An Abingdon man was arrested Friday and charged with burglarizing two Abingdon homes the previous day.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office reported the arrest of Kyle Burnett Reddish, 18, of the 200 block of Kensington Parkway, Saturday. He has been released on $25,000 bond after a hearing before a Harford County District Court commissioner, according to online court records.

Reddish is accused of breaking into a home in the 900 block of Hamburg Drive in the early morning hours Thursday and a second home in the 2900 block of Craigston Lane.

The report of the second burglary came as Sheriff's Office deputies investigated the first incident, according to a news release.

The Hamburg Drive homeowners got up around 3:30 a.m. Thursday after their dog's barking woke them. The family members found items from the wife's purse scattered on the living room couch and cash was missing, according to the release.

Reddish's image was captured by a security camera at the Craigston Lane house, according to the release. The homeowner reported his car had been broken into and video footage showed Reddish entering the house through a pet door, the Sheriff's Office said.

No items were taken, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Reddish was arrested at his home Friday and charged with two counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of theft, plus "rogue and vagabond," according to the Sheriff's Office.

In September 2011, Reddish, then 16, was charged as an adult with second-degree rape, second-degree assault, second, third and fourth-degree sex offense as well as unnatural or perverted practice, according to online court records and media reports at the time. His alleged victim was a 14-year-old girl, who police said was assaulted at a party at her home after passing out from drinking too much alcohol.

The case was transferred to juvenile court in 2012, after retired Harford County Circuit Judge Maurice Baldwin Jr. granted a reverse waiver request filed by Reddish's lawyer.

At the time, Harford County State's Attorney Joseph Cassilly said any further matters and records in the case, under the juvenile court jurisdiction, would not be open to the public.

Reddish had attended Patterson Mill High School in Bel Air, where he played football. He is a 2013 graduate of the Center for Educational Opportunity in Aberdeen, according to graduation information Harford County Public Schools released to the media last May.
