Appellant Joseph Leo Baumgarten was convicted in the Circuit Court for Howard County of theft of less than $1,000 in value, Md. Code (2002, Repl. Vol. 2012) Criminal Law Article (“CL”) and conspiracy to commit burglary in the first degree. CL §§ 1-202 and 6-202. Baumgarten moved for acquittal of all charges at the close of evidence, arguing that there was insufficient evidence to support his convictions.

Accordingly, we reverse.
