Crime Log: Police Report Sharp Drop in Burglaries

The following information regarding police activity in Cockeysville, Hunt Valley and North County was supplied by the Baltimore County Police Department. In cases where a criminal charge is noted, the information provided does not indicate a conviction.

The number of reported burglaries in the Cockeysville and North County areas dropped sharply during the past two weeks, police incident summaries show.

There were only two reported burglaries reported in the area last week, after averaging about eight a week since the start of the new year.

The decrease follows police increasing patrols in affected areas, particularly the Jacksonville sector of North County. Police reported making two critical arrests in late January they believe will lead to solving more than a dozen area burglaries. 

Meanwhile, there were no reports of major crimes in Lutherville-Timonium.

That may be true for Jacksonsville, but Cockeysville has gotten worse. I was the victim of a car break-in, nothing has been done about my case. They didn't even fingerprint nor has anyone contacted me even though I requested a call from the Captain himself who said he would call me after I went to my local Delegate. Nothing can ever take away the damage that has been done being the victim of a crime, but it would help to know that there was more lighting being put in place or more patrols. We live in Cockeysville off Cranbrook Road and it is horrible. Beatings, robberies, you name it up here. The police simply don't care. All they care about is pulling you over for a speeding ticket to make their quotas.

I would like to add that they did follow up with me and I do feel like something is being done; it is just so disconcerting to know that these criminals are out there floating around looking for prey like myself.

Move to opportunity has been a dismal fate for many long term local residents.
