In the past weeks, Precinct 8 has been hammered with car thefts from cars that are left running while warming them up, keys left in the ignition and doors not locked. Please, please, please stop starting cars and leaving them running while you go indoors. In the last week 38 cars were stolen in Baltimore County, 66 were left running and unattended which means 25 out of 38 thefts were preventable. Countywide 50% of the cars stolen were left running with 4 of them in Dunfield area.
On a lighter note, I would like to Congratulate Pete Mazza, Director of PCRC 8, who is the new President of the PCRC Executive Council. We are very proud of him and very happy for him and his accomplishments.
Captain Steve Troutman
