Between 2 p.m. August 2 and 11:15 a.m. August 3, an unknown suspect tried to break into the victim's shed. Nothing appeared missing.

The following officers have been awarded Officer of the Month by their Commanding Officer:

January: Dundalk Community Action Team (CAT) for their collective proactive enforcement, serving 22 arrest warrants & making 19 self-initiated criminal arrests, as well as 2 serious traffic offense arrests. 

February: Officer Heimiller #5584 for leading his squad in case clearances and traffic violation enforcement, including one drunk driver, five suspended drivers, two unlicensed operators, two uninsured vehicles, and one juvenile who attempted to flee and elude Officer Heimiller, without success. That juvenile was arrested and prosecuted for the traffic violations as well as CDS violations to include distribution. Officer Heimiller takes his role ni keeping the motoring community safe seriously, and understands the importance of traffic enforcement in overall crime suppression.

March: Officer Thorn #4868 for his initiative, investigative work with the Homicide Unit that led to clearing a murder-suicide in Edgemere, and his overall high level of enforcement of both traffic violations and crime. He investigated a number of significant cases this month resulting in clearances and arrests. Officer Thorn uses sound decision making and maintains a tactical mindset in every situation he faces. He maintains professionalism in all encounters, and his investigations are thorough and competently conducted. He works well with other agencies to further his investigations, as well as disseminating information to other agencies when it could assist in cross-jurisdictional investigations.

April: Dundalk Traffic Team which works daily to keep the motoring public safe, had an outstanding month of traffic law violation enforcement, in addition to clearing 8 hit-and-run crash investigations. This team genuinely cares about the safety of the citizens of Baltimore County, targeting negligent and careless drivers in an effort to prevent motor vehicle crashes. They also focus traffic enforcement efforts in high crime areas in an effort to deter crime and detect criminal activity as it is occurring, which led them to making one arrest on a felony warrant and 5 additional arrests. They are quick to respond to community traffic complaints and make sure they bring the complaint to a satisfactory result.

May: Officer Leach #5640 who led his squad in criminal enforcement, including felony and misdemeanor arrests, and resulting in confiscations of drugs and guns. Officer Leach is a savvy officer, targeting high crime areas with a keen eye. Most of his proactive enforcement is drug interdiction, during a time when it is much needed. The quality of his work for the citizens of Baltimore County in the Dundalk area is exceptional and well deserving of an officer of the month award.

June: Officer Armstrong #6130 for, among other things, a traffic stop he made on a vehicle that had Maryland registration but was missing the front plate. Upon speaking with the driver he detected the odor of marijuana. The driver admitted to having smoked marijuana in the vehicle and indicated there was more in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle resulted in the confiscation of marijuana and, more importantly, a loaded handgun that was found to have been stolen out of Norfolk, Virginia. The gun was also confiscated and the suspect arrested.
