Deputies received an anonymous tip.
An 18 year old Westminster man, who had three outstanding warrants, was arrested Thursday night, and now faces charges of vehicle theft.
The Carroll County Sheriff's Office sent deputies to the 7800 block of East Hill Road, in Mount Airy, after receiving an anonymous tip that Aaron Thomas would be there, armed with a loaded handgun. The responding units were also told that the suspect may be in a stolen vehicle. When deputies and Maryland State Police arrived on the scene, they located Thomas and arrested him, without incident. They did not find any weapons. Shortly after taking him into custody, deputies were able to find the stolen vehicle.
