Lol! PHP! I was just about to point out "Your very ugly" should be "You're (I am assuming they meant "You are"?) unless they mean to imply they belong to "you", and it is them who is very ugly (much like if someone signed a letter "your beloved") I guess they have a low self esteem & feel they are ugly, and belong to the patch community as the ugly member.

PerryHallParent is correct. "Police said the incident appears isolated and is likely not related to other recent home burglaries in the Perry Hall area" is Police Speak for we have no freaking clue or idea how to stop all these crimes. Suppose to make the public feel all warm and safe. Like when someone is shot and they say the victim was "targeted". Well DUH, most victims are targeted and while the burglars might be different on different B&E's they are related in the sense that they are the same type of crime in the same general area and the police can't stop them nor are they required to. Police only have to make a "reasonable effort" whatever that is to catch the crooks and I believe Baltimore Co. Police do the very best they can. But there are just too many thieves among us. Homeowners need to invest in video surveillance equipment and silent alarms to help the police do their job.

Reports of thefts of large amounts of money from a residence are always very suspicious. Who keeps that kind of money in their house? There's certainly more to this story.

Well, maybe not - Perhaps it is a partial statement as in Your Very Ugly (place relationship here). Your Very Ugly Neighbor, or Your Very Ugly Boyfriend. But probably not.

Well the title says $10000 cash COMMA jewelry stolen. Kinda leading me to believe 2 seperate items...the 10 large in cash then jewelry on top. But the story reads $10000 in cash AND jewelry leading me to believe it could be $20 in cash and $9980 in jewelry. Caus you guys are right...10 large in cash in your home...not smart.

I was thinking the same thing as Mr. Pierce. Who keeps 10K in cash in their house? People who sell drugs, that's who! The story is not clear, though. It may have been 9K in jewelry and 1K in cash. And for insurance purposes, the jewelry is usually over valued. That being said, over the summer, I took all of my jewelry to a relative's house in PA and never keep more than $100 cash in the house. Quite sad, really. My neighbor has an alarm system, but one door malfunctioned and their house was robbed on Thanksgiving. So even having an alarm system can't keep you and your belongings safe.

Thanks for pointing out the confusion in the headline. Word like "in" and "and" are often left out of replaced with commas in headlines, but to add clarity, I've updated it with this - $10K in Cash and Jewelry Stolen From Perry Hall Home

I am again going to state that patrols of the areas would deter burglaries. if i burglar is on guard about an officer possibly interupting a break in, they may be less inclined to actually break in. i know we cannot have patrols of every neighborhood every day, but i am thinking that less radar on Bel Air, Raphael, and Philadelphia roads could lead to more neighborhood patrolling. If there is a police presence it shows that efforts are being stepped up to ensure safety. all i see is the county making money off speed traps. And to assume that because someone has a large amount of cash in there home must mean they are a drug dealer is ridiculous. Maybe they are tired of paying large fees at a bank. Maybe instead of attacking each other on this issue, we could try to come up with some prevention tips.

Emily fyi i was in noooo way bein critical of your use of a comma lol. Im not smart enough to correct anyone. I love reading your articles! Keep up the great work.

why are you asking who keeps 10k in cash in their house, it's their right to keep any amount of cash they want in their home. Why do you always judge the motives of the victim?
Tim January 28, 2013 at 09:16 PM
MD Mom: Because it's stupid to do so, that's why. Categorically stupid.
Eric Martin January 28, 2013 at 11:29 PM
When police investigate a crime they must leave no stone unturned. By that I mean that a homeowner reporting a large amount of cash that cannot be traced raises red flags for a police investigator. Insurance fraud is a possibility in any crime where large amounts of cash are involved. Then there is the drug connection, something that police cannot overlook. Of course the story does not give many details of the investigation so all of this is pure speculation. But this kind of thing cannot be ignored as a possibility.

Yes, let's keep obsessing over the victims possessions. Why would they dare keep valuables in their home, especially worth more than any of their concerned neighbors would have in their own homes. Or let's accuse them of being drug dealers, or defrauding the insurance company because they couldn't just have been victims of a burglary! No, they seduced and enticed the would be thief into their home. Who cares about what the burglar looked like or what method he used to enter the house or if there were any other clues that the neighborhood should be on the lookout for - let's keep laser focus on the AMOUNT of goods that were stolen and continue to watch CSI to hone our skills to deduce that the real criminal lives within!!
