November 20, 2008

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Charles Town Police Department officials on Thursday alerted city residents to a person who has been entering homes and cars and taking cash, credit cards and identification.

In two incidents, residents have surprised the people inside their homes, but there was no physical confrontation, according to a police department press release.

There have been about eight burglaries of homes and cars in November and they might be related, police said.

The burglaries are occurring between early evening and early morning hours, police said.

A possible suspect in the burglaries is described as a black or Hispanic male about 5 feet 4 inches tall, being in his early 30s and having short hair and short facial hair, police said.

Police are asking residents to secure homes and cars in the evenings, not leave valuables in plain view and leave their porch lights on.
