Alleged Burglar Falls from Roland Park Home, Dies

The burglar allegedly fell from a balcony in the 4500 block of Roland Avenue.

An alleged burglar fell from a third floor balcony in Roland Park and died from his injuries.

Sgt. Anthony Smith, a Baltimore police spokesman, said a resident returned home on Monday to the 4500 block of Roland Avenue, and saw a man pacing on the balcony. The man then tried to climb down the railing from the balcony, lost his grip and fell about 26 feet to a concrete walkway below.

The resident called 911 for help, but at 1:09 p.m. the alleged burglar, described as a 55-year-old man, was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital.

Police investigating the scene found evidence consistent with a burglary including a broken window and a ransacked house.
