Seriously, i would think 9am is a pretty busy time with people coming and going to work. but this is a great spot for a quick get away. close to 95 and woods.

I saw the helicopter, but it was too far away to tell if it was the police or a traffic 'copter - I was hoping for traffic, but...

Awful to think someone is waiting and watching for you to leave. It says befor 9 am And the woods all around makes it to easy to hide then flee. At 9 am most people are already on their way to work. I have noticed in my neighborhood the flow of traffic, joggers, trash trucks and school busses are very active from 6:30 - 9:00 am From the time the High School bus till when the last Elementary School bus goes thru it is crazy active. Pretty peacefull after that all day. If you see someone that looks strange to you and it just doesn't sit right make the call....It's better to have it checked out then to be sorry...I have ! It's ashame this keeps going on ....Someone is going to get hurt.

This is becoming a daily thing! What the hell? We all need to keep our eyes open during the day and night. To think this is one type of person is also not an option. The people arrested lately were: white, black, young, old, clean cut, thugish, on foot, by car....

I was out walking with my baby and saw the cops. No one told me not to take a walk! I cut the walk short because I was scared but didn't know what wa going on. I wish the cops would have warned me there was a burglar on the loose!!!

Mkce, being where the police are pretty much ensures that the burglar won't be there.

i check the patch everyday. I live on this court & this is the first i heard of this happening .there are plenty of residents still home at that hour but with the woods & honeygo right there it is easy to flee. we need to keep our neighborhood safe! everyone keep a lookout & watch out for eachother .

We currently live in this townhome community and I happened to be outside as the helicopter was hovering around in circles. The neighbors and I thought it was the local traffic/accident helicopter. It would have been nice if maybe one of the police officers that were circle through would have let us know what was going on or atleast gave us a warning. This is a time of day when we tend to keep our guard down!!!!

This is all crazy. I dont assume it is one type of person or persons. I have believed from the beginning that there have been several different people, if not a group of people behind the break ins. I think some type of public annoucement or flyer should go out. There are still many elderly people in the area that do not use the computer and the local media has not covered any of this. Guess someone will have to be injured before they will report it (God forbid).

I just had to add some of your post to Facebook Patch...You are so right about the gender. I am so tired of people blaming the kids because they are out of school ! People really do need to open their eyes ! thanks
DK June 20, 2012 at 08:40 PM
I agree...This is Serious.
Kim June 20, 2012 at 08:57 PM
I am right across the street and saw the police and heard the helicopter. That is crazy. Glad I work from home so my house is never empty.

I'm also aware that not everyone uses the Internet to get news. In the past, however, Patch's reporting on certain Perry Hall issues has encouraged TV and print media to shape up and start covering some of those things, too. Please let those without Internet know that they can check Perry Hall Patch at public libraries and the homes of neighbors and family members, as well.

I saw the silver toyota corolla and two white males driving suspiciously through my court last night at 2:30am when I was walking my dog (cause he had to go to the bathroom). I knew they were not from my court so I observed them from behind a tree as they drove through my court slowly... at their exiting pass they saw me and peeled off fast. I figured it was suspicious and they were up to no good; but not worthy of a call to the station. Thank you police for posting the real IDs and descriptions of the suspects you have been seeking. If I heard this newly released description prior of suspects you are seeking, I would have called ASAP last night and you may have had your guys.The description of the car and a white male made all the difference! I called White Marsh Precinct about an hour ago to supply the info from last night. FULL DESCRIPTIONS make a huge difference! Maybe County Police need a emergency text service that we could sign up for. Just Saying.

We (citizens) need to know the exact descriptions and situations. I understand when police are hot on the trail and can say nothing, but they are hot on nothing. We are the eyes of the communities and know, can find, or witness the criminals.

Kim, a lot of these thugs DON'T CARE if you are home or not. If you are home, you need to have a plan...or a gun.
ARG June 21, 2012 at 01:06 PM
I have found that no only neighbors in my imediate area are unaware but other Perry Hall/White Marsh/ Kingsville residents have no idea these things are happening. I have run into several people who knew nothing, i have advised themto look at 'the patch' for info. Their first response is 'i didnt see anything on tv' . i am not sure why the news outlets find this unimportant.
Kim June 21, 2012 at 01:22 PM

I don't think its because they find it unimportant but if they do this for Perry Hall and all other areas we are going to need longer news program. Like many things people need to take a responsibility and find out what is going on in their neighborhood. Its not enough to sit back and assume someone is going to give you the info. Maybe sad but true.
