With these two arrests detectives were able to clear eleven burglary cases that have occurred in Dundalk since mid-August.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit have charged two suspects in a string of overnight burglaries in the Dundalk Precinct.

With these two arrests detectives were able to clear eleven burglary cases that have occurred in Dundalk since mid-August.

The first case occurred on Aug. 16, when one of the suspects broke the lock on a sliding glass door to enter a home on Westfield Road around 2 a.m. while the residents were sleeping. The last burglary occurred around 6 a.m. on Thursday morning, October 1, in the 1900 block of Searles Road.

Both suspects were arrested later that afternoon, one of whom was in possession of items stolen from the home on Searles Road earlier in the morning.

In all of the cases the burglars either forced entry or entered homes through unlocked doors or windows and stole personal items, including purses, wallets, cash, jewelry, phones, credit cards, and in one case, a camera.

During a search and seizure warrant executed at the suspects’ residence numerous items belonging to the victims were recovered.

The suspects are identified as Dundalk residents Dakota Lee Barnard (24) and Brooke Michelle Theis (24), both of the 1900 block of Eastfield Road.

Both are charged with numerous counts of first, third and fourth degree burglary, and misdemeanor and felony theft. Both are held on no bail status pending bail review hearings.
