From the Baltimore County Police:
“Baltimore County Police are asking the public for assistance in identifying a burglar who attempted to enter an occupied home in the 1100 block of Arran Road in Towson just after midnight on Friday, October 6.
The burglar was caught on the homeowner’s surveillance camera entering an exterior sunroom at 12:04 a.m., peeking through the sliding glass door into the kitchen where the resident was walking around. At 12:06 a.m., the burglar can been seen in the video walking around the sunroom carrying what appears to be a handgun in his right hand, attempting to open the sliding glass door. He quickly leaves when he is spooked by the homeowner’s dog.
The burglar left the yard for about 6 minutes before returning through a rear gate at 12:12 a.m., again attempting to open the sliding glass door. This time the dog can be heard frantically barking, and the burglar flees the location through the rear gate. The homeowner then exited the house and followed the dog to the rear gate, where he saw the suspect fleeing through a back alley.
Anyone with information on the identity of this suspect is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. The Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.
Metro Crime Stoppers, an organization that is separate from the Baltimore County Police Department and Baltimore County Government, offers rewards for information in connection with felony offenses.
Anonymous tips can be sent to Metro Crime Stoppers by phone, text message or online.
