Lutherville-Timonium Crime: Cameras Catch Burglars in the Act

The following information was supplied by the Baltimore County Police Department. In cases where a criminal charge is noted, the information provided does not indicate a conviction.


West Seminary Avenue, 1000 block, between 11:30 a.m., Sept. 19 and 10 p.m., Sept. 20. An electric bike was stolen out of an unlocked garage. 

Merrie Hunt Drive, 300 block, between 3:20 p.m. and 3:32 p.m., Sept. 18. Two or three plaid button down shirts were stolen. The burglar was caught on surveillance camera sneaking in through an unlocked door. 

York Road, 2100 block, 3 a.m., Sept. 16. A burglar "severely" cut his leg trying to break into an ATM at Zips Dry Cleaners. The burglar and his partner cut the phone lines with a saw after entering through the front door. Both suspects were caught on camera trying to saw into the ATM before the tool slipped, severely cutting his leg. Both men left in a silver minivan heading northbound. 

Zips, by the way, is a very unlucky business.

How can folks be arrested for protesting the war in Afghanistan but not the people who protest outside of hospitals and schools with their anti-abortion porn. I am going to end up getting arrested for protesting those jokers.
