Police: Thieves Target Area Autos

There were nine reported thefts from automobiles between Sunday and Monday.

Police are increasing patrols hoping to stop a spate of thefts after several cars were broken into during a recent 48 hour period, according to Precinct 7 Lt. Robert McGraw. 

There were nine incidents reported in the Precint 7 coverage area between Sunday Jan. 20 and Monday Jan. 21. Precinct 7 stretches from Lutherville north to the state line. Petty thefts from cars have however been an issue since the start of the new year (see related content below).

"We've been getting hit by thefts from autos ... across the precinct," McGraw said. "We're not sure if it's one or multiple groups at this point."

He added that police are following up on a number of leads at this time.

The majority of the thefts were facilitated by an unlocked door, although in some instances the thief actually smashed a window to pilfer the valuables inside.

The most recently affected areas include:

  • 1000 block, Adcock Road, Lutherville
  • Unit block, Meadow Run Court, Sparks
  • Unit block, Stoddard Court, Sparks
  • Unit block, William Court, Sparks
