November 04, 1994

A Severn woman returned home from her night job at D.C. General Hospital Tuesday morning to find that burglars had broken in and taken property worth nearly $1,000, county police said yesterday.

Michelle Hewlin Williams, 26, told police she discovered the break-in shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday. The thieves pried the locks from her back door to get into her house, Ms. Williams told police.

The intruders took a 25-inch Emerson television set, a Hitachi video cassette recorder, a microwave oven and two video tapes.

Tools stolen from construction site

Thieves broke into a storage trailer near a house under construction in the 1300 block of Sleepy Hollow Road in Severn earlier this week and stole tools worth more than $350, county police said.

Matthew J. Fontana, 38, who is building the house, told police that the theft occurred between 5:30 p.m. Monday and 2 p.m. Tuesday. The thieves cut two padlocks off the trailer and stole a saw kit with saw blades, a hand drill and a saw, police said.
