Police are asking for help identifying these suspects responsible for at least three commercial burglaries in a single night.

Detectives have connected overnight burglaries at Dunkin Donuts on Honeygo Center Drive and Lucky Express on Philadelphia Road, both in the White Marsh Precinct, and Thai Rainbow on Concourse Circle in Essex Precinct. All three burglaries occurred during the overnight hours from Sunday, September 29 into Monday, September 30.

Surveillance images recovered by detectives have helped to determine that the suspects broke into Tai Rainbow around 12:32 a.m. and Dunkin Donuts around 3:20 a.m. In all three cases the suspects broke in and attacked the cash drawers, making away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

This suspect was caught on a doorbell camera as he left a home in Parkville wearing a little girl's Minnie Mouse backpack he stole from the home. She wants it back, and is hoping you can help her identify the burglar who stole it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This burglar is believed to be connected to at least four residential burglaries since mid-May, targeting homes in the Hillendale and Harford Park communities in Precinct 6 (Towson) and Precinct 8 (Parkville).

Detectives have recovered surveillance video of the suspect during his travels to and from one of the burglaries in the 1700 block of Ryewood Road in Parkville on May 16, during which he stole the backpack. He is seen walking from the lower end of Solar Circle, on Hillsway Avenue, up the stairs leading to Sindall Road, and then onto Ryewood Road around 9 a.m. He entered the victim's property by jumping over a rear fence and checking the rear door first. When it didn't open he attempted to pry a window open but saw the exterior video surveillance camera and disabled it. He isn't seen again until he is caught on the doorbell camera (watch here) exiting through the front door around 9:36 a.m. with the child's Minnie Mouse backpack filled with valuables from the home, including her piggy bank. He follows the same path back to Solar Circle.

Similar type burglaries have occurred on Sindall Road and Wycliffe Road in May and June.

Detectives believe this burglar may be a resident at Northbrooke Township Apartments or a nearby neighborhood. If you think you recognize this suspect or you find images of this burglar on your own home surveillance system, or if you've seen someone with this girl's backpack, call detectives from the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit and help us return it to her: 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.
