Property Crime Hits Top City Official

Updated: Wednesday, July 16 2014, 03:21 PM EDT

The ongoing wave of property crime in Baltimore has touched one of the city’s top officials.

City solicitor George Nilson told reporters during a press conference at the Board of Estimates meeting on Wednesday that his car was stolen the night before from a parking garage.

"My day started out with my car being stolen," Nilson said.

According to Nilson the thieves gained entry to the otherwise locked garage in the exclusive Clipper Mill development and absconded with the vehicle Tuesday night. He expressed confidence the thieves would be caught.

"I'm sure building security cameras will capture auto activities and hope I'll have car back too," he wrote in an email.

There have been 1,843 reported car thefts in 2014 throughout the city according to Open Baltimore, a website providing access to city data. Out of those car thefts, 184 occurred in the Northern District, which includes Clipper Mill.
