Investigation of Area-Wide (DC/MD) Daytime Thefts
from Work Trucks Progresses
Village Police Need Your Help to Spot the Suspects
Recently, several contractors in the Village experienced thefts from their work trucks during daytime hours. Some of those thefts involved broken truck windows. Investigation revealed that the County Police and Metropolitan (DC) Police were seeing the same pattern. All three police agencies have been working hard to share information to identify suspects and make some arrests.
A DC police officer was able to obtain an image of the suspects (see below) from a surveillance camera in the area of one of the crimes in DC. The photo, combined with other information from DC, provides valuable information. The suspects apparently posed as construction workers with yellow reflective jackets and a hard hat as they broke into work trucks.
Please keep a lookout for anyone wearing similar construction clothing/gear and call the Village Police immediately. Officers will respond immediately and investigate.
