Burglaries

Three areas of county affected

Police are warning residents about similar types of burglaries in three areas of the county. Three cases have been reported since May 12 near the Dundalk, Riderwood and Overlea areas, police said.

Police said the burglars work in twos and threes. One distracts the homeowner while another enters the home and steals cash, jewelry and small electronics.

In one case, two men approached a homeowner and said they had purchased the house next door and wanted to look inside for ideas, police said. During the conversation, one man entered the house and rummaged through the homeowner's bedroom, police said.

The men have been described as white or Hispanic and between the ages of 25 to 35 years. It is unclear whether the three cases are linked, police said.

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to call the county Police Department at 410-307-2020.
