— BARTON — A Barton woman who heard someone in her home found a Westernport man lying on the floor in her bedroom Tuesday afternoon and went to a neighbor’s house to call police.

Allegany County sheriff’s deputies responded to Takoma Drive at about 3 p.m. and located Joseph Melvin Kyle III, 30, eating the homeowner’s food in her kitchen. He was charged with three counts of burglary and theft under $100.

Kyle was held initially in the Allegany County Detention Center on $45,000 bond. Following a bail review hearing Wednesday in district court, Kyle was granted pretrial release on his personal recognizance.
