SEVERN, Md. -- A woman stumbled upon property stolen from her home at a Severn yard sale over the weekend, according to the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

After spending an undisclosed length of time away from home, the victim returned to find that her home and shed had been burglarized and a significant amount of property was taken.

On Saturday, she happened past a yard sale in front of 825 Reece Road and immediately noticed her property for sale.

Police went to the yard sale just after noon and arrested 46-year-old David Anthony Perticone, the resident who was holding the sale.

A search of the home uncovered more than $25,000 of the victim's property, which was returned to her.

Authorities charged Perticone with first- and fourth-degree burglary and theft more than $500.
