Burglars Cut Through Wall To Break In Crisfield Market

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Cutting a hole directly through a wall is not the most traditional burglary technique, but on Monday night, it apparently did the job. According to Crisfield police, two theft suspects made entrance through the rear exterior of Somers Cove Market by creating a hole to gain access.

Investigators believe the suspects peeled back aluminum siding and then cut through the interior wall. Property loss and damage is estimated to be more than $3,000. Shortly after, police tracked down Anthony Panzo, 32, and Robert Brown, 21, both of Marion, Maryland. They were arrested and charged with second and fourth degree burglary and theft, and were later held at the Somerset County Detention Center on $35,000 bond.

Local businesses tell WMDT that they do not hear a lot of crimes like this in the area, but when there are robberies, Somers Cove Market is the first place they expect.

"That is one place where I've seen the most robberies" says Dwayne Tilghman, an employee at Big Willy's Beer Distributor.

Police did not mention any previous activity at the market, but they did say, this is not common.

"This is unique in a burglary sense," said Cpl. Christopher Hill, public information officer at Crisfield Police Department. "This is not something we see often in Crisfield."
