Sur­veil­lance photo

Po­lice have nice clear re­cord­ings of two guys they be­lieve broke in­to a car parked on an Ox­ford Circle street, and de­tect­ives are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing the men.

Ac­cord­ing to the North­east De­tect­ive Di­vi­sion, po­lice re­spond­ing to a re­port of a theft on the 1300 block of Van Kirk Street at 9:48 a.m. on June 16 were met by people who told them their be­long­ings had been re­moved from their car. 

Po­lice look­ing at neigh­bor­hood sur­veil­lance re­cord­ings see two men walk­ing on the block and then re­turn­ing in­to the cam­era’s frame car­ry­ing a bag. They enter a drive­way and be­gin dis­card­ing things from the bag.

Both men are black and about 20 years old. The first was 5 feet 6 inches tall or an inch taller. He had fa­cial hair and weighed about 175 to 180 pounds. He was wear­ing a black hooded sweat­shirt, black pants and gray shoes. The oth­er man was a few inches taller and about 10 pounds heav­ier. He was wear­ing a black jack­et, green pants and brown shoes.  

Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice You­Tube Chan­nel or vis­it philly­po­ to see the video. Any­one who re­cog­nizes these men should call 215-686 TIPS (8477) or call North­east De­tect­ives at 215-686-3153. ••
