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).

Maybe if they steal enough TVs they can buy a newer getaway van?

See, it's BS like this that makes me wish I could temporarily join the Klan...I hate that me and my law abiding, taxpaying peers are judged based off morons like these. Older Black folks fought, marched, died for us to have better opportunities and access and THIS is an insult to their sacrifice and their legacy.

"temporarily join the Klan" . . . ?!?!?! Really!?!?!?

I hate trash like these fools too, but join a white supremecist/racist organization (similar to the Republican Party)?

I don't think so!!

This is what happens, and will continue to happen, when 40+% of young black men and women never graduate from high school!

Now, a question, what is the Black church doing about these types of statistics and the plight of Black people brought on by Black people . . . NOTHING! Who are the leaders of the Black community pointing the finger of blame back at Black people for the "choices" each individual makes. . . I don't know of any!

But, if you ask real nice, maybe T.D. Jakes, will let you polish his Bentley!

Now these look like fine young boys. At least that's what their families will say when they run, then get caught by the police. Then a liberal judge releases them to do it again.

Hey TheChampishere, I guess it is better once the white men and women get to college and start manufactoring and selling drugs out of their dorm rooms.

Is anyone surprised to see such ugly mugs on these thieves? It sounds like an inside job, someone who works their is "facilitating" these robberies.

T.D. Jakes wouldn't dare say anything. He steals and robs like this every Sunday from his congregation. How do you think he enjoys his multimillion dollar house and Bentley, off their tithes of course.

With all the racist commentary posted, here, maybe it is possible to turn the situation AROUND.

The Washington Post should make a commitment and keep quotas on the pictures they post of WHITE CRIMINALS.

Since whites are in a MAJORITY, no picture or video or description of a black suspect should appear before, shall we say, THREE WHITES appear in the Post.

I wonder what would happen, then?
