Last Wednesday, we reported observing a mysterious arrest in Roland Park the evening prior, in front of Petit Louis, around 9 p.m. This week, we have confirmed with Detective Jeremy Silbert, a city police spokesman, that the arrested (and bespectacled + bald, I can attest) male, 55, was driving a stolen vehicle through the area. The investigation was conducted at 8:35 p.m. on January 17 — the car apprehended in the 4700 block of Roland Avenue. Silbert said that the Regional Auto-Theft Task Force, with reps from various law enforcement agencies, helped with the investigation. Car was towed upon discovery. I know, we’re all wondering if the man in specs stole a Porsche or a Taurus, but no further information is available at this time. Go here to snag tips on keeping your car safe, from the Maryland Vehicle Theft Prevention Council.

  1. Hmm, some great tips from MSP: “lock the car.”

    .I have another, at least as good: drive a car they don’t want to steal. No Beemer, or Porsche – – who has ever heard of a Saturn or Subaru getting stolen?

  2. Actually, Saturns and Subarus are stolen way more than Bimmers or Porsches for several reasons. First, there are lots more of them. Second, they generally have fewer security features so they are easier to steal, and finally, while most thieves are stealing cars for parts, for those who are, there is a much bigger market for Subaru and Saturn parts because there are more of them on the road. Historically, the most frequently stolen cars tend to line up with the most popular makes and models.
