Calling in suspicious behavior resulted in tracking down stolen metal.
According to a report from the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, at 1:58 p.m. July 3, a witness called the sheriff’s office to report suspicious activity. The witness saw two men trying to dismantle an air conditioner in the back of a pick-up truck behind a store in Bryantown, police reported. The witness wrote down the tag number of the truck and a description before the two men left the store.
Sheriff’s officers spotted the truck, and when they stopped it, they learned that the men, both of California, had stolen the air conditioner from Anne Arundel County and sold some metal parts to a local dealer. Officers went to the scrap dealer, retrieved the parts and contacted the other police jurisdictions.
Charges are pending further investigation.
The sheriff’s office is encouraging anyone who sees something suspicious to call police immediately.
