City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young said Monday that his vehicle has been broken into three times in eight days -- including once when it was parked in front of City Hall.
Young, an East Baltimore resident, said thieves took a watch, a phone and other items. He said he was frustrated because security cameras in front of City Hall weren't working at the time of the theft.
"I feel like any other citizen of Baltimore," Young said. "Crime hits everyone, even the president."
There have been 5,578 thefts from automobiles this year in Baltimore, a 2 percent increase from the same time last year.
