Apartments in North Laurel and Savage were targeted in a string of eight daytime burglaries and attempted break-ins last week. Jewelry, coins and other items were taken in the burglaries, which police suspect are linked.

On Nov. 24, burglars entered two apartments in the 9700 block of Mountain Laurel Way in the Country Meadows neighborhood of North Laurel, police said. The next day, two more break-ins in that block were reported.

Also on Wednesday, an attempted break-in was reported nearby in the 9700 block of Country Meadows Lane, and three burglaries occurred in the 8500 block of Storch Woods Drive in Savage, police said.

Jewelry, coins, camera equipment, VCRs, cologne, luggage and women's shoes were among the items taken, police said.

There was no sign of forced entry in any of the burglaries, said police, who believe that the intruders entered the apartments between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Witnesses gave police descriptions of two possible suspects, although the men were not seen together.

One was described as a white man, between 28 and 30, 5 feet 9 inches, 180 pounds, with dark-brown, curly, short hair, and a dark mustache, police said. He was wearing a gray denim jacket with a black "V" on the front of his blue jeans. He was seen in a black vehicle with a spoiler on the rear.

The second suspect is a black man in his mid-40s, 5 feet 9 inches, and 180 pounds. He has a medium complexion and short-cropped hair. He wore glasses, gray slacks, a gray button-down sweater, a light-colored shirt and a tie. He was seen entering a black four-door vehicle, possibly a Ford Taurus.
