CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston police have made arrests in two unrelated weekend burglaries.
According to Sgt. Eric Hodges of the Charleston Police Department, a witness saw two men kick in a side door at a home at 6552 MacCorkle Ave. just before 9 a.m. on July 9. The men made off with a laptop computer and some jewelry before police arrived, but Hodges said they were found a short time later near the BP station in the 6300 block of MacCorkle Ave.
Rusty Jon Martin, 30, of Cross Lanes, and Thomas Cecil Means, 25, of Poca, were arrested and charged with burglary. The men were in the South Central Regional Jail Monday morning in lieu of $50,000 bond each.
At about 11 p.m. on Sunday, police went to a home at 1603 Livingston Ave. after witnesses saw two people outside the house -- one carrying a flat-screen TV, Hodges said. Hodges said the witness yelled at the pair, who set down the TV and fled. One ran away on foot and the other left in a white car.
Police spotted the car a short time later and arrested Patricia Irene McIntyre, 33, who gave police information that led to the arrest of Charleston resident John A. Iammarino, 48.
McIntyre was charged with nighttime burglary in connection with the incident, and Iammarino was charged with two counts of nighttime burglary in connection with the Sunday night incident and an earlier burglary on Seventh Avenue.
McIntyre was being held in the South Charleston Regional Jail in lieu of $50,000 bond. Iammarino was being held in the South Central Regional Jail in lieu of $100,000. He was also awaiting bond on a parol violation.
