Oakland man arrested in connection with a recent residential burglary

OAKLAND — A 26-year-old Oakland man has been arrested in connection with a recent residential burglary and a second Oakland man was charged with aiding him to avoid capture, according to the Garrett County Sheriff’s Office.

Michael R. Schmidl was charged with first-degree burglary; theft $1,000 to $10,000; theft $10,000 to $100,000; and malicious destruction of property.

Schmidl remained jailed Friday on $32,000 bond at the Garrett County Detention Center.

The charges stemmed from a burglary on Feb. 19 of a residence on Bray School Road.

Schmidl was arrested Friday, a day after police executed a search warrant at his residence where heroin and clonazepam were discovered. Schmidl reportedly ran from officers before he was taken into custody.

Additional charges of possession of heroin, clonazepam and resisting arrest were also filed against Schmidl.

Police also charged Charles W. Moats Jr., 34, with harboring a felon/fugitive in connection with allegedly assisting Schmidl to evade capture. He was charged by summons.

Police said Schmidl was also charged in an unrelated theft case in which tools were stolen from a Deer Park man who was doing work at the Schmidl residence in 2012. A charge of theft from $1,000 to $10,000 was filed in that case.
