At 4:00 p.m., an unknown suspect attempted to gain entry into the residence by prying the front door. No entry was gained. The suspect then left the location in a white vehicle.
The Precinct 8/Parkville Officers of the Year for 2014 are officers Lyles and Akehurst.
Officer Lyles, a member of the Precinct 8 Community Action Team, is receiving the 2014 Officer of the Year Award from the Sons of the American Legion.
During 2014, officer Lyles issued 599 traffic citations, 474 warnings, 51 safety equipment repair orders, and completed 73 field interview reports. He also cleared 108 cases, making 44 arrests.
Officer Lyles is described by his supervisor as “an invaluable asset” and “The citizens of the Parkville Precinct and Baltimore County most certainly benefit from” his “dedicated service”.
Officer Akehurst, a 27-1/2 year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department, is receiving the 2014 Officer of the Year Award from the Police Community Relations Council.
During 2014, officer Akehurst issued 392 traffic citations, 305 warnings, 65 safety equipment repair orders, and completed 27 field interview reports. He also cleared 56 cases, making 50 arrests. Out of his 50 arrests, 33 (66%) were for DUI.
