Pair of men charged in Richmond house break-in

RICHMOND — Two South Kingstown men were charged Monday with breaking into a house on Miranda Drive in which police say jewelry, a firearm and electronics were taken. Also stolen was a collectible Ted Williams rookie baseball card, according to reports.

Louis Northup, 22, of 910 Curtis Corner Road, and Patrick Celico, 18, of 155 Old North Road, were charged with breaking and entering, a felony. The men were taken into custody by South Kingstown police and turned over to Richmond police.

Police said arrests were made following an investigation conducted by Det. Drew Bishop into the break-in which occurred on July 22. Bishop, able to get a description of the suspect vehicle from neighbors, indicated he was able to track the vehicle back to the men which led to the recovery of some of the allegedly stolen property. Among the recovered items was the baseball card, Bishop said.

Northup was processed at the Richmond Police Station and arraigned before a justice of the peace, He was released on $5,000 surety bail ($500), for an appearance in Washington County Superior Court as a violator of his probation on a previous case on Friday.

Celico was also arraigned at the station and released on a promise to appear for felony screening in Superior Court at a later date.
