Cars broken into, items stolen in Bulle Rock area

The Bulle Rock area in Havre de Grace was hit with a rash of vehicle break-ins, believed to have been perpetrated overnight Aug. 22, city police reported.

Nothing was stolen from most of the vehicles.

It's the second time in two months the Bulle Rock community has been hit with incidents of this variety.

Two vehicles were reported ransacked Friday at 4:20 a.m. in the 200 block of Whirlaway Lane, according to the call for service. Nothing was taken from those cars.

The next thefts were reported in the 300 block of Master Derby Drive and the 200 block of Touch of Gold Drive.

About six CDs stolen from a car in the 200 block of Caveat Court, as reported at 5:32 p.m. that day.

An Apple iTouch, navigation DVD and purse were also stolen from a car in the 500 block of Ferdinand Drive.

A vehicle in the 300 block of Willow Way was also broken into, and another car in the 500 block of Ferdinand Drive reported a break-in Saturday at 12:51 p.m.

No items were taken from either of those.

"The multiple incidents of thefts from cars in the Bulle Rock area all appear to be related," Ofc. Jeff Gilpin said. "We have not identified any possible suspects. All of the vehicles were left unlocked and some had items of value left in plain view. These incidents are still under investigation, but we have very little leads pointing us toward a suspect."

In late June, about 14 cars were ransacked or items were stolen from them, most of them in the same neighborhood. Among the streets where things were stolen, also from unlocked cars, were Temperance Hill Way, Native Dancer Circle, Summer Squall Court, Smarty Jones Terrace, Majestic Prince Circle and Secretariat Drive.

One arrest was made in connection with those thefts.

Gilpin said detectives are considering that the two incidents might be related, but are looking at all circumstances.

"Havre de Grace Police Department encourages people to lock their car doors and make sure items of value are removed from their vehicles regardless of where people live," he said.
