Crime HandcuffsPolice in Howard County have charged an Essex man with 14 burglary cases over the past two years.

David Warren Chilcote, 66, of Wiltshire Road, has been charged with committing commercial burglaries, all but one in Ellicott City, between September 2016 and April 2018. The last case was in Fulton.
