Car break-in suspect caught on video

Montgomery County detectives are probing a series of car break-ins in Silver Spring this month, including one in which the suspect appears to have been recorded on video.

On July 7, police went to the Stonegate community after a report of at least seven thefts from vehicles the previous night. The thefts occurred on Silverstone Court, Silverstone Drive, Carona Drive, Watergate Road, and Amberleigh Drive, police said.

The suspect or suspects entered three unlocked vehicles and busted the windows to get inside four others. Pilfered items included GPS units, a gym bag, an iPod, a knife and a flashlight, according to police.

An outdoor video camera appears to have captured images of one the suspects going into a vehicle in a driveway. Two more men are seen walking in the street.

Detectives hope someone will recognize the suspect in the vehicle. He appears to be a white male, 16-21 years old, with black hair, and a medium build, police said. He has a red tattoo on his upper right arm. He was wearing tan shorts and a light gray tee shirt at the time of these thefts, police said.

The other two males also appear to 16 to 21-years-old. One is wearing dark long pants and a light-colored tee shirt. The other is wearing light-colored slacks and a dark-colored tee shirt, police said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 240-773-5530.

This idiot was sure taking his sweet old time going through that car. What was he reading anyway? The Cars Manual? Doesn't look like he made away with anything.

This freaking bum. This worthless human scum. I hope he is easily ID'able by his ugly tattoo on his right arm. Loser! Get a freaking job. I hope he gets run over by a truck.
