Abingdon Man Arrested for Early Morning Burglaries
Suspect Captured on Home Video Surveillance System
[January 11, 2014, Abingdon, MD] — Harford County Sheriff's detectives have arrested and charged an 18 year-old Box Hill resident with burglarizing two homes in Abingdon in the early morning hours of January 9th. Kyle Burnett Reddish, 18, of 236 Kensington Parkway, Abingdon has been charged with 2 counts of first degree burglary, 2 counts of theft, and rogue and vagabond.
On January 9, 2014 Sheriff's deputies responded to the 900 block of Hamburg Drive, Abingdon, for a burglary in progress. The homeowner, Ronald Vohs, told police that at approximately 3:30am his family was awakened by their dog's barking. As they went downstairs to check on the dog they observed a closet door open and saw the contents of his wife's purse spilled out on the family room sofa. The family checked the remainder of the home and also found an undisclosed amount of cash missing.
While investigating the above incident deputies received another call for a burglary in the 2900 block Craigston Lane. Deputies responded and made contact with Mr. Bruce Harrison who reported his car had been broken into and his home had been burglarized. Mr. Harrison reported being awakened when his burglar alarm sounded. He immediately called 911. A home security surveillance system captured Reddish, wearing a light colored puffy winter jacket and a baseball cap, walk down the sidewalk and approach the victim's home. The video shows the suspect entering an unlocked vehicle and then walking into the homeowner's back yard where he enters the home by using a pet door. Nothing was stolen from the Harrison's home. Detectives, using still photos recovered from the video surveillance, identified Reddish as the suspect. Reddish was taken into custody at his home on January 10th and charged. After a hearing before a Harford County District Court Commissioner he was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
