November 19, 1996

A Taneytown man accused of breaking into two Carroll County homes in June is being held in Westminster on $50,000 bail for each incident, court records show.

John C. Villarreal, 25, of the 3500 block of Runnymeade Road was scheduled for a bail review hearing in District Court today. Villarreal, who was arrested yesterday, faces charges of burglary, theft of more than $300 and malicious destruction of property.

According to charging documents, a man broke into a Westminster home in the 2200 block of Nicodemus Road on June 10 and stole jewelry, a videocassette recorder, a compact disc player, a television, a chain saw, a camera and a watch.

On June 13, a man broke into a home in the 3300 block of Buffalo Road in New Windsor and stole two chain saws, stereo and computer equipment, three rifles, two shotguns, a pistol and other items, police said. A gun safe and a gun cabinet were damaged, police said.

Faulty extension cord blamed for house fire

An overheated extension cord caused a fire at a Mayberry home Friday, state fire marshals said yesterday. Damage was estimated at $10,000.

Ralph and Donna Angiolillo and their two children were not at home Friday when neighbors saw smoke coming from a second-floor window at 2 p.m. The blaze destroyed a bedroom, but fire marshals said a closed door prevented it from spreading further.

Firefighters from Taneytown, Pleasant Valley and Harney brought the blaze under control in 10 minutes. No one was injured, fire marshals said.
