Police are investigating a robbery and a burglary that were reported in Carney over the past week.
At just before 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 5, an armed individual entered the Carroll Fuel store, located in the 9200-block of Harford Road (21234), jumped the counter, and demanded that the clerk open both cash drawers. The suspect then removed cash from both drawers, grabbed the clerk’s cell phone, and fled in a vehicle.
Sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Monday, October 8, an individual entered a garage door to a home in the 9300-block of Waltham Woods Road (21234) and forced open an inner door to gain entry into the residence. Once inside, the suspect stole jewelry then fled the scene.
The suspect was believed to be responsible for the October 30, 2017, robbery of the M&T Bank located at 8200 Harford Road and the November 3, 2017, robbery of the M&T Bank located at 8812 Waltham Woods Road.
Authorities say that at about 9:30 p.m. on Sunday night, the FBI Baltimore Violent Crimes Task Force attempted to serve an arrest warrant at a home on McGrady Road in Rising Sun.
The suspect did not comply with officers and barricaded himself inside the home.
The home then caught fire and the man was subsequently found dead inside. His identity is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
The Maryland Office of State Fire Marshal is investigating the blaze. Preliminary reports would seem to indicate that the suspect may have set fire to the home, according to the Cecil County Fire Blog.
The FBI is offering a reward for information that leads to the capture of a Parkville bank robber.

In each robbery, the suspect entered the bank, announced a robbery using a demand note, and fled the bank on foot.
The man is described as a white male, approximately 5’9″ tall, weighing about 150 pounds, and is about 35 to 45 years old.
