Baltimore County Police are investigating several thefts from autos in Essex on Sunday.

Sometime between approximately 4:15 a.m. to 6:22 a.m. on May 10, eight parked cars in the unit block of Urbanwood Court, 21221, the 800 block of Dorsey Avenue, 21221 and the 400 block of Virginia Avenue, 21221 were broken into. The investigation determined that several suspects walked through the neighborhoods, targeting unlocked vehicles parked in residential driveways and on the street.  

As a reminder, please always lock your car doors and remove any visible and valuable items. Thefts from autos are crimes of opportunity that you can prevent. Additional crime prevention tips are available online.

Police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the thefts. If anyone has residential security video or information that may lead to identifying the suspect responsible, please call the Essex Precinct at 410-887-0220 or dial 911. Callers may remain anonymous.

Baltimore County Police are asking for help identifying these two suspects involved in a burglary at Rent-A-Center in Parkville.

Surveillance video from the Parkway Crossing Shopping Center depicts these two suspects walking past stores and trying the door handles. The door of the Rent-A-Center came open, so the male suspect entered and stole a display television set out of the front window.

Police believe these suspects may live in the neighborhood surrounding the shopping center and are asking anyone who recognizes them to contact Baltimore County Police Burglary detectives by calling 410-307-2020 with information. Callers may remain anonymous.
