For Immediate Release: Tuesday, December 22, 2020

Major Crimes Division detectives continue to investigate a home invasion that occurred in Bethesda on December 11 and are asking anyone with information to come forward to the Police Department.  Detectives do not believe that this was a random event.

On Friday, December 11, at approximately 8:44 p.m., officers responded to a residence in the 6500 block of Elgin Lane for the report of a home invasion that just occurred. Investigation determined that three male suspects, wearing masks and armed with handguns, entered the home.  The suspects demanded money from the residents but fled without obtaining cash or property. Witnesses observed the suspects enter a vehicle, possibly a newer model BMW.

Detectives are asking anyone who has information about this incident to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5100.  Those who wish to remain anonymous may contact Crime Solvers by phone: 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), online, or via the Crime Solvers app.  Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest in this case.
