BALTIMORE (April 1, 2011) Maryland State Police today served a warrant on a suspect hospitalized in Baltimore, charging him in connection with yesterdays home invasion in Kent County.
The accused is identified as Timothy C. Brown, 29, of the 300-block of Oyster Catcher Court, Cambridge, Md. Brown is charged with first, third, and fourth degree burglary, first degree assault, two counts of second degree assault, use of a handgun in commission of a violent crime, and motor vehicle theft.
State Police served the charges on Brown this afternoon at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he continues to undergo treatment for a gunshot wound to his arm. A court commissioner held a bond hearing at the hospital and ordered Brown committed to the Baltimore City Detention Center on a $350,000 bond. Brown will remain under police guard until he is released from the hospital and confined in the detention center or posts bail.
Brown is the second suspect charged in connection with the early morning home invasion that occurred yesterday in the 8300-block of Broadneck Road in Chestertown. During a police search for the suspects, it is believed Brown stole a pickup truck from a home about one mile from the scene and, when spotted by deputies, led police on a pursuit into Rock Hall. The pursuit ended shortly after Brown was shot when he attempted to run down the Kent County sheriff.
The investigation is continuing.
