Baltimore County police have requested the public's help in locating a man suspected of two daytime home burglaries—a in November 2011 and a last month.

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, .

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, . 

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.

Does it really matter what someone has in their house? You're missing the point! And as stated earlier...the guy broke through a basement window..the door was not left unlocked...the responding officer did not check the perimeter of the house he assumed the door was unlocked! The Forensic Officers found the broken window!! This is a forum to help protect and advise the Perry Hall Community, not to criticize the victims!
