Anne Arundel County and military police have arrested a Laurel man on a warrant charging him with a series of thefts at Fort Meade and elsewhere in which private and military property worth more than $300,000 was taken.

Police said the stolen items included a truck, large generators and tools.

The suspect was identified as Eugene Holden, 34, a free-lance mechanic, of the 8200 block of Baltimore St. in Laurel.

The stolen property was recovered yesterday in raids at C & C Trucking, in the 8100 block of Brock Bridge Road in Laurel and at a house in the 1100 block of Patuxent Road in Odenton.

At the house, police said they found stolen tools found stored in the body of a stolen 1991 Mitsubishi truck. The truck's chassis was missing.

Thefts attributed by police to Mr. Holden include break-ins on Jan. 24 at Whimpey's Mineral Inc. on Brock Bridge Road in Laurel, on Jan. 26 at an auto mechanic tool store on Brock Bridge Road in Laurel, on Jan. 26 at Tipton Airfield at Fort Meade and on Jan. 26 and 29 at two auto repair garages used by military personnel at Fort Meade.

The raids and arrest came after a lengthy undercover investigation by county police and military police at Fort Meade.

The case remains under investigation. Federal charges against Mr. Holden are pending, police said.
