Kevin Scott Burchardt was arrested back in December after he was accused of breaking into multiple homes in Fluvanna County.

Monday, a grand jury in Fluvanna County certified the following charges against him:

- 8 counts of burglary while armed
- 2 counts of attempted burglary while armed
- 10 counts of possess firearm by convicted felon
- 7 counts of grand larceny
- 1 count of use of a firearm in commission of a felony
- 2 counts of abduction

Albemarle County Police continue to ask about other crimes that Burchardt may have committed last year.

Burchardt is currently being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange County with no bond.
