Checkers burglars unmasked

CALIFORNIA, MD. (Aug. 26, 2014)  — St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron reports that the long arm of the law caught up with two miscreants who are now on the fast track to prison unless they get lenient treatment from one of Maryland’s many liberal judges.

The two clowns caught robbing Checkers located on Rt. 235 in California, were wearing masks when found by deputies inside the burger joint.  The masks were clearly intended for the benefit of the security cameras as the popular burger and shake establishment was closed and there were no employees around to notice the format of their faces.

The cops must have scared these twits as they beat feet, slipping out the drive-in windows as the cops must have had the doorways covered.

According to the Sheriff, on 08-25-14 at approximately 0345 hours Dep. Lefave responded to an interior intrusion alarm at the Checkers on Miramar Way in California, Maryland. Dep. Lefave approached the location on foot and observed two subjects inside with masks over their face.

Additional sheriff’s office deputies and a Maryland state trooper arrived. The two men then exited the building through the drive-thru window and were approached by Dep. Lefave. Dep. Lefave ordered the two to show their hands and stop. The two men fled and were detained by backup officers. The two were identified as James Daniel Short, 20, of No Fixed Address (now its the jail until some bozo gives him bail) and Charles Patrick Balsbaugh, 28, of Valley Lee, Maryland.

Short and Balsbaugh were transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center and charged with Second Degree Burglary, Fourth Degree Burglary- Storehouse, Fourth Degree Burglary-Theft, Malicious Destruction of Property Over $1000, and Theft less than $100.00.
