In Maryland, the crime of breaking and entering a motor vehicle and/or stealing its contents is referred to, somewhat strangely, as “rogue and vagabond”. Being a rogue and vagabond is a misdemeanor in Maryland punishable by up to 3 years imprisonment.
There are two ways to be guilty of being a rogue and vagabond. First, you can be guilty if you possess a burglar’s tool with the intent to use the tool to break and enter a vehicle. The second is to be in or on a motor vehicle with the intent to steal property that is in or on the vehicle, or the vehicle itself.
Like other theft charges, rogue and vagabond is a serious charge that can ruin your reputation and result in jail time. I can defend you from these serious charges. Call me at (301) 556‑8709 so that I can start defending your freedom today.
