CARMEL, Ind. (March 16, 2016) – Carmel police are trying to identify a pair of suspects wanted in connection with multiple burglaries.
The two men, caught on surveillance video at an Indianapolis pawn shop, are accused of breaking into two condos near 106th and Michigan in early March. Police believe they forced their way through the front doors, which are right next to each other, opened the garages and pulled their car in to load stolen items, mostly electronics, inside.
A neighbor saw a white sedan in one garage, but only later realized what was happening. Lt. Joe Bickel with Carmel Police encouraged anyone who sees something out of the ordinary not to hesitate, instead to call police just in case.
“We’d always suggest people to be aware of their neighbors, what vehicles they drive, if they see something that doesn’t look normal to please contact (us),” Bickel said.
Another next-door neighbor, Shawn McFarland, said that’s exactly what he’ll do from now on.
“It’s just good to get to know your neighbors. We’ve decided that this spring we’re going to knock on doors because even in a small community like this we don’t know people like we should,” McFarland said.
McFarland also bought a security system shortly after the burglaries.
“It’s a nice … piece of technology to have,” McFarland said.
Anyone with information should contact the Carmel Police Department Investigations Division at 317-571-2511 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 (TIPS).
