Someone stole the tires and wheels right off the 2005 Cadillac STS owned by Prince Georges Delegate Justin Ross. Right in his driveway. Left the car propped up on four cinder blocks, too.
Cops dusted the Caddy for prints, but the thieves apparently wore gloves. A car and an airbag were stolen nearby that same evening, according to police.
The chief of police said the upscale community has seen a rec ent increase in such crimes. “There has been a noticeable increase,” he said. “We think it might be connected to the economy. Some people are desperate for money.”
Of course Ross had a different take. “It is unacceptable that any Prince Georgian has to deal with the level of crime that we deal with. These are strong, middle-class neighborhoods that should not have to deal with this.”
Nice catch, Columbo.
