Man Wanted for Towson, Perry Hall Burglaries
Police said they are looking for Alvin Saleem Elamin Thompson, identified as a suspect in two daytime burglaries.
Police described 20-year-old Alvin Saleem Elamin Thompson as a black male, 5 foot 9 inches tall, about 180 pounds, with short black hair and a light complexion. He has been seen driving a black 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII with the license plate 1AL2707, according to a press release.
Between 2 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Nov. 9, a handgun, about $1,200 in cash, jewelry and purses were reported stolen from a police officer's home in the 1300 block of Glendale Road in Towson. Investigators believed the burglar entered through a rear bedroom window, Patch reported.
Between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 13, about $8,000 in cash and $20,000 in jewelry were reported stolen from a home in the 4200 block of Garland Ave. in Perry Hall. A rear door had been left unlocked and there were no signs of forced entry, Patch reported.
Detectives linked Thompson to the burglaries and discovered that he had taken property from both burglaries to pawn shops in Baltimore County and Baltimore City, according to a press release.
At this time, there are no known connections between Thompson and several other home burglaries reported in the Perry Hall area last month, officials said.
A reward of up to $2,000 is also available to anyone with information leading to his arrest. Metro Crime Stoppers can be contacted by phone at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587), by text message at "CRIMES" (274637), starting the message with "MCS," or by email at www.metrocrimestoppers.org.
