About 11 vehicles were broken into near Bradshaw Road in Kingsville overnight, April 3-4, police said.
The burglaries bear striking resemblance to .
"Obviously, it's a similar scenario where folks are leaving their vehicles unlocked," said Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct.
Video surveillance during the Philadelphia Road break-ins showed three, possibly four, white males wearing hooded sweatshirts at the scene. Brooks, however, said there is not yet conclusive evidence to connect these men to the latest string of break-ins.
Residential communities surrounding Bradshaw Road are somewhat rural and are not well-lit at night, Brooks said. Many area residents wrongfully leave their vehicles unlocked in front of their homes.
Between Sunday night and early Monday morning:
- five break-ins were reported along the 11500 and 11600 blocks of Franklinville Road,
- two break-ins were reported along the 11500 block of Chapman Road,
- two break-ins were reported along the 11200 block of Pfeffers Road,
- one break-in was reported along the 7900 block of Bradshaw Road and
- one break-in was reported along the 11000 block of McCubbin Avenue.
Although several vehicles were ransacked and one window was broken, nothing was taken from about half of the vehicles, said Brooks, calling this highly unusual.
At least one GPS, a Nook e-reader device and about $250 in cash were stolen from the other vehicles.
Police are continuing to investigate, said Brooks.
