Several incidents of vandalism occurred in September and mid-October in the section of the Pheasant Ridge neighborhood closest to River Hill High School. These incidents have similarities to vandalism that occurred in May 2016 which has remained unsolved. The recent cases included smashed car windows, slashed tires, defaced vehicles, and references to “rag doll.” A police investigation is underway and area patrols have been increased.
In addition to reporting crimes in progress, any type of action or circumstance that seems unusual should be reported by calling 911. A quick and accurate description of events, vehicles and persons can make all the difference in apprehending a potential criminal.
If you have been a victim of a crime, the police department asks that you ALWAYS file a report. This helps them to identify trends and target their efforts. A late report is better than no report. To file a late report, call 410-313-2200.
In the wake of the recent vandalism, the Association is coordinating with the Police Department to schedule a community meeting. Watch for an announcement of the date and time.
