News from the Captain

Since May 5, there have been eight burglaries between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. in the following locations in the Pikesville Precinct.

  • August 14: 3100 block of Northbrook Road
  • July 12: 3300 block of Marnat Road
  • July 10: 3100 block of Shelburne Road
  • June 25: 2500 block of Smith Avenue
  • June 11: 6600 block of Shelrick Place
  • June 9: 3300 block of Greenvale Road
  • May 13: 6500 block of Pimlico Road
  • May 5: 7900 block of Humboldt Road

In most cases, suspects entered homes through an unlocked door or window. In one incident, the suspect removed insulation around a window air conditioner, then reached in and unlocked a door.

Keep your home secured at all times. Criminals look for unlocked doors and windows when deciding what house to target. Remember to lock doors and windows, and use your alarm system if you have one. Also, keep your home well lit at night so criminals have no place to hide.

The Pikesville Precinct Community Outreach Team offers free residential security surveys. If you are interested in having a uniformed officer come to your home to provide security tips, call the precinct at 410-887-6775.

The public's assistance is always essential in keeping communities safe. Criminals count on not being noticed or seen by people who do not report their suspicious activities. Help make your community an uncomfortable place for any criminal. If you notice suspicious activity, get a description of the subjects and vehicles, if possible, and report it to 911 immediately.

Citizens are reminded of other crime prevention tips to stay safe while the weather is warmer.

Resources

Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct's Community Outreach Team. Officers will then check on your location for any unusual activity while you are away.

If something suspicious does happen at your home, law enforcement will be able to quickly reach you or a local emergency contact from the information provided on the form.
