Free pizza for po­lice in naked-bur­glar case

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND NATION -

A Tow­son pizze­ria owner is of­fer­ing po­lice free slices next month as a thank-you for ar­rest­ing the man sus­pected of bur­glar­iz­ing the shop in the buff two weeks ago. Bal­ti­more County po­lice may eat for free dur­ing De­cem­ber at Slice of Tow­son New York Pizza, owner Paul Rizas said. The naked sus­pect was caught on se­cu­rity cam­eras ran­sack­ing the shop early Nov. 10. “I’m grate­ful to them for tak­ing it se­ri­ously,” Rizas said. On Mon­day, po­lice an­nounced they had charged Jonathan Kar­ron New­man, 23, of Rosedale with sec­ond-de­gree bur­glary. He has been re­leased on $50,000 bail. New­man could not be reached for com­ment and on­line court records did not list his at­tor­ney. The bur­glar climbed in through a roof vent and his sweat­pants got snagged, Rizas said. The man stripped off his pants — he wasn’t wear­ing un­der­wear, Rizas said — then wrapped his shirt around his head and ran­sacked the store. He caused at least $3,000 in dam­age. There was no money in the reg­is­ters, and the man ran out. Po­lice re­leased cen­sored im­ages of the bur­glar and Rizas of­fered free pizza to any­one who pro­vided po­lice in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to an ar­rest. Po­lice said they con­nected a car at the scene to New­man.
