Break-ins Cause for Concern in Denton

Posted:

DENTON, Md.- Wanda Hill used to live in Denton and is planning on moving back next month, but the sudden rise in crime has her questioning that decision.

"My concerns are that we have had several breaking and entering of homes and motor vehicles and they are within a three block radius," she said.

Hill said police reports show that over the last 14 days, there have been four vehicle thefts and six break-ins, and one of those homes belonged to Hill's son.

"I have talked to several people they are concerned about this and have the same questions," Hill said.

Crime has been an all too common occurrence in Denton over the last few weeks and some people like Hill want more of a police presence in town.

"I don't see any patrols," she said. "I am up there all hours of the night, late at night sometimes I am up there early in the morning and very seldom do I see in these areas patrolling and I feel that they should be out at least making their presence known."

Joanne Clanton of Denton said police used to roll through the neighborhoods like clock work, but not anymore.

"They used to patrol the streets, they used to ride bikes, they used to walk up and down the streets. They used to do that," Clanton recalled.
