Albion man jailed for alleged burglary of rural Mendocino County home

A 48-year-old Albion man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of burglarizing another home in the rural Mendocino County community while the resident was away, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office said.

Thomas Langenderfer, who was on probation, was arrested after a search of his home in the 33200 block of Albion Ridge Road, Sgt. Joseph Comer said in a press release.

Property allegedly stolen from a home in the 3000 block of Albion Ridge B Road was allegedly found in Langenderfer’s home along with illegal drug paraphernalia, Comer said.

The burglary was reported Wednesday night by a man who had just returned home and discovered that someone had broken into the home and stolen items worth about $1,000, he said.

Langenderfer was held at Mendocino County Jail on $50,000 bail.
