Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit are asking for help identifying a burglary suspect in connection with at least two commercial burglaries, one in Baltimore County and one in Harford County.

This suspect struck Carroll Motor Fuels gas station and convenience store at Harford Road and Sunshine Avenue in Kingsville around 2:22 a.m. on Wednesday morning, January 23. The suspect, whose face is concealed, entered the store by shattering a window, stole cartons of cigarettes, and fled the location on foot. The suspect was caught on store surveillance video behind the store counter stealing the cigarettes.

The same suspect is believed to have committed a similar burglary in Harford County last year, on March 4, 2018, around 1 a.m. In that burglary he shattered a window and entered the Royal Farms store in the 3000 block of Jarrettsville Pike in Monkton, again stealing a number of cartons of cigarettes and fleeing on foot.

Anyone who may have additional information on these burglaries or can help identify this suspect is asked to contact Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit detectives by calling 410-307-2020, or contact the Harford County Sheriff's Office, Detective Aksomitus, at 410-836-5427 or Harford Crime Solvers at 1-888-540-8477. Callers may remain anonymous.

UPDATE (October 3, 2018 10:00 a.m.):

Royal Farm robbery suspectWhile a number of tips were received regarding this armed robber's identity following our original release after he robbed a Royal Farms store in Halethorpe on July 21, none have yielded a positive identification on this suspect. Now he has struck again - at another Royal Farms store in Halethorpe. Police are hoping surveillance images from his most recent crime will finally help to identify this potentially dangerous criminal.

Detectives obtained better images of the armed robber when he struck again on Sunday, September 23. He entered the store at 4308 Washington Boulevard around 5:40 a.m., displayed a firearm to the clerk, and demanded cash. In this case he was caught on camera leaving in a silver crossover type vehicle (pictured below), believed to be an Acura MDX.

This armed robber is described as being a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build and short dark hair. If you recognize this man or have any information on this robbery or his previous robbery (see original release below) call police at 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is currently investigating both robbery cases involving this suspect.

 

Original Release (August 9, 2018 2:04 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect in these surveillance images.

This man, described as a white male about six feet tall with a slender build and short dark hair, entered the Royal Farms store at 4384 Hollins Ferry Road, 21227 on July 21 around 2:38 a.m. He was carrying a long gun and immediately walked right behind the counter to the clerk, taking the entire cash drawer from the register. He was last seen fleeing behind a nearby 7-Eleven store.

Anyone who thinks they recognize this armed robber is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying four suspects involved in a 2nd degree burglary of a liquor store in Essex two weeks ago which included the theft of scratch-off lottery tickets.

Detectives have obtained surveillance video of two of the suspects who are responsible for breaking out a window and entering the Wine and Spirits liquor store at 139 Orville Road, 21220 around 11:48 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6. One suspect is significantly taller than the other with a distinctive walk, which detectives hope will help lead to his identification. The two suspects loitered outside of the liquor store (as seen here) before the shorter of the two broke out a front window and entered the store, taking cigarettes and scratch-off lottery tickets from a display case. The taller suspect remained outside, acting as a lookout, until they both fled the area on foot.

A second set of suspects, believed to be a male and a female with a partially shaven head, were caught on surveillance camera attempting to cash some of the stolen lottery tickets at a Royal Farms store on Eastern Avenue near Kane Street in Baltimore City.

Anyone with information on this crime or any of the four suspects involved is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. The Baltimore County Burglary Unit continues to investigate this crime.
