Police Investigating Attempted Casa Mia's Burglary

The Perry Hall carryout restaurant received about $1,500 in damage on Sunday.

Police responded to an attempted burglary at a Perry Hall carryout restaurant on Sunday.

Between midnight and 3:11 a.m. on Oct. 14, in the 8600 block of Honeygo Boulevard, investigators believe a burglar pried open a rear door to Casa Mia's. The burglar was unable to enter the restaurant, however, and nothing was taken, according to a police report.

The burglar caused about $1,500 in damage to two locks and the door, the police report showed.

Capt. Michael Balog of the White Marsh police precinct urged area residents to report suspicious activity—especially vehicles driving slowly behind businesses late at night—by calling 911 immediately.

Maybe if businesses used very loud alarms that operate when a burglary is in progress, neighbors would hear the alarm and call police. If anything, I think it would scare the burglars away.

Wow, the overnight burglars are back, it seems :/

The police want you to call 911 to report suspicious activity but when you do most police officers don't do anything about it or if they show up in the area they ignore the details you give, like the direction the person went, and are nasty with you like you are wasting their time.

I did that once with a suspicious person snooping around a neighbor's window in the middle of the night when I was up with a baby. I called police and found out they told the neighbors after I said yes to wishing to remain anonymous I called and it was the girl's boyfriend trying to find a way in to get to her. They responded by telling me to mind my own business and the boyfriend threatened to 'key my truck' and 'make me pay' for embarrassing him. The police said they couldn't do anything until he acted upon his threats. Nice. I won't be reporting anything again, ever.

Please post the company who installed the rear door and their locksmith we will all be needing them soon. There goes the neighborhood! Police do what they can but they don't prevent breakins/robberies and the like. They, like the fire department, are first "responders" however they are great advisors and more people should listen to their advice. As I get older my weapons are keen observations of my surroundings and the years of expereince dealing with those trying to hurt me and my family and one thing a perp doesn't want is mess with a man who has an attitude and presence of mind for virtually any situation. Several months ago I was approached by two thugs in Towson who had a weapon in their pocket or at least wanted to make me think they had a weapon (I could see the outline of a finger through the windbreaker) they wanted my wallet and I yelled "No F'ing way punks and if you want some Sh*t, as I pulled out a 3 " blade from my rear pocket and said "it has been about 35 years since I've killed anyone (VietNam) which of you idiots wants to get cut bad first?" One guy looked at the other and said this sucker is crazy and took off running down the street. If you are going to the Mall or the Avenue go in a group, park in a group... thugs tend not to approach groups unless they are drug crazed. We are our brother's keeper and responsible for the security of our brothers and sisters.

Part Two Attention Mall and Shopping Area Managers - Start hiring Security companies that hire agile, serious security guards who are dressed smartly and have a paramilitary bearing and a sense of duty. The guards I have seen at local shopping areas are leaning on the wall with a foot on the wall talking on their cell phones and sipping on a soda or worse eating. Head gear must be on while on duty and off when engaging in chow breaks. No cell phones while on active duty. And for goddness sakes make sure these men and women can run! I am 66 and can cover 100 yards in 15 seconds (after that well... I am tuckered out and become prey fiesty but still prey) should a Mall Security guard be as equally fast as they often are at the scene? Patrons of Malls demand better and each of us should talk with management or raise a ruckus on these pages.
