Troopers transported Haslup to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office pending service of the violation of probation warrant. Additional firearm charges are pending a review of the case with the Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office.


This case highlights the State Police goal of helping to prevent and investigate multi-jurisdictional crime while supporting allied law enforcement agencies across Maryland.
