DECEPTION BURGLARY WARNING
Since April 10, 2014 There have been a minimum of 15 deception burglaries county wide.
The precincts involved are 2,4,6,7,8,9, & 12. Precinct 12 has had 5 cases since 8-14-14.
In these cases elderly victims have been the target. The suspect poses as an official from the water Dept. and advises the victim that there is a water issue in the area and they must come inside and check their water. The victim is usually taken in the basement by the suspect and occupied as a second subject enters the home and removes property. Suspect descriptions are consistent in a White/Hispanic male with olive skin as being the point of contact with the victim. Vehicle descriptions range from a Gray SUV (Lexus or Infinity), White Ford Pick up,
White GMC Yukon with PA tag, and White Dodge Caravan. Property taken range from jewelery and cash to safes being removed from the home.
If you have someone visiting your home claiming to be from BGE, or the Water Dept. do NOT let them in your home! Neither BGE nor the Water Dept. will ask to enter your home unless they have made an appointment to do so and given prior notice. If you are approached at home by someone claiming to be from a utility and they do not have authorization, please call 911 IMMEDIATELY!
We have added a Local Business Directory to the site! Please look on the left side of the page for the link to resident who operating or own businesses and live right here in Colgate!! If you want to be included in the directory, please email us at email@example.com!
We want to thank the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation for assisting in bringing in the kids from New Horizons II! These teens went through Colgate helping to clean up the neighborhood, picking up trash and paint notices at storm drains to help prevent runoff in the Bay!
HAVE YOU SEEN A RAT?
Rats reproduce every three weeks, yielding 5-6 in each litter. So if you see a rat, there’s likely at least 6 in your area.
In 3 weeks there will be 36
In 6 weeks there will be 216
In 9 weeks there will be 1,296
In 12 weeks there will be 7, 776
Still think it shouldn’t be reported if someone isn’t properly disposing their garbage?
Without food, rats die in four months. With eradication and proactive residents, we can eliminate a lot of the rat population. They will simply go to an area where they can get food.
Rat complaints can be sent via the County website or through the Colgate Improvement Association. In both cases, you can remain anonymous.
