News from Southern District

News flash from Major Ian Dombroski, Baltimore Police Department, Southern District

Otterbein/Federal Hill experienced two recent burglaries: one on W. Montgomery and one on the 800 block of William.

Yesterday, between midnight and 7 a.m., an unknown suspect(s) entered a house on W. Montgomery through an unlocked window, pulling out the screen to gain access. The suspect(s) stole a laptop, iPad, and car keys, and used the car keys to steal the victim’s green Honda Accord, Maryland tag 4BX7294.

·         Also yesterday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., an unknown suspect(s) kicked in the front door of a house on the 800 block of William Street and stole jewelry.

These types of crimes highlight the critical importance of appropriately securing our homes (lock doors and windows, use burglar alarms and outdoor lighting) and being good neighbors by keeping an eye on our neighbors’ homes.  Call 911 at the first sight of something that makes you uncomfortable – do not hesitate!  The police would rather you call for something that turns out to be nothing, than not to receive a call for a real crime.  Truly.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!


Please be aware that Area 9 residents have lost the privilege of evening and weekend parking at Federal Hill Prep. New signage will be posted to reflect this change.  Violators will be towed.

It is sad that the actions of those who consistently disregarded the parking signs cost the neighborhood this much needed parking.

Please keep this in mind if you take advantage of the evening and weekend parking in the Digital Harbor High School lot.  Use of the lot is a courtesy extended to the neighborhood by the school administration.  We have already had reminders and gentle warnings from DHHS because there are those that abuse the privilege and do not follow the posted restrictions.

If we lose the opportunity to park in the DHHS lot we have no one to blame but ourselves.  Please be considerate.
