Andover Police Searching for Burglary Suspects
ANDOVER — Chief Patrick Keefe and the Andover Police Department are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who is believed to be connected to a residential burglary that occurred last night.
On Saturday, Oct. 13, at approximately 10:30 p.m., Andover Police responded to a report of a burglary in progress at a residence on Andover Country Club Lane.
The owners of the home were away, but through video surveillance were able to see two men breaking into their house.
Both suspects were wearing what appeared to be gray hooded sweatshirts, and they caused significant damage to the home when breaking in, including dismantling the alarm system.
Upon arrival of police, both suspects fled on foot into a wooded area behind the home. K-9 units from the Andover Police Department and Essex County Sheriff’s Department responded to search the area, along with the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing and Massachusetts State Police units. Police were unable to locate the suspects.
Andover Police were able to obtain an image of one of the suspects from the home’s surveillance video and are asking for the public’s help identifying the man.
“If anyone recognizes the suspect, or saw anything suspicious on Andover Country Club Lane late last night, we ask that you immediately contact Andover Police,” Chief Keefe said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Andover Police at 978-475-0411. Anonymous tips can be made by calling 978-470-3864.
