A 24-year-old Halethorpe man has been charged in connection with one of three recent home-invasion robberies in which armed men identified themselves as police officers and broke into homes in three different parts of the city, bound the occupants and stole money. The arrest of Lamel Pierce is linked to the first in the series of break-ins, which occurred June 27 in the 1500 block of Medford Road in Northeast Baltimore. Police are seeking two other suspects in that case. Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the Medford Road robbery is linked to drugs and is not connected to the other two attacks — on Elkins Lane in South Baltimore on July 1 and on West Garrison Avenue on July 5. No arrests have been made in those cases.
