A Street man was arrested and charged last month in connection with a number of burglaries and threats against a witness in his pending cases.

Between December 2009 and March 1, Aubrey Gerald Pritt, 39, allegedly broke into four unoccupied building across Harford County and stole copper and brass, according to charging documents.

While some locations did not have final estimates, the thefts and damage total at least $7,600, according to charging documents.

Pritt was charged March 12 with theft less than $1,000 and in a separate case with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, vandalism more than $500 and theft less than $1,000. He was released from the Harford County Detention Center later that day after posting $5,000 bond in the single theft charge case and a $10,000 bond in the burglary case.

After being released, a 19-year-old witness in the case received a threatening text message allegedly from Pritt telling the 19-year-old to “go to get your mouth wire,” according to charging documents.

A short time after receiving the text message, someone hit the young man in his jaw while he sat in his car.

Pritt allegedly drove past the 19-year-old’s home and yelled threats to the young man’s mother, according to charging documents.

Pritt, of the 3300 block of Scarboro Road, was charged March 23 with retaliating against a witness, first-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, two counts of fourth-degree burglary, four counts of theft between $1,000 and $10,000, three counts of vandalism more than $500, trespassing on posted property, and theft scheme between $1,000 and $10,000.

At a bail review hearing March 25, Pritt said he never threatened the witness.

Judge John L. Dunnigan ordered Pritt to continue to be held without bail in the retaliating against a witness case.

Pritt had an additional bail review hearing Wednesday after the state petitioned to have his bond revoked in his two other cases.

Dunnigan granted the state’s request Wednesday in Harford County District Court.

Pritt was being held at the Harford County Detention Center Thursday afternoon without bail in all three cases.
