PGPD Releases Photos of Suspects In Attempted ATM Thefts

The Prince George’s County Police Department is seeking the community's assistance in identifying the suspects seen in the above surveillance photographs. Detectives believe the suspects are linked to two separate attempted ATM thefts.

On August 14, 2013, at approximately 4:50 am, patrol officers were called to the Exxon Mobil gas station in the 4700 block of Allentown Road in Suitland for the report of a robbery.  Two suspects had unsuccessfully tried to steal an outdoor ATM by using a chain and a pickup truck.  A short time later, around 5:15 am, patrol officers were called to the Citgo gas station in the 5700 block of Old Branch Avenue in Camp Springs for the report of a breaking and entering in progress.  As patrol officers were arriving on scene, the suspects drove away in a pickup truck.  The suspects had driven the truck into the side of the store and tried to steal the ATM.  The pickup truck, which detectives later learned was stolen, was recovered a short distance away.

Detectives are linking these two cases based on the timing, locations and style of pickup truck used in the two attempted thefts.  Detectives also released a crime solvers flyer offering a cash reward in these cases.  Up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment.

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Southern Regional Investigation Division at (301) 749-5064.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), text “PGPD plus your crime tip” to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone or go to and submit a tip online.
