Howard officers seek help to solve string of burglaries

January 07, 2001

Howard County police are seeking help from the community in solving a string of burglaries and burglary attempts in the Ellicott City and Elkridge areas.

Police said many of the crimes have taken place in the early evening or in daylight hours when homes are unoccupied. In many cases, the perpetrator kicked in a door to get into a home. Stolen items have included cash, jewelry and electronic and computer equipment.

Police are urging residents to call them if they notice any suspicious activity. Those interested in a free home-security survey may call the department's Community Services Section at 410-313-4780.
