Three arrested on breaking, entering charges

County police have arrested three men who they allege are responsible for breaking into at least 14 homes in the Linthicum-Brooklyn Park-Glen Burnie area since August.

John Lawrence Thompson, 39, was charged with five counts of breaking and entering.

His brother, Gary Lee Thompson, 25, was charged with two counts of breaking and entering, and John David Friedley, 37, was charged with four counts of breaking and entering. None of the men has permanent addresses.

Detective Donald Hauf said he believes the three men are responsible for more than 14 burglaries here and others in Baltimore County.

Detective Hauf said he expects to file more charges.

Police confiscated $25,000 in stolen property when they raided a home in the 4700 block of Ridge Ave. in Lansdowne Friday.

The property included video tapes, jewelry, beer, boat motors, tools and other items.

Mr. Friedley and John Thompson were arrested early Friday after Baltimore County police stopped their truck because it fit the description of one used in a break-in Thursday night.

Gary Thompson was arrested Friday at a home in the 2700 block of Virginia Ave. in Baltimore Highlands, Detective Hauf said.
