Man tracks stolen vehicle to Cockeysville shopping center: Towson and Cockeysville area crime

A silver 2017 Jaguar sport utility vehicle was recovered after its owner tracked the stolen vehicle to Hunt Valley, according to police reports.

The Glen Arm resident used an undisclosed mobile tracking app after finding his vehicle missing from his home in a unit block of Bafford Court on March 18, police said. The man told police the SUV had been unlocked with the keys still inside.


The vehicle owner reported to police the SUV was taken at 4:30 a.m., and left in a parking lot at Hunt Valley Towne Center in Cockeysville at around 6:30 a.m., according to police.

The owner reported a hat and car charger had been stolen from the vehicle, police spokeswoman Natalie Litofsky said. There was no surveillance footage of the theft, she said.

Litofsky added that police are maintaining their patrols amid the coronavirus and continuing in-person checks on businesses, completing 2,420 checks on businesses that have closed and those that were still open between the evening of March 20 and Monday morning, March 23.
