Baltimore County Police are investigating a Friday afternoon burglary in Parkville that sparked an extensive search by police for the suspects.

Just after noon on Friday, police responded to a home in the 9200 block of Bretton Reef Road 21234 for a report of a burglary. A resident told police that a juvenile male suspect had come to her front door, rang the doorbell, and banged on the door multiple times. She then heard a loud noise and discovered that the front door had been kicked in. Three juvenile male suspects entered the home but ran off when they saw her. A fourth juvenile male suspect that had remained outside the home also ran off. Nothing was taken from the home.

The suspects had driven to the home in a Volkswagen Jetta, but left it behind when they ran. Police towed it from the scene so it could be processed.

Police called in specialized units such as K-9 and Aviation to search for the suspects but were not able to locate them.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit.
