A home in the Westridge community in Severna Park was broken into on Monday night, according to police.
Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said officers responded to a reported burglary at a home in the Westridge community at 8:09 p.m. on Monday.
Mulcahy said that at this time it is unclear if the home was secured or if there was a forced entry.
The resident of the home, who asked to remain anonymous, told Patch in an email that the suspect or suspects gained entry through an “unlocked or not completely locked” second-story window.
“Please urge your readers to lock all windows on all floors,” the resident wrote in an email. “I’d like to prevent this from happening to anyone enjoying the cooler weather and leaving any window opened/or unlocked while they are out.”
The resident said an item that could be easily "pocketed" was taken but Mulcahy did not confirm that anything was removed from the home.
On Wednesday, Patch reported a string of car break-ins that occurred in the parking lot of Big Vanilla in Arnold. After the incident, police reminded the public to secure their vehicles.
