Police release photos of alleged Potomac burglar (Photos)
At 12:25 AM on September 4, the suspect allegedly forced his way into the convenience store at the Cabin John Shopping Center Sunoco station, and unsuccessfully attempted to jimmy open the ATM machine.
Exactly 27 hours later, on the morning of September 5, he allegedly returned to the scene of the crime, smashed his way in again, and then smashed the store's cash register on the floor. He took an undisclosed amount of cash, and fled.
Ten minutes later, the suspect forced his way into the Potomac Express Food and Deli at 12960 Travilah Road, tried and failed to jimmy open that store's ATM, and then took an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register.
In blurry security camera images, the suspect appears to be wearing a hood or t-shirt over his head, detectives said.
