Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who has stolen thousands of dollars worth of copper wiring from street lamps in Dundalk.

The ramp loops to and from I-695 at Eastern Avenue have become a bit darker since the beginning of April, when an unknown suspect began removing the copper wiring feeding the street lamps inside the ramp loops, rendering the lights inoperable. Not only does this pose a danger to drivers during the overnight hours, but the wires being taken are live, causing the potential for a fire or electrocution.

There have been at least 5 incidents of this occurring since April 3rd, most of them happening during the early evening hours, the latest of which occurred last night. Area cameras were able to capture images of the suspect, including a brief surveillance video.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. These crimes remain under investigation by the Baltimore County Pawn, Precious Metals and & Scrap Metal Team.

Reward Offered

Metro Crime Stoppers, an organization that is separate from the Baltimore County Police Department and Baltimore County Government, offers rewards for information in connection with felony offenses.

Anonymous tips can be sent to Metro Crime Stoppers by phone, text message or online.
