Montgomery County police are investigating thefts from 10 unlocked vehicles last week in the Potomac area.

On the evening of May 17 and early morning of May 18, multiple people broke into vehicles that were unlocked and parked in driveways, according to a press release from the police department, that includes a video of someone entering two vehicles.

Some of the thefts were caught on residential surveillance cameras.

The thefts occurred from vehicles in these areas:

• 8900 block of Falls Farm Drive
• 8700 block of Cold Spring Road
• 100 block of Atwell Court
• 100 block of Cold Spring Court
• 10900 block of Bells Ridge Drive
• 1300 block of Stratton Drive (two vehicles)
• 8300 block of Fox Run
• 2500 block of Chilham Place
• 100 block of Orchard Way North

There were also “numerous auto thefts” in the same area and around the same time, so police are “looking (into) the possibility that those vehicle thefts were committed by the same (people.)”
