Police look for help in McDonald's burglary

Hagerstown City Police were asking for the public's help in solving an April 14 burglary at McDonald's Restaurant at 330 E. Washington St.

When employees got to work at 3:15 a.m. they noticed boxes of food were out of place and a walk-in freezer door was ajar.

A man ran out of the freezer and broke the glass front doors to escape. Police said the man entered the restaurant by removing an exhaust fan on the roof and climbing through the hole.

The suspect is described as a white man or light-skinned black man, about 5-feet, 5 inches tall, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black bandanna over his face, police said.


Anyone with information can call Crime Solvers at 301-733-4141. If you provide information that leads to an arrest and indictment you will get a $1,000 reward.

Callers can remain anonymous, police said.
