For Immediate Release: Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – 2nd and 4th District Investigative Sections continue to investigate two residential burglaries that occurred on June 19 and that investigators believe were committed by the same suspects.  Today, detectives are releasing home  target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">surveillance video of one of the female suspects and are asking for the public’s help in identifying her.

The investigation by detectives has determined the following:

On June 19 at approximately 10:00 p.m., 2nd District officers responded to a residence in the 11900 block of Hunters Lane in North Bethesda for the report of an attempted residential burglary. The adult female homeowner stated to officers that when she arrived home at approximately 8:00 p.m., she was told by a neighbor that two African American males and two African American female suspects had been acting suspiciously around the house.  The homeowner reviewed her home surveillance video and observed that one of the female suspects knocked on her door at approximately 6:52 p.m.  At approximately 6:58 p.m., the homeowner further observed on the video that the two male suspects entered her back yard and that one of the suspects walked onto her deck.  The suspect who was seen walking on the deck was wearing gloves.  At approximately 7:00 p.m., the neighbor observed all of the suspects leaving the area in a champagne colored 2005 Nissan Murano.  Detectives determined that the suspects did not gain entry into the home.

On June 19 at approximately 8:20 p.m., 4th District officers responded to a residence in the 13200 block of Redspire Court in the Layhill area for the report of a residential burglary that had just occurred.  The adult male homeowner reported to police that he heard knocking on his front door and shortly after the knocking, heard footsteps inside of his home.  The homeowner stated he checked the home and observed four African American male suspects in the kitchen of the house.   All of the suspects fled from the home when they determined that the home was occupied.  The homeowner observed the suspects enter two vehicles, a black colored SUV and an off-white colored SUV, that were parked on the street.  The suspects then fled from the area in the SUVs.  Investigators determined that no property had been stolen from the home and that the suspects forcibly entered the home through a rear sliding glass door.

Detectives have further determined that female suspect seen on the home surveillance video from the earlier attempted burglary on Hunters Lane was seen driving one of the SUVs that fled from the Redspire Court burglary.

Anyone who recognizes this female suspect or has information about these burglaries is asked to call the 2nd District Investigative Section at 240-773-6710 or the 4th District Investigative Section at 240-773-5530.  Tipsters can also call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
