Montgomery police search for burglar

By Allison Klein

Montgomery County detectives are asking for the public's help finding a masked man they believe has broken into four commercial establishments in the Cloverly Village Shopping Center recently.

The most recent break-in was on Saturday between 4:30 and 9 a.m. at the Family Market Beer and Wine and the Buffalo Wings and Beer, both in the 15400 block of New Hampshire Avenue, according to police.

A thief forced his way into both places, police said, but only took cash from Buffalo Wings and Beer. Family Market Beer and Wine was also hit on Nov. 8, when cash was taken, according to police.

In the overnight hours between Nov. 10 and 11, police said, someone stole cash from the State Farm insurance office in the shopping center.

Police ask anyone with information about these burglaries to call the 4th District Investigative Section at 240-773-5530.

Inside job? Why wear a mask in the middle of the night while breaking and entering? Was he smart enough to know he would be filmed? Or is he familiar with each establishment in a way that maybe they would recognize him.

Masked man? Lone Ranger? Zorro perhaps? I think the cops must be laughing at this article. If he is wearing a mask, and out in this weather, I highly doubt anyone would recognize tattoos or facial features. If anyone was at an ATM they would not pay attention to anything else buit their transaction and who was in the direst vicinity.

What can you expect when you live right down the road from the Briggs Chaney Road's Castle Blvd slum.
