Burglar takes cash, pool cue from apartment

A burglar used the crawl space in a Glen Burnie apartment building to enter an apartment Tuesday and steal $35 and a pool cue valued at $400, county police said.

Police were called to the apartment of Craig Anthony Naylor in the 200 block of Woodhill Drive shortly before 1 p.m. after his father went there to drop off groceries and discovered a hole in the living room ceiling.

Officer Max Weinstein found that the burglar had entered a crawl space in the stairwell of the building, climbed to Naylor's living room ceiling and broken through.

When Naylor returned home about 6: 30 p.m., he told police that his pool cue and money were missing.

2 arrested in thefts at department stores

Police arrested two Baltimore men in separate incidents Tuesday and charged them with stealing electric drills and clothing worth more than $600 from two Glen Burnie department stores.

Police said a security guard at the Caldor store in the 7300 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. called them to the store shortly after 4: 30 p.m. and told them he was holding a man who had entered the store with a small white bag, gone to the hardware department and returned carrying a large gray bag with merchandise in it.

The guard stopped the man outside the store and asked him for a receipt for the three cordless drills in the bag, valued at a total of $164, police said. He had no receipt and confessed to stealing the merchandise, police said.

Four hours later, police said, a security guard at Value City, in the 7700 block of Ritchie Highway, called them to report that he was holding a man who had taken $446 worth of clothes -- five pairs of shoes, two pairs of socks and a pair of jeans -- from store displays, concealed them and walked out.

The guard stopped the man outside the store.

Josh Marvin Jones, 29, of the 1400 block of Montmore Court was charged with theft in the Caldor incident. Clea Hatcher, 41, of the 600 block of W. Franklin St. was charged with felony theft and trespassing in the Value City incident.

Hatcher was charged with trespassing after the guard told an officer that the man had been arrested at the store twice before on similar charges, police said.
