Neighbors Make Good Fences, Too

SEVERN -- Police said Tuesday that a woman came across a yard sale that included some familiar items -- her own.

Officers responded to the woman's house last week in the 800 block of Reece Road. The woman, whose name wasn't released, told Anne Arundel County police that her home and shed had been burglarized and that a "significant amount" of property had been stolen.

Two days later, she noticed the yard sale taking place just a few houses away and observed that items being sold had been stolen from her during the burglary, police said.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and recovered about $25,000 worth of the victim's property, which was returned to her.

David Anthony Perticone, 46, was charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary and theft, police said.
