THEFT FROM AUTOS and STOLEN VEHICLES
We would like to remind all residents to be vigilant about removing valuables from their vehicles and then locking the vehicle.

This activity is not confined to a single area, but rather is sporadic and wide spread. Please consider using outdoor lighting during the overnight hours.
With the advent of warmer weather more individuals will be out and about and we would encourage the reporting of allsuspicious activity to our non-emergencyline which is: 301 279-8000. *Please use 911 to report a crime in progress*
