BCoPD arrest burglary suspect
On August 22, 2017, Baltimore County Police released surveillance photographs of a suspect connected to several burglaries throughout the Baltimore County area. Media coverage resulted in detectives receiving information leading to the iden- tification of the man. Richard Leroy Pierce, 63, of the 800-block of Seagull Avenue, 21225 has been charged with seven counts of seconddegree burglary, five counts of theft between $1,000 to $10,000, two counts of theft under $1,000, and one count of fourth-degree burglary.
Since June this suspect had burglarized several businesses throughout Baltimore County, mainly within the White Marsh and Cockeysville precincts, including a nursing home, a construction company, medical offices, insurance company offices, and one elementary school.
Pierce is currently being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center. The Police Department would like to thank the media and the public for assisting in the closure of these cases.
