Terrill Andrea Pitts (hereinafter “Pitts”) was tried and convicted by a judge in the Circuit Court for Worcester County, Maryland with violating subsection (b) of the rogue and vagabond statute. The trial judge found, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Pitts, on September 4, 2012, was in the motor vehicle of another with intent to commit theft of the motor vehicle or property that was in the motor vehicle.

In this appeal, Pitts contends that the evidence presented by the State was insufficient to convict him of the charge. While he admits that the State presented sufficient evidence, if believed, to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was in the vehicle of another without permission of the vehicle’s owner, he maintains that the evidence was insufficient to prove that he was in the vehicle with the intent to steal either the vehicle or the contents of that vehicle.
