Original Release (8/21/17 9:00 a.m.)

Baltimore County Police are asking the public's assistance in identifying a person of interest who may have information regarding a series of burglaries that have recently occurred in Towson.



Within the last three weeks there have been a number of completed or attempted burglaries along the York Road and Loch Raven corridors. The suspect(s) primarily target townhome neighborhoods, checking windows and doors to see if they've been left unlocked. Once inside, the burglar(s) quickly take any small valuables, such as wallets, credit cards, phones, cash, and laptop computers or tablets, and immediately leave. In a number of cases, car keys left out in the open have been taken and used to steal the victim's vehicle. A significant number of vehicle thefts have occurred in this manner, with the keys and car being the only items stolen.

Investigators believe these suspects may have ties to the Southeastern district of Baltimore City. Police believe the depicted individual may have information regarding these incidents and are asking for help identifying and locating him.

If you recognize this individual, or have any information on burglaries in the Towson area, contact police by calling 410-307-2020. These incidents continue to be investigated by the Baltimore County Burglary Unit.
