Model home ransacked; two men arrested

Police arrested two men yesterday on charges of ransacking a model home in Stoney Beach and throwing its furniture into Stoney Creek, county police said.

Anthony Petraglia, 22, of the 200 block of Tolstoy Lane in Severna Park and John D. Bunn, 21, of the 7900 block of Waterview Drive in Stoney Creek were charged with burglary and malicious destruction of property.

Police were called to Stoney Beach about 2: 30 a.m. by a neighbor who reported a burglary. Officers Andrew Albach and James Schreiber were on their way to the model home in the 1400 block of Rivermist Court when they were told that two men had left in a red Jeep, police said.

Albach and Schreiber saw a red Jeep at Edwin Raynor Boulevard and Mountain Road a few minutes later and stopped it. The only man in the Jeep fitted the description of one of the burglars, police said.

After police arrested him, he told officers that the door to the model home was unlocked and that he and the other man went in and threw furniture into Stoney Creek, police said.

The man gave police an address for the other man, who lives a few blocks from the model home, and police arrested him.
