Police searching for man believed to have broken into South End home
A state police helicopter is canvassing the South End this morning, looking for a man the police say broke into a garage and tried to steal a car at about 5:30 a.m.
Concord police Lt. Tim O’Malley said the home invasion happened on Mooreland Avenue and the suspect, when confronted by a homeowner, fled into a wooded area near Iron Works Road and Rockingham Street.
“It sounds like the homeowner found this guy in his garage in the car, and there was some kind of struggle,” O’Malley said. “The suspect took off on foot.”
The police have been searching for the man this morning, as they think he may still be in the area. They also believe he may have broken into other vehicles this morning because he left about $92 in change and bills on the seat of the car he was allegedly trying to steal, O’Malley said.
O’Malley said the man did not appear to be armed. The suspect was described as being between 20 and 30 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, “scruffy” and wearing dark clothes, O’Malley said.
He asked that anyone who lives around Mooreland Avenue and believes they were robbed this morning to call the police.
