Man charged in sexual assault faces burglary charges

November 09, 1999

A lengthy investigation into a September break-in has led to the arrests of two men, including one charged earlier with sexually assaulting a high school girl in a school building.

The deli break-in occurred Sept. 10 at The Country Deli at 11855 National Pike west of Clear Spring, Maryland State Police said Tuesday.

Early that day, a cement block was thrown through the front window of the business, according to Sgt. D.R. Stottlemyer.

Once inside, the thieves took money, candy and food.

Stottlemyer on Tuesday charged two men in the break-in.

Bradley Wayne Rinehart, 31, of Hagerstown, and Timothy Reuben Smith, 19, of 114 Buena Vista Ave., were each charged with second- and fourth-degree burglary, felony theft and malicious destruction of property.

Both were being held at the Washington County Detention Center.

Rinehart's bond was set at $25,000 on those charges. He was already being held without bond on charges he sexually assaulted a North Hagerstown High School girl in the school last month.


Smith was being held on $15,000 for the Country Deli charges. Jail officials said he also has a $4,000 bond on traffic offenses and failure to appear in court.
