Suspected Vandal Strikes Same Olney Home a Third Time, Police Say

Montgomery County Police say a home in Olney was vandalized for the third time in the last month by the same male suspect.

Detectives from the 4th District Investigative Section say the male suspect, caught on surveillance video, approached the home and stole a flag hanging from the homeowners second-story balcony. He used a “long pole with an attached blade to remove the flag,” police said in a press release.

The most recent incident occurred on Saturday, Nov. 28.

MyMCMedia previously reported on the ongoing investigation. According to police, the first two incidents involved the suspect spray painting a derogatory message on the home. The investigation has now expanded to include theft.

Police are asking that anyone with information on the suspect or any of the incidents call 240-773-5545. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can do so by calling the Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-8477. You can also reach the Crime Solvers through their app or website.

A cash reward of up to $10,000 dollars is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
