TOWSON — Members of the Patterson Park Neighborhood Initiative presented a $500 Kodak digital camera yesterday to the Southeastern Police District's Patterson Park Outreach Team.

Lt. Carmine Baratta said the team works with several organizations to address community issues and that the camera will help team members identify people suspected of committing crimes.

The digital camera stores pictures electronically and will allow police to display images immediately on computer screens from discs or tapes.

TOWSON -- Six homes on three roads in Rodgers Forge were hit by a cat burglar early yesterday morning, Baltimore County police said, and the thief took money and credit cards from each house.

Two burglaries occurred in the 300 block of Dunkirk Road, according to Sgt. Kevin B. Novak, county police spokesman. Three others were reported in the 100 block of Overbrook Road, and a sixth in the 500 block of Murdock Road.

The burglaries occurred between 2 a.m. and 6: 30 a.m., Novak said. In each case, the burglar gained access through an unlocked window at the rear of the house. "We are urging folks to keep their homes secured," Novak said.
