Frank Wilcox, 35, has been charged with third-degree burglary and second-degree assault. Wilcox is a 17-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department. His most recent assignment was at the White Marsh Precinct.

Just before 1:00 a.m. on January 6, 2020, Baltimore County Police responded to the 7400-block of Blevins Avenue, 21219 for the report of an assault. The subsequent investigation determined that Wilcox began an argument with the homeowners at this location over a domestic issue, forced his way inside the house, and then pushed the victim. The victim fell to the floor after being pushed. Other witnesses were able to remove Wilcox from the area prior to police arrival. Wilcox later turned himself into police during the investigation.

“The officers of the Baltimore County Police Department are obligated to not only enforce the law but to uphold the law in both their professional and personal lives. The allegations that have been made in this case are serious and very concerning, they are not representative of the values and ethics of the many officers and professional staff of the Baltimore County Police Department who dedicate their lives to ensuring the safety of others. Mr. Wilcox remains suspended without pay while the judicial process takes place,” according to Corporal Shawn Vinson. He is currently being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on a denied bail status.

Earlier this month these two suspects broke into Pepe's, a family-owned restaurant in the Mt. Washington area, and police are now turning to the public for help identifying them.

Early Friday morning, October 4, the two suspects were caught on surveillance camera (watch here) driving up alongside Pepe's in a white sedan, then breaking in through a side door. Once inside, the burglars expended a significant amount of energy in their attempts to gain access to the registers, and caused a significant amount of damage. They eventually fled the building with an entire register drawer, driving southbound on Falls Road in the white sedan.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit are attempting to further the investigation into this commercial burglary and are asking anyone who recognizes either of these suspects to contact them by calling 410-307-2020.
