Baltimore County police are asking the parents of Towson High School students to remind their children that Radebaugh Florist and Greenhouses, on Aigburth Avenue, is private property not to be trespassed on, after a structure on the Radebaugh property was vandalized and burglarized.
Two officers responded to the Radebaugh property at noon Monday to find spray paint on the indoor walls of a workshop that is adjacent to the property’s now-unused greenhouses, according to an incident report provided by police. The crime occurred between 5 p.m. Dec. 16 and 11 a.m. Dec. 19, according to the report.
The officers also found burnt grass, and that some siding of the workshop was melted. The incident report also states that a drill and power saw were stolen from the location.
On Dec. 19, the Baltimore County Council approved a contract between the county and the C.M. and J.L. Radebaugh Company, LLC, the owners of the Radebaugh property, to purchase 2.36 acres at the site, including the greenhouses, for $1.1 million. The county plans to turn the parcel into a park, though it is not yet public property, police said.
