Police Investigate Multiple Cases of Vehicle Vandalism in Olney

For Immediate Release: Monday, August 11, 2014

The Montgomery County Police Department is investigating multiple cases of vehicle vandalism that occurred in the Olney area over the weekend.  Officers have identified 21 victims; some victims had more than one vehicle vandalized.

Preliminary investigation by officers has revealed that during the hours of approximately 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 9 and 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 10, an unknown suspect(s) vandalized vehicles in the Olney area.  The affected neighborhoods are in the areas of:

  • Georgia Avenue and King William Drive
  • Cashell Road and Bowie Mill Road
  • Old Baltimore Road and Gold Mine Road
  • Route 108 (Olney Sandy Spring Road) between Brooke Road and Sherwood High School (300 Olney Sandy Spring Road)
The suspect(s) used rocks to break vehicle windows and also slashed vehicle tires.

A burglary occurred at a residence in the 3800 block of Terrawood Court on Sunday, August 10 at approximately 2:22 a.m.  During this burglary, the suspect(s) stole property from an unlocked vehicle parked in the driveway and used a remote found in the vehicle to open the garage door.  The suspect(s) then stole property from the garage.  The residents were home at the time of the burglary and realized that someone was in their garage.  Although it is unknown if this burglary is related to the vandalisms in the area, detectives are looking into the possibility that the crimes were committed by the same person/people.

Anyone who lives in these neighborhoods and has not reported vandalism that has occurred to his/her vehicle(s) is asked to make a report by calling the Montgomery County Police non-emergency number at 301-279-8000.

Anyone with information about the suspects involved in these incidents is asked to call the 4th District Petty Crimes Unit at 240-773-5475.  Callers may remain anonymous.
