Man linked to area break-ins arrested

A man linked to break-ins at dozens of businesses in five counties, including more than 20 in Anne Arundel, has been arrested in Prince George's County.

Richard Louis Setzer, 32, of the 3100 block of Hollins Ferry Road in Baltimore, was charged with one count of breaking and entering in Anne Arundel but could face additional charges, police said yesterday.

Police said in a statement that Mr. Setzer admitted breaking into 12 businesses in the northern part of the county and 10 in the Pasadena area. Police said he twisted off front-door locks to gain entry.

The businesses include Pumphery's Variety Store, Hallmark, Framer's Choice, Village Cleaners and Duron Paints. The list also includes many hair salons.

He was charged in a February break-in at the Hair Cuttery in the 7300 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie.
