Detectives are actively continuing an investigation into one armed robbery and another attempted armed robbery of convenience stores in the Towson Precinct early this morning.

The same suspects committed a robbery at a Royal Farms Store in the 7200 block of York Road around 4:30 a.m., then attempted another armed robbery at a 7-Eleven store on Sherwood Road. Officers searched the area but were not able to apprehend the suspects.

The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is continuing the investigation into these robberies this evening. Anyone who may have information on these crimes is asked to contact Robbery Unit detectives by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

Callers may also be eligible for a reward when submitting tips through Metro Crime Stoppers and may submit tips anonymously.

Over the last month a number of cars have been broken into across the county. There is no particular area that is immune. There is a way to stop some of these thefts – lock your doors.

This may not be a foolproof way to stop them, but thieves are opportunists. They will walk along and check to see which vehicle is unlocked and which isn’t. The odds are that the thief will go for the unlocked vehicle.

We are, for the most part, careful about locking our vehicles while at work, school or shopping, but we tend to be less mindful of locking up when we are home. Don’t get a false sense of security just because the vehicle is in front of your home or in your driveway. Lock your doors!

Thieves are looking for a number of items - change in the cup holder, cellphones, laptops, anything of value. House keys are especially valuable. Not only has the thief gotten into your vehicle, he now has access to your home.

Don’t leave your garage door opener inside your vehicle in full view. This enables thieves to access other items such as bicycles, lawn equipment and maybe another vehicle or even your home.

Lock your vehicle doors at all times. Make life difficult for thieves.
