Baltimore County police are looking for one or multiple vandals who went trigger-happy with a pellet gun on parts of East and Southeast Baltimore County last weekend.
In total, authorities received 60 reports of broken glass windows and doors of cars, homes and businesses between their precincts in Dundalk and Essex. All of the incidents happened overnight from Friday, Feb. 24, through the morning of Sunday, Feb. 26.
Police offered few examples, save for the McDonald’s on North Point Boulevard that had its front window broken. Whoever is responsible, they say, used a pellet gun to cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage.
Twenty-six of the reports came from the Essex precinct, while 34 came from Dundalk.
Authorities ask that Baltimore County dwellers keep an eye out for suspicious vehicles this weekend. Anyone with information can call police 410-307-2020 or report a tip anonymously to Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
