REISTERSTOWN, Md. — A couple attempted to burglarize a Reisterstown home only to leave empty-handed after being confronted by the homeowner through a surveillance system, and now Baltimore County Police are hoping the public can help identify and find the thwarted burglars.

Police said the couple attempted to enter a home in the 2400 block of Long Ridge Road, with the man in the couple walking up to the front door, with a small dog in toe. The man was spotted on the house’s doorbell surveillance system as he headed towards the front door, alerting the homeowner of his presence. The woman entered the house through an unlocked door on the other side of the structure.

The couple left the location without anything but their dog after the homeowner confronted them remotely through the surveillance system, police said. The burglars are thought to live in the area since it appeared they had been out walking their dog when they attempted the break in.

If anyone recognizes the suspects, they should call the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit at 410-307-2020 or call Metro Crime Stoppers, who are offering a reward, at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
