A former Westminster man was arrested late Monday on charges of burglary, theft and violating probation after he was accused of conspiring with two others to steal guns and other items, including a wedding ring set, from his parents' Westminster home.

Daniel N. Parry, 21, of no fixed address, waived yesterday's review hearing in District Court and was being held on $32,000 bail, court records showed.

In charging documents, state police said Parry's father suggested troopers look for his son after discovering no sign of forced entry during Sunday's burglary at the parents' Snydersburg Road home.

After making a background check on Parry, troopers discovered two outstanding warrants and arrested him at a basement apartment in the Druid Hill Park area in Baltimore.

The warrants charged Parry for a traffic violation in Baltimore County and for violating probation for failing to complete 100 hours of community service, which stemmed from a suspended one-year jail sentence received after pleading guilty on a theft charge in February.

During questioning, troopers said, Parry confessed to entering his parents' home with two other men to steal a .22-caliber pistol, a .38-caliber revolver, a television, electronic stereo equipment and jewelry, including the ring set.

A search of the basement apartment found a compact disc player missing from Parry's parents' home, troopers said.

Parry was charged on counts of burglary, theft and conspiracy to commit both crimes, as well as charges related to the outstanding warrants.
