Suspects Sought in Bank Deposit Bag Thefts

Bank Deposit Thefts - Suspects (1) Charles County Sheriff’s detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects responsible for at least two thefts of bank deposit bags. One case occurred in early September and the other case happened on Oct. 3 and both incidents occurred near the Bank of America at 3255 Crain Highway in Waldorf.

Bank Deposit Thefts - Suspects (2) The victims seemed to be targeted based on the manner in which they carried the deposit bag – the bags were in their hand, visible and easy to grab. In each case a lone male suspect approached the victim, grabbed the bag and fled to silver Hyundai Sonata being driven by a black female with short hair. The suspect is described as a black male, possibly in his 20’s to early 30’s, between 5’8” – 5’10” with a thin build. A surveillance camera captured images of the male suspect and the car the female suspect was driving. Charles County Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward for information leading to their arrests.
