Surveillance images via Baltimore County Police

In an usual announcement, Baltimore County police said this morning that they’re trying to track down a guy who’s burglarized multiple businesses while wearing a suit.

The thievery has been concentrated in the White Marsh and Cockeysville area. According to police, the suspect pictured above has been sneaking through unlocked back doors into facilities ranging from a nursing home to an elementary school. Once inside, he steals laptops and small electronics, police say.

But it’s not the type of contraband or his method that distinguish him – it’s his threads. Police say surveillance cameras captured him wearing a suit during two of the burglaries. His wardrobe is versatile – he was also seen in work overalls in another incident.

Other businesses he’s targeted have included a construction company, medical offices and insurance firms.

Burglars’ methods vary in nature. This man’s approach, for instance, is far more stealthy than the one allegedly employed by Jonathan Karron Newman last November in the infamous naked ceiling-crash-entry burglary of the Slice of Towson pizza shop.

Police were able to identify Newman as their suspect within two weeks of sharing his picture. We’ll have to see if this guy’s suit gives him away in the coming days.

Anyone with info on the pictured man’s identity can call county police at 410-307-2020.
