Burglar breaks into house, steals $2,400 worth of items

A burglar shattered a side window at a house in the 100 block of Foxhound Drive on Monday, ransacked the place and stole $2,400 worth of stereo and recreational equipment, including a mountain bike he rode away, county police said.

A resident of the house told police he discovered the break-in shortly before noon. The burglar also took a compact disc player, about 100 CDs, a black knapsack and a pair of in-line skates, police said.

A neighbor told police she saw a man leaving the house on the bicycle about 11: 30 a.m. with the knapsack and skates over his shoulder, police said.

Woman charged in theft of clothing from Hecht's

County police arrested a Forestville woman Saturday on charges of stealing more than $500 worth of clothing from the Hecht's store in Marley Station mall.

Cheryl Mason, 47, of the 1400 block of Eastwood Drive was charged with felony theft and released on her own recognizance.

Aden Malenfant, a security guard, told police he saw a woman in the sportswear department about 8: 30 p.m. carrying a large J. C. Penney Co. bag. She took two pairs of pants and two shirts from a display into the fitting room and left the room a few minutes later with only the shirts, he reported.

Mr. Malenfant checked the room, but could not find the pants. He stopped the woman after she left the store, found six more pairs of pants and two shirts, together worth $544.99, in her bag, police said.
