DUNDALK, Md. (WBFF) - A 29-year-old man is accused of burglarizing 11 homes in Dundalk, stealing items that included 10 firearms, over the course of October and November.

Edward Arthur Buckmaster, of Eastbrook Road, allegedly targeted homes that were vacant, under renovation or up for sale, between Oct. 27 and Nov. 18, reported Baltimore County police Wednesday.

He allegedly mostly took copper pipes and wiring from the basements, causing "major water damage" in one of them, said police.

He also allegedly stole jewelry and cash from a Stratton Way home, and jewelry, tools and "a cache of firearms" from a Southern Avenue home. He admitted in an interview to stealing the guns from the Southern Avenue home and hiding them in a nearby cemetery.

Police recovered all but one of the guns from the cemetery.

Buckmaster was arrested after breaking out a neighbor's window and trying to hide in their attic, said police.

Surveillance video showed Buckmaster as the suspect.

He is charged with two counts of first-degree burglary, theft and vandalism, and he is being held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
