Abingdon Man Arrested for Early Morning Burglaries

From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:

[Jan. 11, 2014, Abingdon, MD] — Harford County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested and charged an 18 year-old Box Hill resident with burglarizing two homes in Abingdon in the early morning hours of Jan. 9.

Kyle Burnett Reddish, 18, of 236 Kensington Parkway, Abingdon has been charged with 2 counts of first degree burglary, 2 counts of theft, and rogue and vagabond.

On January 9, 2014 sheriff’s deputies responded to the 900 block of Hamburg Drive, Abingdon, for a burglary in progress. The homeowner, Ronald Vohs, told police that at approximately 3:30am his family was awakened by their dog’s barking. As they went downstairs to check on the dog they observed a closet door open and saw the contents of his wife’s purse spilled out on the family room sofa. The family checked the remainder of the home and also found an undisclosed amount of cash missing.

While investigating the above incident deputies received another call for a burglary in the 2900 block Craigston Lane. Deputies responded and made contact with Mr. Bruce Harrison who reported his car had been broken into and his home had been burglarized. Mr. Harrison reported being awakened when his burglar alarm sounded. He immediately called 911. A 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 back yard where he enters the home by using a pet door. Nothing was stolen from the 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 January 10th and charged. After a hearing before a Harford County District Court Commissioner he was released after posting a $25,000 bond.

    He actually had good parents and guidance. Some times pieces of shit will always be pieces of shit no matter what they are taught. He was responsible for no less then 14 home invasions over the last year, and over 20 auto break ins. It cost me hundreds of dollars to repair the damage he did to my home in his vain attempt to break in. I caught a glimpse of him in my rifle sight as he was attempting to break down my neighbors door the next night after he hit my house. Boy he can run fast. Guess that’s why he was a star quarterback.

    How can his parents not know what was going on, I would have to guess he was not employed but had money, did they just turn a blind eye to this punk. Can the States attorney revisit the rape charges? Who made bail for this POS? The parents? If that is the case they are just adding to the problem. I don’t understand some parents, You can bet he was stealing from them too and they take him back in, if he broke in my house he be talking to a 12ga, it would be the last time for break ins.

    My heart goes out to the Reddish family. I pray that the pain they feel goes away as comfortably as possible. I feel sorry for his little brother the most who probably deals with negative comments at school. It just pains me to see a promising kid I knew in Boy Scouts grow up to be a disappointment. I hope that whatever demons that this boy has will go away and that he realizes his mistakes.

    His problem is he has never had any consequences. Or real ones at least. The criminal justice system failed him as well as his parents. I am sure he got a skate on the rape deal. Than the DUI should have left him without a liscence….it clearly didn’t as he finally got some consequences when he got a $25 dollar fine for no seat belt and an $83 fine for cell phone use. Than he gets a new car. Sorry he should clearly not be driving! Maybe now he will face some consequences.

    Wow. Okay, so first of all – I have no idea who this guy is, I graduated a few years before he did… So I have no opinion on him. Whether he’s guilty isn’t for me to decide. Not on the internet. Not with vicious allegations. I think rape and burglary are terrible crimes… an absolute violation. But since I wasn’t there, I’ll keep my opinions to myself.

    Now second… I am reading these comments and assume many of you are parents in the community. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL HELL is wrong with you people? I understand that this is unfortunately a public forum where many grievances can be aired, but really… this is a terrible example to be setting for your kids. I get that everyone is up in arms, but if the young man is guilty and our justice system does it’s job, then he’ll get what’s coming to him. If he’s a drug addict, that’s a serious mental health problem. If he gets off and is guilty, then f*** us right? And His parents are now being dragged across the coals in yor hate speech as well…if any of you personally know them, I would hope you’d have enough tact not to speak against them. But wow. Just wow. The dagger is where my hope for humanity does every time.

      This website and the news is often filled with stories of those who are constantly getting away with crimes you and I would be in jail for. The justice system has failed with this kid twice already. Public shame shall now commence. You didnt have your house broken into, locks repaired just to have it broken into again. You didnt have your children crying at night because their Christmas presents were stolen when this kid came and took them. You don’t have to lie in bed and wonder if the next time it happens perhaps they will cause you bodily harm. You didnt have to jump up at night at every sound to check to see if you or your neighbors house was being broken into again. So you can sit on your Pius mountain and complain about whatever you like. We are sick of being victims and we will defend our homes and children by any means necessary. We have had enough of sitting back and keeping our fingers crossed that we will no longer be victims. Spend a year in our shoes dealing with this or shut your mouth.

        Actually, Diane, my family was robbed. I live in Bel Air. It definitely feels like a violation to have your personal property stolen, trashed, and invaded. That is non-negotiable. And furthermore, I have a lot of empathy for the situation. To suggest that I don’t is wrong. But the onslaught of adults here being terrible bullies is pretty bad too. I’m not sitting on my pious (or pius… per your spelling) mountain. I am, however, not partaking in a witch hunt not am I making further slanderous statements about people other than Kyle (in reference to the sick bastards who are in full out harassment mode about the girl who commented on the Facebook page). It’s not fair to his family, either.

      This forum isn’t setting a bad example for our kids – the judicial system is.

      When there was a string of break-ins in the Laurel Bush Rd. area in Sept. of 2008, 2 adults and 2 kids were caught. When the kids had their day in court, the first kid was called up and the judge reminded him that he was warned the last time he was there that he (the judge) would throw the book at him if he ever saw him in his courtroom again. After numerous statements were given by victims (while the judge was typing on his computer and not even paying attention to them), the judge let both kids go with another slap on the wrist.

      I guess that is what he meant by throwing the book at him.

    I have known this punk for most of his life, He was caught throwing logs into traffic on Laurel Bush road attempting to cause accidents after his first run in with the law. He got away with rape because of a technicality from a botched job done by those collecting the evidence. What a piece of shit.

    I echo the sentiments that that will not happen, especially with most of the bleeding heart liberal judges on the bench. Sadly, a significant sentence won’t be imposed until he actually hurts or kills someone. And then the States Attorney will look at the evidence, shake his head, and finally prosecute this individual thinking he has done a good job in the name of justice. Usually criminals show a progression of deviant behavior and escalate over time. I am so door for the neighbors who have to put up withis this bulls#?t.

      Incompetence knows no part affiliation. Lack of accountability and ignorance know no party affiliation. What is the point of appealing to the bench for obvious acts of perjury or requesting an Emergency Evaluation or holding a person accountable in a civil manner when the judge looks at you and questions your credentials or fails to look at your evidence? These are not liberals and these are not conservatives. These are people we place in positions of authority beyond their level of responsibility or regard for the rights of others. Yes, petty criminals evolve into more sinister and cunning crimes. Often sending them for a few days or weekends to the Detention Center only enables them to obtain new criminal contacts and techniques. The revolving door policy of Stet cases that are never prosecuted and minimal sentences like 15 days for one charge out of seven when the maximum for an individual charge is 18 months is nothing to a person with little regard for the rights of others.

      He got a DUI before he was 21, yet still drove. He was accused of raping a 15 year old. Parents spent a small fortune getting him out. He was caught multiple times breaking and entering and has done no time because he is “A thriving pillar of the community” Obviously the judicial system is either incapable or incompetent in dealing with him. His actions have ad no consequences. There fore we shall use shame.

    What this young man desperately needs is a few months behind bars to get his act together, Clearly being out on bail is no deterrent for him to continue his illegal activities. unfortunately he will no doubt be set free to destroy the lives of others while he slowly destroys his own to the point of no return.

    The problem with the legal system is that it doesn’t hold folks accountable until they have progressed to the point of very serious crimes. Unfortunately, on the other end are a string of victims. The court system is a joke and the only ones benefitting are the defense attorneys.

    In this case, the individual raped someone. Instead of holding him accountable, she was blamed. That’s what our society continues to do – blame the victim. In reading this guy’s history, he is showing us a progression of criminality and what is scarey is that unless he is held accountable now for his behavior, he will continue to worsen and in the process of burglarizing another house, some poor victim is going to be home or come downstairs and confront him and may get hurt or killed. Maybe a woman in her own home may get raped and murdered.
    To think this guy works or worked at Appleby’s I won’t go there again.
    The whole thing is disgusting and the family is just as responsible for bailing him out and enabling this thug to do what he has been doing without any real accountability.

      Furthermore when you check Judicial case search it appears he was involved in multiple accidents and did not stop the same time he got picked up for the CDS violation. I keep wondering who put up his 25,000 bail for the burglery. He sure doesn’t make thast much at applebees. Also who is paying his repeat attorney for this. Perhaps that funding source needs to cut him off. If he is the funding source one should look at where the money is coming from.

        Sad to say, but he will go to jail get out and repeat, He has been arrested now multiple times for drugs, gone to rehab in lieu of charges for previous break ins and yet still continues to terrorize Box Hill. The only thing that will stop a junkie like this is an armed home owner next time he breaks into a house. Hopefully their aim is true.
