A man already in jail awaiting trial in one burglary was charged yesterday with breaking into 30 more homes in the Ednor Gardens neighborhood and accused of stealing everything from jewelry to antique furniture.

Anthony Edwards, 31, of the 1700 block of Abbotson St. is being held in the Baltimore City Detention Center in lieu of $27,000 bail. Police said that could increase after the suspect has another bail review hearing, which is scheduled for tomorrow on the new charges.

Sgt. Frank Wagner of Northeastern District said investigators showed burglary victims photo lineups and matched paperwork that was filled in when items were sold at secondhand shops.

Police said they recently drove the suspect around Ednor Gardens, just north of Memorial Stadium, and said he showed them houses that were broken into, usually by forcing windows or doors. "He was pretty good," Wagner said.

The total value of items stolen was about $45,000, police said. That included one burglary in which goods worth $8,000 were reported taken. Wagner said the items included television sets, stereos, jewelry and antique furniture, including a Tiffany lamp.
