Police Search For Suspected Perry Hall Copper Burglar

Police responded to the 8800 block of Dove Drive Friday afternoon.

Witnesses reported a man running from a vacant home with stolen property Friday afternoon in Perry Hall, Baltimore County police said. 

At about 2:13 p.m., in the 8800 block of Dove Drive, a man broke into a home through a basement door and cut copper piping to a water heater. The man then ran away with the copper piping along the tree line toward Honeygo Boulevard, according to Julia Hardgrove, a county police spokeswoman. 

Witnesses described the man as a white male in his early 20s, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and baggy blue jeans, Hardgrove said.

Several patrol officers, a unit of police dogs and a police helicopter responded to the area, she said, but they were unable to locate the suspect. 

No further details on the incident were available Friday afternoon.

The copper crusader has eluded the copers once again. They seached around my property to no avil. I do wish that they had napped this fool. I would would enjoy seeing him carted off to jail for $ 2.00 worth of copper. What a fool !!!

Just a suggestion...got a camera on your phone? snap a picture so criminals can be identified quickly and duly processed.

Wow...they describe him as a white male. I thought race wasn't included in articles anymore so nobody got offended.

How much copper could a copper chopper chop if a copper chopper could uncoptered chop copper?

Indeed, hoodies are the 'invisibility cloaks' of today's youth. And I do not mean to infer that all people wearing hoodies are criminals...

Good point, Bob. I suppose what we can take from that is if race is not mentioned we can assume the suspect was black?

I may need to install more survailance cameras around my place. Did not catch the hooded copper crusader on my exsiting ones.

P.S. BJ 's sell them at a very cheap price and come either wireless or easy to install hard wire.
