In a neighborhood where burglaries have risen in the past year, a police captain talks about the investigation and safety.
In one year, there have been more than 30 residential burglaries in the Dunloggin neighborhood, according to Howard County Police Northern District Capt. Daniel Coon. Police are asking for residents’ help, not only to find suspects in some of the open cases, but also to limit some of the preventable crimes. Eight of the 32 burglary cases have been closed by arrest, Coon said Wednesday night at a Saint John's Community Association meeting at First Lutheran Church. Police have suspects in five of the burglaries – “We have a pretty good idea who it is, but are still gathering evidence.” In the remaining 12 – including this Dec. 28 burglary – police do not have suspects, Coon said. Dunloggin is not unique in its recent increase in burglaries…
Howard County Police say the picture shows a burglary in progress in the St. John's Lane neighborhood.
Howard County Police are working on closing one of about a dozen unsolved burglaries from the last year in the St. John’s Lane area. These pictures, from a resident’s home surveillance system, show a man who police say broke into a home on the 3600 block of Macalpine Road on Dec. 28, 2012. According to police, the burglar entered the home between about 7:50 and 9:30 p.m. by forcing open a back window. Once inside, the burglar ransacked the home and stole jewelry. Police are asking anyone with information about the burglary to call 410-313-STOP or using the county’s smartphone application, iWatchHowardCounty. Tips may be made anonymously.
