A Thurmont man was arrested Monday after police got a tip from a resident identifying him as the man who smashed his way into the liquor store on Tippin Drive, according to a police press release.

The Thurmont Police Department took a report of the burglary at about 7 a.m. Monday, when the front glass door of Thurmont Liquors was found broken with a cinder block, the release states.

The store owner provided officers with a photograph of the suspect from security cameras, and a tipster later identified the man as William Todd Carbaugh, 40. Carbaugh was taken into custody a short time later after finding him in the 300 block of West Main Street, according to the release.

Several bottles of alcohol were recovered after Carbaugh's arrest, the release states.

Carbaugh, of Thurmont, was charged with second- and fourth-degree burglary, as well as malicious destruction of property in excess of $1,000 and theft between $100 and $1,500.

He was ordered held without bail at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center, where he remained as of Tuesday evening awaiting a bail review hearing set for Wednesday.
