A man who allegedly skipped bail after being charged in a home-invasion robbery in Perryville last summer was arrested in Harford County on Tuesday night.
Eric Christopher Fleming, a 24-year-old Havre de Grace resident, had gained his pre-trial freedom by posting a $25,000 bond on Sept. 16, 2009 - one day after his arrest in connection with the July 8 armed robbery of several people inside a home on Blythedale Road.
But he became a wanted man after failing to appear for a Feb. 26 pretrial conference, according to Cecil County Circuit Court records.
"He's back in the Cecil County Detention Center on no bond right now," said Lt. Bernard Chiominto of the county sheriff's office.
Chiominto said he didn't know the details of Fleming's arrest in Harford County.
Fleming, who also goes by the nickname "Snoop," is the second defendant in the home-invasion robbery to be re-arrested after failing to appear for a court hearing.
Daisa Latish Townley, a 22-year-old resident of Bel Air, was re-arrested hours after she allegedly failed to appear for a Dec. 4 pretrial conference while free on a $5,000 bond, according to court records.
Townley, who posted her bond a day after her Aug. 12 arrest, also is currently being held on bond, court records show.
Townley, Fleming and a third alleged accomplice - 18-year-old Perryville resident Jerrard Christopher Wilmore - are accused of forcing their way into the Blythedale Road home through a locked front door about 3:45 a.m.
Townley brandished a black handgun while Fleming was armed with a knife and Wilmore carried a baseball bat, according to police.
The trio allegedly awakened several residents, including a 12-year-old girl, who reportedly had a gun held to her head as the thieves stole her iPod.
The 34-year-old owner of the home was eventually able to arm himself with a handgun and managed to chase the three bandits from his house, police said.
A 25-year-old woman, a 33-year-old man and an 11-year-old girl also were inside the home at the time, police aid.
No injuries were reported.
Wilmore was arrested less than 18 hours after the home-invasion robbery in a wooded area near his home on Brookside Drive in the Williams Trailer Park.
Nearly three months after his arrest, Wilmore gained his pretrial freedom by posting a $20,000 bond, according to court records.
He is now facing up to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty on Jan. 19 to conspiracy to commit robbery. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors agreed to drop other charges including armed robbery, second-degree assault and first-degree burglary.
Wilmore's sentencing was scheduled for March 2, but has been postponed, according to court records, which don't provide a reason for the delay.
A new sentencing date had not been set at of Tuesday.
