At approximately 7:15 p.m., officers of the Allegany County Bureau of Police arrested 60 year old Robert Lee Hovermale Jr. (last fixed address of Oakland, Md.) outside of a Westernport business on an arrest warrant.
On Aug. 21, the Bureau had investigated a theft from a local restaurant in Westernport, where Hovermale had allegedly stolen several food items and plumbing parts. The investigating officer applied for charges against Hovermale through the Allegany County District Court Commissioner's Office, who then issued an arrest warrant charging Hovermale with theft.
Hovermale was taken before a District Court Commissioner and committed to the Allegany County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.
