Meet Maryland’s Beto O’Rourke

Say hello to Joseph Philip Svezzese.

Joseph works hard, and he plays hard, especially on the weekends. He enjoys, skiing, lazy days at the beach, and robbing stores with unicorns.

A Bel Air man is one of two suspects charged in the armed robbery of a High’s store in Baltimore County over the weekend. Police said the Harford County man was the getaway driver, and his accomplice robbed the convenience store while wearing a full-body unicorn costume.

Joseph Philip Svezzese, 27, of the 600 block of Thames Way in Bel Air, is charged with armed robbery; robbery; and theft from $1,500 to under $25,000.

Police said Jacob William Rogge, 28, of the 7900 block of Bradshaw Road in Upper Falls, was clad in a full-body white and pink unicorn costume when he entered the convenience store, smashed a register with a crowbar and demanded money from an employee.

Judging by Joseph’s mug shot, you’d think he would be the one wearing the unicorn costume. “Hey buddy, why the long face?”
