From Southern District Commander Brian Hance in regards to the increase:

There has been a increase in shed / garage burglaries. Suspect (s) are taking bike from the locations during the overnight hours. Please call 911 immediately when you see suspicious activity. If you hear noise or a disturbance in the alleys, call police to investigate. Make sure you give the best description possible. When individuals commit crime, sometimes they attempt to change their clothing after a crime, however many times they do not change their shoes. Keep that in mind. Police will increase patrols to address this matter. If you have any video or further information that can aid the police, please call our detectives at the Southern District. Request to speak with a District Detective.( 410-396-2499)
