Frederick Police in addition to local police agencies are requesting assitance fron the public and business community in identifying a subject responsible for a number of burglaries in the Frederick and Washington County areas.

On 01/14/2013, at approximately 0059 hours, Frederick Police responded to a commercial burglary alarm at Rexel-Electric Supply located at 1569 Tilco Dr. in Frederick, MD. A male suspect (unknown race, 5’10”-6’00”) wearing all dark clothing and a hood covering his head, made entry into the business and attempted to steal a spool of Romex copper wiring. Surveillance footage revealed that the suspect parked a dark colored, older model sedan in the far corner of the parking lot and then entered the business. The suspect is later observed carrying what appears to be a cardboard box; however, he drops the item prior to exiting business. He then leaves the area in the same vehicle travelling in an unknown direction.

Hagerstown Police Department were dispatched to Rexel-Electric Supply, 1100C Business Center Dr, Hagerstown, MD, for a commercial burglary alarm at approximately 0343 hours. HPD officers were able to view surveillance footage at this location showing an unknown, male subject, matching the description of the subject in the FPD’s incident, break the front window with an object and enter the business. The subject goes straight to the copper wiring section and takes three (3) rolls of 300 ft copper wire. He puts the wire in the trunk of what appears to be a 1993-1999 Toyota Celica (photo below) and leaves the area.

Washington County Sheriff’s office is also investigating a similar incident; however, it has not been determined to be directly related to the above mentioned incidents. Both subject and vehicle descriptions appear to be the same. T

Anyone with additional information or similar cases, please contact Detective Golden at 301.600.6218 or If you would like to remain anonymous please call the Frederick Police Tip line at 301-600-8477(TIPS) with any information to assist us in this investigation.
