OXFORD – State Police are asking for the public’s help to identify suspects in a pair of burglaries in Oxford.
Police said that on Friday just after 2:30 p.m. they responded to a burglary complaint on Jacks Hill Road. They said someone entered the house and stole an undisclosed amount of money, probably between 10-11 a.m.
Surveillance cameras show the suspect to be a man wearing a light-colored shirt and dark pants with a 35mm-type camera around his neck.
State Police are also working with Oxford police investigating a burglary that occurred at the Double R Inc. Mobil Convenience Store located at 1 Oxford Road in Oxford.
On Saturday at around 1:30 a.m. Oxford Police responded to a reported burglar alarm at the convenience Store.
Police said they found damage consistent with the use of a prying-type tool, to the drive-thru window. Officers searched the area but did not find anybody.
Video surveillance footage showed the suspect was a white man, with a dark beard wearing a dark-colored baseball hat, dark-colored t-shirt, light-colored shorts, white socks, and low hiker/work boot-type shoes. The suspect also had a white piece of cloth around his neck.
Police said the suspect appeared to have walked from the Seymour town line, across Mountain Road towards the convenience store before trying to break-in through the drive-thru window.
Anyone who thinks they know the identity of the suspect is asked to call police. All calls will remain confidential.
