Lutherville-Timonium started off the year strong, with zero major crimes to report in the area. Week 2 however, we were not so fortunate.
There were five reported burglaries ranging from homes, to cars and to one business. The most harrowing entry depicted a multi-car smash-and-grab job on Greenmeadow Drive.
Last week, we were able to debut the new crime map over in Hunt Valley-Cockeysville Patch. This week, we're doing it here.
The orange pegs seen on the map indicate the approximate locations of major crimes (burglaries, robberies, etc.) reported in the Lutherville-Timonium. We'll continue to add pegs to the map, built using MapQuest Map Builder, as the year goes on. This will give us a good look at where the more troublesome areas are in our community.
