Officers from the Montgomery County Police 2nd District arrested two men for several thefts from vehicles that occurred in the Bethesda area last week.
On November 11, 2008, at approximately 12:40 a.m., officers from the 2nd District received a call for two suspicious suspects looking into vehicles in the area of the 11900 block of Castlegate Court. At approximately 5:00 a.m., officers observed two suspects who matched the descriptions of the men looking into vehicles, in the McDonalds located at 11564 Rockville Pike. The two suspects then left the McDonalds and walked over to the White Flint Metro.
The suspects were stopped and identified as Darrell Angelo Lyles Jr., age 22, of the 300 block of Ilchester Drive in Baltimore; and Sherrod Edward Hill, age 19, of the 1100 block of Ashland Court in Baltimore. Lyles had multiple outstanding warrants for larceny. Officers observed several GPS units and other items in their backpacks, that were linked to thefts from vehicles which occurred last week in the areas of Mist Heaven Terrace, Rockville Pike, and Elsmere Avenue.
Lyles and Hill were both charged with three counts of theft under $500, and one count of theft scheme over $500. Lyles Jr. is being held on $57,000 bond. Hill was released on his own recognizance.
Montgomery County police want to remind residents that property thefts from vehicles can be prevented if cash and personal property are not left inside vehicles.
