Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying this couple who burglarized a home in the 2400 block of Long Ridge Road in Reisterstown last month.

The couple was captured on a doorbell surveillance system (watch video here) that alerted the homeowner to their presence as the man approached the front door with the dog following. The woman entered the home through an unlocked door on another side of the house. The burglars left the location empty handed when they were confronted by the homeowner remotely through the surveillance system.

It is possible that these suspects may reside locally due to the fact that they appear to have been walking and had their dog with them at the time of the burglary. If you recognize either of these suspects contact the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.
