Here’s a message from Captain Jay Landsman, Jr.:
Precinct 6 Communities,
Since Sunday night, 2/5/17, at 1100 PM, we have experienced 3 cat burglaries in the communities off of Loch Raven Blvd.
1700 block of Weston Avenue – On 2/5/17, the victims went to bed at 2300 hours and woke up on 2/6/17 at 0758 AM and noticed that the house was very cold. They discovered that their back door was open and a living room window was ajar. The suspects stole a television along with the victim’s purse as well as the keys to the victim’s Toyota Corolla.
1500 block of Cottage Lane – On 2/7/17, at 0338 AM, victim was woken up by the sound of her dining room window breaking. The victim screamed when she saw a black male in a dark sweat shirt wearing a yellow or orange beanie style hat climbing through the dining room window. The suspect fled when the victim screamed.
1600 block of Feldbrook Road – On 2/6/17, the victims went to bed at 1100 PM and woke up at 0500 AM on 2/7/17 to find a kitchen window open. The wife’s purse was rummaged through and the keys to both of their vehicles were gone, along with the vehicles.
Additionally, we have experienced several thefts of Dodge Caravans and Honda products in the Hillendale area.
I have directed our officers to pay special attention to these neighborhoods and we are deploying plain clothes and uniformed resources to the area. I am encouraging all COP and community groups to report all suspicious activity in these areas to 911 immediately. Together, we can put some real pressure on these suspects. I would also like to provide the following list of crime prevention tips to help shrink the window of opportunity for these criminals:
Suspects are always looking for the unsuspecting, quick and easy target. BE AWARE and BE VIGILANT! The goal for the police and the community is to frustrate the criminals to the point that they no longer find our area desirable. We can do this through practical preventive measures, preventive patrols and by arresting suspects when these incidents occur. Thank you all for caring so much about your neighborhoods!
