Yesterday, April 17, 2018, we were able to make an arrest of an individual who was responsible for breaking into numerous vehicles in the West Joppa- Riderwood area of the Towson Precinct. He is also responsible for another one in the Lakehurst/Dembeigh Hill area. Detective Bracken from the Towson Investigative Services Team was able to develop a suspect who was subsequently apprehended by members of the Regional Auto Theft Task Force in Baltimore City. All the incidents were classified as 4th degree burglaries, because the vehicles entered were parked in driveways.
Please inform your community members to take appropriate security precautions, because the majority of these vehicles were left unlocked by the homeowner with valuable property left inside.
I appreciate everyone working with us and together we are making a difference.
