For Immediate Release: Thursday, October 31, 2019

Detectives from the Central Auto Theft Section are investigating an auto theft that occurred earlier today in Silver Spring.

On Thursday, October 31, 2019, at approximately 7:18 a.m., 3rd District officers responded to the area of the 300 block of Wayne Avenue for the report of a vehicle collision. When officers arrived, they found a 1999 Subaru Impreza SW and a 2016 Honda Pilot involved in a collision. Officers located a juvenile male suffering from traumatic injuries in the Subaru, who was transported to a local hospital in serious condition. The Subaru was subsequently reported stolen.
