Baltimore County Police have charged a suspect in a targeted home-invasion robbery of an elderly couple in Pikesville yesterday morning.

Timothy McCargo (45) of the unit block of Linden Avenue, 21217 was arrested around 6:40 p.m. last night after a swift and thorough investigation indicated he was the man who robbed a husband (70) and wife (68) inside their home in the 3300 block of Timberfield Lane, 21209.

Police were called to the home around 4:35 a.m. when the couple escaped their bindings after McCargo left in their Chevrolet Equinox with a number of their possessions, including cash, jewelry, credit cards, a phone, firearms, ammunition and a 20-pack of toilet paper.

McCargo is believed to have entered the couple's home through a window around 3:45 a.m. and remain undetected until the couple's dog woke the husband, who was then confronted by a gun wielding McCargo.

The investigation led police to McCargo at his residence in Baltimore City later the same day. Most of the couple's property has been recovered. One handgun remains outstanding. McCargo is charged with the following.

  • Home Invasion
  • Armed Robbery
