Salisbury Man Charged in Burglary, Cooking Chicken Pot Pie
SALISBURY, Md.– A Salisbury man is facing burglary, theft and related charges following accusations that he broke into a home and cooked the homeowner's chicken pot pie- while dressed only in his underwear.
The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office reports that deputies responded to a burglary in progress at 10:23 p.m. Wednesday at the home located on the 100 block of Civic Avenue. When deputies arrived at the home, they say they found 22-year-old Russell Neff sitting in the victim's living room.
"We found the individual in question quite comfortable in the homeowner's leather recliner, only in his underwear, licking on the remote control and waiting for a chicken pot pie he had found in the freezer to be done out of the microwave," said Lt. Tim Robinson of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.
Robinson said an investigation into the incident revealed that Neff was beating on the victim's door trying to get inside, and gained entry while the victim was upstairs calling police.
The victim reportedly told police he did not know Neff. Deputies said they took him into custody after he struggled and resisted arrest.
Neff has been charged with first-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property, resisting arrest and theft of a chicken pot pie. He was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $250,000 bond.
