A Reisterstown man was charged in connection with two burglaries in the Pikesville area.
Gerald Dwayne Medley, 50, of the 300 block of Cantata Court, faces burglary, theft and assault charges, as well as charges of vandalism and disorderly conduct.
Police say that at 7:10 p.m. Oct. 11, Medley went into a shed in the unit block of Milford Mill Road and stole a bicycle. The owner stopped Medley, who ran. The bicycle was recovered.

He hid in the bushes behind that home where police found him and arrested him. Medley also faces a charge of resisting arrest.
Medley was being held in the Baltimore County Detention Center Friday afternoon, according to court records.
