On 06/03/09 at approximately 3:20 p.m., Troopers were dispatched to the area of Abingdon Road at MD 924 in Abingdon for a report of a robbery.
Upon arrival, contact was made with the elderly victim who reported that he had been walking along Abingdon Road near MD 924 when he was approached from behind by an unknown person. The suspect reached into the victim’s back pocket and removed his wallet which contained an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect then fled through the adjacent shopping center towards MD 924. The victim attempted to give chase but fell and was unable to keep up.
The suspect was described as a black male in his late teens to early twenties, bushy hair, and wearing a white tank top.
The case is being investigated by the Maryland State Police-Bel Air Barrack Criminal Investigation Section. Anyone with information is urged to contact Trooper First Class Sean Nevin at 410-838-4101 extension 319.
Apparently Sheriff Jesse Bane’s efforts of relocating crime are working. Sheriff Bane is moving the crime out of Edgewood and into the rest of the County.
And the criminals are getting more brazen too. I thought most of the stuff in Edgewood happens at night. This was broad daylight. It’s coming closer and closer to Bel Air so it will be interesting to hear the public outcry then. Everyone knows there’s no crime in Bel Air. Other than the rape at the Greene Turtle and the armed robbery at Bob Evans. It must be those Edgewood people. What’s your plan now Sheriff Bane?

The old Guy was a target of opportunity. the ” Punk” got away with it. and most certainly will do it again. Bel Air has alway’s been thought of as a safe Haven. & now that’s changeing.
Criminals can travel.
I kind of thought Harford County was safe, but the crime level around here is getting ridiculous. I’m ready to get out and move back to Baltimore County.
