Nighttime Burglary of an unoccupied house on West Lenox Street
At 12:35 pm this afternoon, the residents arrived home to discover someone had burglarized their home. Village Officer Joseph Chung responded to the house. Montgomery County Police also responded to help search the area for any evidence related to the crime.
Officers were able to view video footage that showed two suspects were involved. The suspects first appear on the video around 9:40 pm on Saturday 05/20/23. The suspects used a work plank/walking board from a nearby house that was being renovated. They used the plank to climb onto the second-floor roof. The suspects then made entry by breaking the window glass on the second floor. The suspects left the same way they came in and removed the plank from the side of the house.
The residents are currently determining what was stolen. Officers were able to collect evidence that has been submitted for processing. The house alarm system was activated, but the suspects did not trigger the alarm system.
If anyone has any information or seen anything suspicious on West Lenox Street on Saturday 05/20/23 between 9 pm and 11 pm, please call the Village Police at 301-654-7300.
