Rockland — A Tenants Harbor man on bail for burglaries returned Nov. 5 to Sixth District Court in Rockland to face new criminal conduct charges.

Ricky Block, 46, appeared before Judge Susan Sparaco on two counts of burglary, three counts of theft, one count of criminal mischief and one count of violation of conditions of release. He had been arrested during the weekend and transported to Knox County Jail, where he remains.

Block pleaded not guilty to the new charges and was given a trial date of Feb. 27, 2013, in Knox County Superior Court.

Prosecutor Jeff Baroody recommended $5,000 cash bail and no contact with the victims, should Block make bail. He already has a Dec. 12 trial date on earlier burglary charges.

The judge agreed with the prosecution and imposed bail at $5,000, subject to review with a court-appointed attorney, and no contact with the victims.

Block was represented by lawyer for a day William Pagnano.

In another case, Caleb Madore, 18, of Englewood, Fla., appeared  on a charge of violating conditions of release and a count of criminal mischief. He was sentenced to 48 hours in jail and ordered to pay $100 in restitution by Nov.,15 and begin paying $25 a week in fines on Nov. 16.

Travis Condon, 21, of Washington, appeared on seven counts: failure to submit to arrest, two counts of violating conditions of release, possession of scheduled drugs, criminal mischief, and two counts of failure to appear and obstruction of government administration.

He pleaded not guilty and received a Dec. 27 trial date in Knox County Superior Court and a $1,000 fine on four dockets.

Felicia Glidden, 19, of Washington, pleaded not guilty on a violation of conditions of release, and a denial on a hindering apprehension charge. She received a Feb. 13 trial date for the new charges. She is scheduled for trial on the revocation charge.

In the argument for bail, Pagnano reminded the court of Glidden's young age and asked for $200 bail concurrent with an earlier charge, which the judge granted.

Jason Cockerline, 35, of Rockport, answered charges of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. Bail was set at $1,000 with conditions of no contact with the victim. He will be represented by Rockland attorney Lawrence Frier. His trial date was set for Feb. 27.

Arthur Andrews, 27, of Camden, received 24 hours in jail for criminal mischief.

Zachary Titus, 28, of Thomaston, pleaded not guilty on two charges of violating conditions of release. Trial was set for Dec. 13. Bail was set at $500 with conditions of no contact with the victim.

My mom was one of the victims from the original group of breakins that this guy did.  The fact that he was out on bail to begin with is amazing and now to allow him such a small amout for bail this time is ridiculous.  He'll just use the money he has stolen from places or from the items he has already stolen.  Leave the guy in jail, he obviously can't handle being out in society.
