Baltimore man arrested on burglary charges

November 17, 1994|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Sun Staff Writer

A 47-year-old Baltimore man, the companion of a burglary suspect who hanged himself in a cell in the Westminster state police barracks in September, was arrested on 12 counts of burglary-related charges yesterday.

William H. McFadden Jr., who lives in the 2600 block of W. Belvedere Ave., had been released on $25,000 unsecured bond on the September breaking and entering charges.

He was held in lieu of $50,000 bond after a hearing before a court commissioner yesterday.

Mr. McFadden and Daniel Ray Marsh, 43, of Glen Burnie were arrested in the Eldersburg area Sept. 20 in connection with alleged attempts to break into two Carroll County homes, according to police reports.

Mr. Marsh used his belt to hang himself about four hours after the arrests.

The crew of a medic unit attempted to resuscitate Mr. Marsh, but he was pronounced dead at Carroll County General Hospital at 5:05 p.m.

Mr. McFadden, who was released from a New Jersey prison in February after serving a one-year sentence, was charged yesterday with breaking into four dwellings in the Marriottsville and Mount Airy areas between July 26 and Sept. 16.

In one of the houses broken into on Ridge Road, jewelry valued at more than $23,800 was stolen, according to police reports.

Guns, tools and other property also were stolen in the burglaries, police said.

Mr. McFadden requested a preliminary hearing on the felony charges.

The hearing was set for Dec. 14.
