  • The incident began at approximately 11:00 a.m. when a resident of the 2700 block of Newport Gap Pike saw that a glass pane in an exterior door of his home was broken, and someone had reached through and opened the door. The homeowner, who had been upstairs when the damage occurred, called police. Nothing was taken from the residence.
    When Troopers arrived on scene they were notified by a nearby homeowner that a burglary had just occurred at another house in the 2700 block of Newport Gap Pike. The two women who were in that residence heard intruders in their home and found jewelry and other items missing.
    Troopers canvassing the area stopped two men, Edgar White, 46, and Edward Mattingly, 39. Both were found to be in possession of items taken in the recently-occurred burglary, and were taken into custody.
    White and Mattingly, who both reside at a residence in the 2700 block of Newport Gap Pike, were transported to Troop 2, where detectives charged them with burglary and related offenses. White was committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institute on $5,700 secured bail. Mattingly was committed on $23,100 cash bail.
