One really fit thief - or a group of thieves - hit multiple neighborhoods west of Old Georgetown Road hard Friday in Bethesda.
All stolen items were taken from cars parked in neighborhoods between Suburban Hospital and the Beltway.
One additional theft was reported just north of Georgetown Square, and two others occurred in the east Bethesda neighborhood around Rosedale Avenue. Another took place on Arlington Road. An isolated theft was reported in the Green Acres neighborhood, off River Road, as well. A grand total of 13 thefts were reported from Friday alone.
Obviously, it is yet another reminder to keep car doors locked, and remove any visible items from the cabin of the vehicle, including loose change. If you notice any suspicious persons or vehicles wandering around, report that - and tag numbers - to Montgomery County Police.
