Howard County police charge Columbia man in connection with seven Subway burglaries

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. - Howard County police have charged a Columbia man in connection with a series of burglaries at seven Subway restaurants.

Demond Herschell Woodson, 39, was charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft and malicious destruction of property for allegedly robbing Subways in Columbia, Ellicott City, Elkridge and Laurel seven times starting last December.

Police said each time, Woodson forced entry by breaking out the front glass door with a small tool. In most cases, he stole money from registers or entire cash drawers once he was inside.

Police said Woodson is a driver for a delivery company contracted by Subway restaurants. Officers took Woodson into custody Monday following a burglary at a Subway in another jurisdiction. After that, police connected him to the Subway burglaries in Howard County.

Detectives believe he may be involved in additional cases in surrounding jurisdictions and are continuing to investigate. Woodson is being held at the Howard County Detention Center on $150,000 bond.
