At the scene, officers saw the door to Comfort Care, a medical supplies company, open and learned money had been stolen, police said.

The three business are all in suites of the same office building.

County police believe Evans also burglarized offices on the 1200, 1400 and 1600 blocks of York Road in Towson in December.

Police said he frequents the area of West North and McKean avenues in Baltimore City.
