Cameo Terrace Latest of 3 Perry Hall Burglaries
Police are investigating three home burglaries over the past week in Perry Hall.
An incident on Cameo Terrace early Friday morning is the latest of three home burglaries reported in Perry Hall this week.
A Maryland State Police helicopter, K-9 unit and several police officers responded to the 5000 block of Cameo Terrace, near Honeygo Village Center, at about 2:15 a.m. on Jan. 6 after a reported burglary, according to a police report.
A resident heard a noise on the first floor of his home and felt cold air coming in through a window. He then saw a man standing in the living room, according to a police report.
The resident tried to prevent the man from exiting through a window, but "the suspect escaped his grasp and fled on foot," the report stated.
Nothing was taken from the home, although the suspect caused about $50 in damage to a window screen, the report shows.
Two additional burglaries were reported in the Perry Hall area on the night of Jan. 3.
On the 8000 block of Tammy Road, $1,000 in crystal wedding dinnerware was reported missing from a home that had been vacant since Nov. 27, according to a police report. Sometime before 11:35 p.m. on Jan. 3, a suspect appeared to have entered the home through an unlocked window and may have been sleeping at the location, according to the report.
About a half a mile north of Tammy Road, on the 4200 block of Darnall Road, between 2:15 p.m. and 8:50 p.m. on Jan. 3, a kitchen window was destroyed and the home was ransacked, according to a police report. A silver coin collection, four handguns, cash, swords and jewelry were stolen, a police report shows.
"Being around the same time and location, we are trying to establish further connections," Balog said.
He encouraged anyone who observes suspicious activity in the Perry Hall area to call 911 immediately. He added that additional officers will be patrolling the areas near these burglaries.
