. A responding officer saw Kalashian and approached him because he matched the description provided by witnesses.
While searching Kalashian, the police officer found a GPS device, headphones and an iPhone charger. Suspecting that the items were stolen, the officer questioned Kalashian about why he was walking around so early in the morning. Kalashian said he was looking for his friend (Greco), according to police.
About the same time, another officer arrested Greco in another area after responding to the same call.
Through an investigation, police learned that the GPS device belonged to a woman who said she had left her vehicle unlocked overnight, and had several items stolen. The woman told police someone stole a GPS and black LG phone charger from her Honda, items both found on Kalashian and Greco, according to the report.
Officers also learned that someone had poured gasoline over the woman’s clothing with a small red gas can she kept in the trunk.
“While ransacking her vehicle, Mr. Kalashian and Mr. Greco removed the top [of the gas can] and poured the gas all over her clothing and other items in the trunk,” the police report alleged.
