LOOKOUT FOR BREAKING AND ENTERING SUSPECT
Despite traditional police executive thinking to the otherwise, I have always found it extremely helpful to consult and partner with residents when attempting to solve community problems and crime issues. I find myself in such a position now, specifically as we face a continuing problem with residential breaking and enterings (B&Es) in the Town. Since the middle of December 2009, we have had fifteen (15) B&Es or attempts in the single-family homes. Based upon an extensive review of reports, witnesses, and the collected evidence, we have established the following general pattern:

  • The suspect(s) first attempts to determine if the home is occupied by knocking several times on the front door.
  • Upon receiving no answer, the suspect(s) walks to the side or rear of the house and gain entry through a deck-level window or door panel. More often than not, the window was unlocked and no force was necessary other than to remove a screen.
Once inside, the suspect(s) quickly rifle through the living room/master bedroom areas, removing laptops, cameras, and cash principally.
The suspect(s) then flees through a door or other easy means of exit. One report mentions the suspect(s) fleeing in an unknown vehicle.

To date, we have two potential suspects:

#1  B/M 40-45 years of age, riding  a woman’s style mountain-type bicycle, white in         
      color, wearing a black jacket and a gray knit cap
#2  B/M 20-25 years of age, 5-08 140-150 lbs, wearing a dark winter cap, a blue jacket,               
      and blue jeans.  

The Cheverly Police Department has expended a great deal of manhours and resources on these investigations and will continue to make the closure of these crimes our #1 priority. We need your help, however, in order to be successful. Please immediately report any suspicious persons or vehicles you observe around your neighborhood and call 9-1-1 if you see any strangers in your or your neighbor’s yards and/or neighborhood alleys. If you have any information that does not require an immediate response, please notify stand-by CPD investigators at (301) 789-5090 or (301) 789-8551. Thank for your cooperation and support.

Buddy Robshaw, COP
