Police Tell Residents to Stay Vigilant for Summer

Detectives with the Baltimore County Police Department remind residents to remain vigilant as the weather warms. This is the time of year when criminals impersonating legitimate contractors, handypersons, or utility workers appear in local neighborhoods looking for unsuspecting homeowners to deceive, scam or burglarize. These transient imposters/deception burglars often work in tandem to gain access to your home. While one person pulls you away to discuss the paving of your driveway, the other culprit is looking to gain entry into the house. Please report any suspicious individuals or activity by immediately calling 911. If possible, take note of license tag numbers, vehicle descriptions, or suspect descriptions without putting yourself at risk. If obtained, be sure to provide the information to the responding officers.

The scammers appear unannounced. They may drop the name of a neighbor to disarm you.
They are always offering a deal! Remember, if what they offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Contact the Better Business Bureau to verify the contractor’s background.
Ask a neighbor or friend to recommend a reliable contractor.
NEVER pay upfront for work; ALWAYS pay after the job.
Do not let someone in your home you are not expecting – regardless of what they tell you.
Take a minute to study what the person looks like (height, facial hair, weight, tattoo, etc.)
If you feel unsafe, call 911 immediately.

The suspect knocks on your door or approaches you while you are outside working in your yard, washing your automobile, etc. They claim to need your help or offer to do the construction or maintenance-type work outside your home. This offer requires you to accompany the suspect to look at your roof, fence, check property lines, etc. While the first suspect diverts your attention outside, a second suspect enters your home and steals money, jewelry, and other valuables before you return. It may be days before you realize you have been victimized.

Another scenario involves the suspect(s) inquiring about the purchase of an item that you have displayed outside for sale (e.g., car, boat, camper trailer, etc.). The first suspect will distract the homeowner, while a second suspect enters the home and steals your valuables. The suspect sometimes agrees to purchase the item to get you more interested (or, in this scenario, more distracted) and decides to return with the money. For obvious reasons, they never return.

A similar scenario can also take place inside your home. The suspect will come to your door claiming to be a representative of a utility, cable, telephone company, etc. They will ask you to let them in to test the service. While you are assisting the first suspect, who you believe to be a legitimate representative, the second suspect enters the home and steals your valuables.

Juveniles Arrested for Destruction to Cars

On Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at approximately 12:25 a.m., Baltimore County Police officers responded to the 6600 block of Loch Hill Road in reference to a destruction of property call.

When officers arrived on the scene, they identified several nearby vehicles that had been broken into. Shortly thereafter, officers located a dark sedan with its engine running at Raven Hill and Loch Hill Roads.

As officers were working to determine whether the vehicle was stolen, two juveniles jumped into the sedan and drove off. Although officers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle several times, the driver refused, placing the lives of officers in danger.

At one point, the suspect vehicle dragged an officer who was attempting to stop the juveniles. The suspect vehicle also struck two marked police cars while attempting to flee.

Officers apprehended the 15 and 14-year-old juvenile suspects at the intersection of Northwood Drive and Pentwood Road. Officers later identified at least five vehicles that were broken into in connection to these suspects.

When officers arrived on the scene, they located a subject suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body. The male victim has been identified as 28-year-old Earl Bodkin Jr.

York Man Arrested for Assault of Uber Driver

Maryland State Police arrested an Uber passenger after he verbally and physically abused the driver yesterday evening in Baltimore County.

The accused is identified as Eduardo Castillo, 30, of no fixed address. Castillo was charged with second degree assault, false imprisonment and other related drug charges. He was transported to St. Joseph Medical Center for treatment. He was later transported to the Baltimore County Detention Center where he was seen by a district court commissioner and later released.

The victim is not being identified at this time. He was the driver of a 2012 Hyundai Accent involved in the incident. He was transported by ambulance to Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) for possible exposure to controlled dangerous substances during the Uber transport.

At about 3:50 p.m. on Friday, April 21, Maryland State Police Golden Ring Barrack received a 9-1-1 call in reference to an Uber driver being held against his will while transporting a passenger. The preliminary investigation revealed an Uber driver picked up a passenger, later identified as Castillo in York, PA. The driver transported Castillo to several locations before driving him to Baltimore City.

During the transport, Castillo reportedly took the driver’s phone several times. The victim advised police that Castillo was also smoking an illegal substance in the front passenger seat, yelling at him and hitting him in the head while he was driving. The driver, in fear for his own life, was able to send a single text message to his mother to ask her to call for help. The mother of the victim then contacted the police. An immediate lookout for the vehicle was issued.

Troopers at the Golden Ring Barrack located the vehicle and conducted a subsequent traffic stop on northbound I-83 in the area of York Road. Upon their approach, troopers observed Castillo with signs of drug impairment. Troopers also located illegal drugs inside the vehicle. Castillo was arrested on scene without incident.

The Baltimore County Police Department provided assistance on the scene. Personnel from the Baltimore County Fire Department also assisted with the incident. The case remains under investigation.
