On Tuesday morning around 12:30 a.m., CPD responded to a call from the Hidden Ridge Court area, off of Highway 12, according to a news release. A homeowner allegedly saw individuals trying to open his car door handles on his home surveillance camera. He told police the individuals did not open the door because the outside motion light came on and they ran off.
Around the same time, another homeowner in the neighborhood stated that they had captured a similar incident on their home surveillance camera. Officers combed the area, but could not locate them.
Then, around 2:45 a.m., police officers were dispatched to a residence on Ellington Drive in reference to the homeowner also having home surveillance video of some individuals attempting to open their car doors. While in the area, officers found the suspects.
The three individuals matched the given physical descriptions in both incidents, the news release said. CPD also believes they are responsible for similar robberies that occurred recently. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has charged them in connection with those incidents too.
CPD urges all residents to lock their vehicles and to never leave valuables inside them.
Anyone who may have home surveillance video footage or additional information about these events is urged to contact Det. Wimmer, 931-648-0656, ext. 5527, the Tipsline 931-645-8477, or go online and submit a tip anonymously at P3tips.com/591.
