LA PLATA, MD—Tony Covington, State’s Attorney for Charles County, announced that on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, Charles County Circuit Court Judge H. James West sentenced Terelle Shawan Carroll, 17 of Nanjemoy, to 7 years for Conspiracy Theft Scheme $1,000-$10,000, 7 years for Theft $1,000-$10,000, 3 years for Rogue and Vagabond, and 5 years each for 4 separate counts of First Degree Burglary. All sentences will run concurrent to each other for a total of 7 years active time.
On December 9, 2015, officers conducting a search and seizure warrant at Carroll’s residence recovered two Apple iPods that were reported stolen from a motor vehicle. A separate search and seizure warrant was conducted to monitor the movements of a vehicle linked to a string of burglaries and thefts in Nanjemoy and surrounding areas. An investigation revealed that over a three month timespan, September 2015 through November 2015, Carroll was involved in several burglaries and theft from motor vehicles in Nanjemoy and surrounding areas, leading up to a burglary and sexual assault in Nanjemoy occurring on December 29, 2015 by Carroll.
Carroll was apprehended by officers on March 3, 2016 after he was positively linked by DNA to the sexual assault occurring on December 29, 2015. Carroll is currently serving a 27 year sentence for the First Degree Sex Offense charge resulting from that case. Carroll’s Burglary and Thefts sentences will run consecutively to the 27 year sentence he is currently serving.
