From the Maryland State Police, Bel Air Barrack:
(Bel Air, MD)_ A three-month-long investigation by troopers at the Bel Air Barrack has led to the arrest of a subject responsible for stealing more than $100,000 worth of top-shelf liquor from numerous liquor stores. It is believed that the thefts have occurred over a three year period.
The investigation which led to the arrest of the suspect began on October 19, 2011 when troopers responded to Third Base Liquors at 2029 S. Fountain Green Road in Bel Air, MD for the report of a theft of vodka. Investigators from the Bel Air Barrack Criminal Investigation Section became involved after noting a trend of similar criminality throughout the area.
Their investigation revealed that the same suspect was likely responsible for six other thefts in Harford County and numerous thefts in other jurisdictions.
After following numerous leads, investigators identified Kyle Venton Brown, 31, who has no fixed address, as the suspect.
The Maryland State Police Apprehension Team assisted in locating and arresting Brown at a residence in Glen Burnie, MD on January 30, 2012. This arrest resulted in the closure of 10 arrest warrants in Maryland and one arrest warrant from New Jersey.
It is believed that Brown had committed thefts in several states, as far north as Connecticut. Bel Air Barrack investigators are working with investigators from other jurisdictions and states to determine if additional charges will be filed.
Following his arrest, Brown was transported to the Harford County Detention Center where he is currently incarcerated.
