Police warn Baltimore County residents about deception burglaries
The Baltimore County Police Department is warning residents about criminals who use deception to enter homes and steal property.
The suspects are very clever and good at pretending that they are someone that they are not.
They will approach their victims and claim that they are from organizations such as Baltimore County, the Water Department, or BGE.
They will tell the victim that they need to check something such as water pipes, or need to do some type of inspection.
While one suspect distracts the victim, another suspect will enter the home and steal money, jewelry, and other valuable items.
Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit detectives work very hard to solve these crimes, but they need the public’s help. If you have any information on any deception burglaries, please call police at 410-3072020.
