Howard County police arrested an Ellicott City man Friday who they believe was involved in at least 14 area burglaries.

A police investigation revealed that a man had been entering unlocked garages and stealing alcohol and money, police said.

Sorrell was charged with multiple counts of burglary, one count of theft and one count of trespassing, police said.

Sorrell was being held at the Howard County Detention Center, awaiting a bond hearing.
