Pair charged in Hampstead break-ins

Two 38-year-old men were being held in the Carroll County Detention Center Saturday in lieu of $25,000 bond each after being arrested Friday and charged with the theft of property from two Hampstead area homes.

Abdul Matin Barr Muntagqeem, whose last known address was in Baltimore, and Steven Laverne Jorden of Reisterstown were charged with stealing several thousand dollars worth of jewelry, coats, antique watches and VCR and TV equipment from the homes, state police said.

Police said that around 11:40 a.m. Friday, a Manchester area resident saw two men break into the home of Robert Riley in the 1800 block of Cape Horn Road.

The witness contacted off-duty Trooper Craig Williams, who arrested the suspects nearby with help from Trooper J.W. Long, the report said.

Personal property found in the suspects' vehicle led police to the home of Michelle Parrish in the 900 block of Beggs Road. That home also had been broken into, police said.

The two men were charged with breaking and entering and theft.


* Manchester: Firefighters from Manchester went to a house on Hanover Pike to investigate a 911 call at 10:11 p.m. Thursday.

* Hampstead: Units from Hampstead, Manchester, Lineboro and Arcadia in Baltimore County took an hour and 45 minutes to extinguish a garage fire on North Main Street, beginning with an alarm at 8:55 p.m. Friday.

While those units were occupied, an engine was transferred from Manchester to the Hampstead station and a Lineboro engine was moved to the Manchester station so that protection could be maintained in those areas.
