Commercial Burglary

August 15, 2022

On August 15, 2022, at approximately 5:59 am, Takoma Park police responded to the 6400 block of New Hampshire Avenue (Marathon gas station) for the report of a commercial burglary that occurred earlier.  Officers met with the owner of the business who indicated his alarm company had notified him of a possible break-in.  Video surveillance inside the business showed one male breaking into and entering the establishment and attempting to steal property, it appears, without success.
