Baltimore County Police are looking for information about the recent theft of the historic wrought iron gates at the entrance of Battle Acre Park in the 3100 block of North Point Road, Precinct 12/North Point.

Police responded at about noon today to the park for a report of a theft. The project manager for restoration of the park told police that the two gates for the park entrance were inside the property on June 25 - the last time he was at the park. A contractor discovered the gates missing on June 30.

The gates are worth $2000 each and are 100 years old. The thieves only took the smaller pedestrian gates and not the larger gates.

Neighbors interviewed by police said they did not see anyone taking the gates.

Officers have provided local scrap metal firms with a photo of the gates and asked them to notify police if the gates are found.

Battle Acre park is part of the field on which the Battle of Northpoint was fought in 1814. This was the day before the Battle of Baltimore during which the Star Spangled Banner was written. The land was deeded to the State of Maryland in 1839. The fences and gates were added in 1914.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact police at 410-307-2020.
