#BCoPD mourns the loss of our friend Bill Toohey, for many years the voice of #BCoPD. Bill passed away this a.m. after a brief illness.
Bill served as the Director of Media Relations for the Baltimore County Police Department from 1996 to 2010. Bill was a good friend to many of us in the public safety and government community and a committed, enthusiastic media relations practitioner. We will miss him.
Please keep his family in your thoughts in the days ahead. ^EA2015-03-26T19:07:43+01:00http://www.facebook.com/BaltimoreCountyPoliceandFire/posts/957708944239237

Sometime between 9 a.m. September 28 and 1 p.m. October 1, an unknown subject pushed the window up several inches at the location. The suspect poked a hole in the screen allowing the suspect to reach the lock. The suspect removed the screen but failed to enter the porch and took nothing.

Since mid-August, there have been five deception burglaries in the North Point precinct. In each of these cases, a suspect posing as an employee of the water department approaches an elderly person. The suspect tells the elderly person, that there is a water problem in the area and they have to go inside and check the water. As the suspect and the victim are in one area of the home, a second suspect enters the home and steals property.
The suspect claiming to be from the water department has been described by victims as being an olive-skinned male.
Citizens are reminded that if someone that is unfamiliar to them comes to their home and says they have to come inside: Don’t let them in and call police. Citizens should also keep an eye on the elderly persons in their communities and report any suspicious persons or activity.
