For some, a journal is a place to keep their secrets but one Lutherville woman's journal entries resulted in eight burglary charges.
Emily Kearns, 22, of the unit block of Elphin Court, is charged with a series of nine burglaries that span areas in both Cockeysville and Parkville precincts.
Kearns was arrested on Dec. 4 when detectives, who were keeping her under surveillance, saw her break into a home in the unit block of Country Club Lane and attempt to break into a home in the unit block of Greentree Drive in the Phoenix area, according to police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathleen Batton.
After her arrest, detectives recovered a journal the woman allegedly kept which was used as part of the investigation that tied her to six other burglaries in Parkville and Cockeysville precincts, Batton said.
On December 14, Kearns was charged with break-ins at residences in the following areas:
- 17500 block of Bushland Road in Parkton
- 4300 block of Long Green Road in Glen Arm
- 13800 block of East Devonfield Drive in Baldwin
- 4900 block of Bart Allen Lane
- 4200 block of Ravenhurt Circle
- 13600 block of Devonfield Drive
A search of online court records shows that Kearns was released from the Baltimore County Detention Center on Dec. 14 after posting a total of $200,000 bond.
