Over the past month, officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Western's District, have responded to multiple reports of shed burglaries that have occurred in the Maryland City area of Laurel.

Although the suspect(s) are using various techniques to defeat the locking mechanisms, residents are asked to properly secure their sheds at all times.
