Appliance thieves hit apartments under construction
Maybe we should file this one under "Pickpockets Who Raised Their Game."
Police in Charles County are looking for a group of suspects who broke into several under-construction apartments in White Plains and stole washers, dryers and ranges sometime over the weekend.
Suffice it to say police are looking for more than one suspect.
Construction workers discovered the “theft of appliances” at 7 a.m. Monday when they returned to the 11000 block of Monaghan Place and found three apartments had been raided, said Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.
The thieves also left behind a mess: during the burglary, Richardson said, the suspects cut several water lines, causing two of the apartments to flood.
Investigators believe the thefts occurred sometime between Saturday and Monday, when no one was monitoring the apartments, Richardson said.
