Police Arrest Suspect in 'Polite' Robberies

March 26, 1997| Associated Press

BETHESDA, Md. — Police captured a suspect Tuesday in the case of the "polite robbers," two men wanted for a series of robberies at homes in a wealthy Washington suburb.

The men, said to have British or Australian accents, have robbed eight homes since January, getting in by using garage door openers left in cars or simply walking in through unlocked doors. The masked robbers demanded cash from the homeowners at gunpoint, but harmed no one.

Police said no charges had been filed yet against the suspect. They were still searching for a companion who eluded them after an early morning chase.
