Two men have been charged this week through summonses with counterfeiting violations in court papers alleging that police seized about 1,600 illegal DVD copies from the trunk of a vehicle parked outside a Charlotte Hall business.
Paul Harry Cromwell, 44, of Sykesville and Barry William Brendlinger, 34, of Lexington Park also were charged with possessing and offering for sale the DVDs, from the April 20 investigation by St. Mary’s sheriff’s deputies at the “Movie Tyme” shop on Three Notch Road.
The two suspects were seen taking items from the car’s trunk into the business, and when they wouldn’t let police search the vehicle, the law officers got a search warrant to seize the car and found the DVDs in the trunk, according to a charges application filed by sheriff’s deputy Skyler L. LeFave.
Lona Lee Plumb, 44, of Mechanicsville is scheduled for trial in July on the same charges, filed against her last April from the sheriff’s office investigation. In February, court papers allege, Plumb told police that she sold movies for “Barry and Paul,” and more than 1,100 illegal DVD copies were seized at that time from the woman.
