Md. thieves loading TVs, driving off
Police believe a group of men has been targeting Wal-Mart and Sams Club stores in Laurel, making off with televisions from back storage areas.
They have released pictures are from a heist on Nov. 17 at the Wal-Mart at 3549 Russett Green East, when three men made off with flat screens from the storage area. It happened at about 10 p.m. as the men loaded their truck with the stolen goods.
The next theft happened Dec. 2, police said, when one man walked into the same Wal-Mart, went to the back of the store and let a second suspect inside. They stole a television and loaded it into late 80s Chrysler van with fog lights and gray pinstriping. Both men covered their faces with a bandana or other material.
And on Monday, suspects carried out a similar theft at nearby Sam's Club at 3535 Russett Green East, police said. Four or five men walked into the store, went to the back, loaded several televisions into a white van then drove off.
Police ask anyone with information about the thefts to contact the Western District Detective Unit at 410-222-6155 or contact Metro Crime Stoppers by calling 1-866-7LOCKUP or texting CRIMES (274637).
