Abingdon Teen Arrested For Burglarizing 2 Homes In Harford County

ABINGDON, Md. (WJZ)— An 18-year-old man has been arrested for burglarizing two Harford County homes last week.

Kyle Burnett Reddish has been charged with two counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of theft, and rogue and vagabond.

The first burglary was reported around 3:30 a.m. Jan. 9 in the 900-block of Hamburg Drive in Abingdon. The homeowner, Ronald Vohs, told police that his family was awakened by their dog's barking. As they went downstairs to check, they observed a closet door open and saw the contents of his wife's purse spilled out on the sofa. The family checked the remainder of the home and also found an undisclosed amount of cash missing.

While investigating that incident, deputies received another call for a burglary in the 2900-block Craigston Lane. Bruce Harrison reported his car had been broken into and his home had been burglarized.  He reported being awakened when his burglar alarm sounded.

Harrison's 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 backyard, where he entered the home by using a pet door. Nothing was stolen from 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 Jan. 10 and charged.

Reddish was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
