BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Andover Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a burglary suspect caught on surveillance video over the weekend.
Around 10:30 on Saturday night, the department responded after the owners of an Andover Country Club Lane home reported that, though they were away from home, they were able to see two men breaking into the house using surveillance technology. Andover Police said the burglars dismantled the home's alarm system, and caused significant damage while breaking in.
Police said the men were wearing gray hooded sweatshirts and took off into the woods when officers arrived. A search was conducted with the help of K-9 units, the Essex Sheriff's Department, and the State Police Air Wing--but the suspects weren't found. Police did, however, share an image taken from surveillance cameras in the home.
"If anyone recognizes the suspect, or saw anything suspicious on Andover Country Club Lane late last night, we ask that you immediately contact Andover Police," Andover Police Chief Patrick Keefe said in a press release.
If anyone has information about the break-in, they're asked to call Andover Police at 978-475-0411, or leave an anonymous tip at 978-470-3864.
