A Carroll Man Charged With Burglary And Theft Could Face Additional Charges After Missing Hearing

A Carroll man, who is accused of burglarizing a vehicle and misdemeanor theft, could face additional charges after failing to appear for a scheduled court hearing. According to a criminal complaint filed by the Carroll Police Department, a victim reported on Dec. 14 that a drill, valued at $180, had been taken from his car while it was parked in the Walmart lot. Surveillance video shows 39-year-old John Gilbert Sanchez stopping near the victim’s car at the time the item is believed to have gone missing. He then proceeded to repeatedly drive up and down the rows of the parking lot. Sanchez is also accused of stealing a $99 Guardzilla camera from the store in the early morning hours of Jan. 4. He was taken into custody at his home on Sunday, Jan. 6 and transported to the Carroll County jail, where he was charged with third-degree burglary, an aggravated misdemeanor, and fifth-degree theft, a simple misdemeanor. He was released the same day after posting a $2,300 bond but was not present for an initial appearance hearing on Thursday morning. It has been rescheduled for Thursday, Jan. 17. If he fails to attend, a warrant will be issued for his arrest and his bond will be revoked.
