Two more charged in series of burglaries

March 25, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Baltimore County police said yesterday that they have charged two more men in a series of three burglaries at a Glyndon concrete company that ended March 19 when company owners fatally shot one man and wounded two.

Police said the two men most recently charged in the break-ins at the Back River Supply Inc. in the 12200 block of Owings Mills Blvd. are Brandon M. Kruft of the 11900 block Thurloe Drive, Timonium, and Michael P. Walker of the 9100 block Vega Court, Randallstown.

Kruft, 20, was charged Wednesday, but his arrest was kept secret so as not to jeopardize the search for Walker, 22, who was arrested Friday, police said. Both are charged with breaking and entering and theft.

Investigators allege that Kruft and Enrico L. Margliarella, 24, first broke into the business March 17, taking some power tools and a .22-caliber rifle. Later that day, police say, Kruft and Walker pawned some of the stolen property.

The next day, police said, Walker and Magliarella broke into the business while Kruft waited outside. The third day, owners Dominic A. Geckle and Matthew J. Geckle were waiting with shotguns when Magliarella was allegedly joined by Justin Storto, 21, and Jonathan B. Steinbach, 24, of Baltimore, who was fatally shot.
