NORTH BALTIMORE - A string of car break-ins have been reported in the village.
Over the past week, eight to 10 cars have been broken into throughout the village, police Chief Allan Bear told council on Tuesday.
"I wouldn't say it's a 'rash,' but, in my opinion, eight is too many," Baer said.
Something notable about the crimes, he said, is that in all of the incidents the suspect or suspects broke the windows out of the vehicle to gain access.
"This person is actually shattering the window, making noise and taking that risk," he said.
The break-ins have been reported throughout the village on Main, Broadway, Water, East and Taylor streets, among others.
In many of the cases, Baer said, the vehicle owners have had high-value items in plain site. He advised residents to not leave valuables in their vehicle and to report any suspicious activity to police.
"If you see something, say something. Give us a call," he said.
"If you see someone walking down an alley in the middle of the night, call us," Baer said.
Some of the property stolen in the break-ins has been recovered and police are continuing to investigate.
"They are going through it and throwing it down a block away," he said of the stolen property.
Also at Tuesday's meeting, council members approved a three-year contract with Henry Township for the North Baltimore Fire Department to provide the township fire services.
