The Carroll County Sheriff's Office is asking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect accused of stealing jewelry and collectible U.S. currency from the Westminster Antique Mall Oct. 12.
Police said in a news release Monday that they are searching for a suspect who wore a "V for Vendetta" mask, a black and gray knit hat, green sweatshirt and gray, loose-fitting pants.
The suspect appears to have a stocky build, but no further description is available at this time, police said.
Sheriff's Deputies responded to an alarm at the Westminster Antique Mall, located on Hahn Road in Westminster, at 1:24 a.m. on Oct. 12 and found a broken window, which had been used to gain access to the business, according to the release.
Police said the suspect had destroyed several glass display cases with a hammer and stole jewelry and collectible U.S. currency.
The suspect fled before Sheriff's Deputies arrived on scene, according to police.
The Sheriff's Office investigation continues.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Youman of the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division at 410-386-2571, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the Anonymous Tips Hotline at 1-888-399-8477.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
