I feel like I live in the armed robbery capital of the world right now or is it that we just hear more about the robberies?

The more the general public hears about the crimes and hears about how the crimals are ALL being caught and caught quickly, the better off we are. If there's a reputation of quick resolution of crimes in our area, potential criminals will choose different areas to target.

I go into the Perry Hall Subways all of the time. Baltimore Co. police are really good about watching over that area. I was shocked that this robbery happened I believe it is the first one there that I can remember. I want to thank the police department for all their presence in that area and a fine job that they do.
