David Irick had yet to finish fully installing his video surveillance system, so he was pleasantly surprised when his cameras captured a man breaking into his Howard County house earlier this month. The 60-year-old was further astonished when he watched the footage. The bespectacled suspect — dressed in a collared shirt with rolled up sleeves and a red tie — hardly fit the image of a typical burglar. "When I saw the tie, I thought that someone else had come to the house that day as well," Irick said, assuming that the man was a salesman or was taking a survey.

A Baltimore city school is hoping to recover technology and cash after it was buglarized late Sunday night - the third break-in the school had experienced in about a week. City school police are investigating the break-in at Govans Elementary School, which officials said has a silent alarm but doesn't have cameras and was also burglarized twice last week, as recently as Friday. Govans is a high performing neighborhood school - and one of the poorest with about 90 percent of students qualifying for free-and-reduced priced meals - and was recently recognized by the Maryland State Department of Education as one of the state's Title I Highest Performing "Reward Schools" for its academic achievement.

When a burglar broke into more than two dozen apartments in Baltimore County, it wasn't the items he took that were unusual. It was what he left behind. Renters in Cockeysville returned home to find holes in their walls as big as 4 feet by 4 feet. The studs had been removed to allow a grown man to squeeze through from one apartment to the next - without ever unlocking the door. Police chased reports of the so-called drywall burglar for a month before they arrested Robert White.
