Direct TV Installer Arrested for Barging Into Basement
A man claimed he was there to do work, but his employer denied a work order in that particular Monkton home.
A Direct TV technician was arrested last week after allegedly entering a Monkton woman's basement without permission, police say.
Harry Anthony Herald, 45, of the 7100 block of Brightside Avenue in Overlea, was charged with third-degree burglary after allegedly telling the 69-year-old homeowner that he was there to do work on her television, according to a police incident summary.
Police say Direct TV representatives denied Herald's claims, adding that they had no record of a work order in the 16300 block of York Road in Monkton between 3:15 and 3:35 p.m. on Dec. 22.
