FALLSTON, Md. — The Harford County Sheriff's Office needs help solving a string of neighborhood thefts and burglaries.

Officials say they're investigating at least 21 incidents from August 8 to October 3, in Fallston.

The crimes have occurred in the Pleasantville, Oakmont, Harvest Hills, Brandywine Farms, and Round Acres communities.

In 18 of the incidents, victim's reported having property stolen from their vehicles. Several of the vehicles also reportedly had their windows busted out.

On one occasion, a suspect was caught by a witness digging through a car in the 2500 block of Port Lane. When the witness approached, the suspect assaulted them with pepper spray.
