In recent weeks there has been an increase in stolen vehicles and thefts from automobiles in Colmar Manor and other communities. Three vehicles have been reported stolen in Colmar Manor since January 1. Additionally, numerous residents report that their vehicles have been entered and ransacked. Most of these incidents occurred after midnight. We have increased our police patrols at night. We encourage everyone to lock their vehicle doors and not leave valuables of any kind in a vehicle. These crimes happen fast. One vehicle was stolen in less than a minute.
Hyundais and Kias are most susceptible to theft. We have a limited supply of free steering wheel locks for Hyundais and Kias registered to a Colmar Manor address. Please contact the Colmar Manor Police Department at 301-779-5491 or email Chief@ColmarManor.org for more information.
If you witness a crime or suspicious activity, please report it immediately by calling 911.
A good place to begin safeguarding our community is by participating in the Neighborhood Watch. Neighborhood Watch meets on the fourth Thursday of each month.
