Police Identify Accused Perry Hall Burglar Team

A Perry Hall man and Kingsville woman are accused of working together in a Perry Hall break-in on Wednesday.

Police said a Perry Hall man and a Kingsville woman are being investigated for possible involvement in multiple area burglaries. 

Police arrested James Hoffman Jr., 22, of the unit block of Bellfalls Way in Perry Hall, and Sydney Cossaboon, 20, of the unit block of Patrick Way in Kingsville, on the scene of a break-in on Wednesday afternoon, according to Cpl. Cathleen Batton, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman. 

At about 2:08 p.m. on Feb. 13, in the 8900 block of Carlisle Avenue, a neighbor called 911 to report a suspicious vehicle in front of a home. Multiple police officers then surrounded the home and talked a man into exiting the home. The man was arrested on the scene and police also arrested a woman inside the suspicious vehicle, according to Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct.

Batton identified the man and woman as Hoffman and Cossaboon, and confirmed that they are being investigated for involvement in multiple area burglaries. 

Hoffman and Cossaboon have each been charged with first-degree burglary, online court records show. 

Brooks commended the attentive neighbor who contacted police and urged community members to continue to report any suspicious behavior immediately by calling 911.

Glad they were caught - keep these two low life's off the streets of Perry Hall and surrounding area. Now I'm wondering if the car I saw outside my house the one day was their car. It sped off as I headed to the door to see the car. Hope they rot in jail!

Glad that they were caught. Only through the vigilance of a neighbor that they were caught. If a senior citizen was in that house and he was armed it could have cost the young people their life. Very few people would want to charge him. When you enter a persons house you put everyone's life at risk, Just not so simple as missing items missing.Just shows how important it is to report suspicious activities.

I went to school with Jimmy never really talked to him but based on the few times I did I can't say I would have expected to see this about him he should get the punishment he deserves and hopefully he will realize his mistakes and turn his life around
