ABERDEEN, Md. — Two apartment communities in Aberdeen are victims of recent rent payments thefts.

Aberdeen Police said the Affinity Old Post Apartments and Highland Commons Apartments reported that between July 3, 2019 and July 5, 2019 numerous rent checks were stolen from their locked drop boxes.

According to officials, the two suspects involved were caught on surveillance footage. The first suspect is described as a black male, heavy build, with facial hair. He was wearing black sweatpants with “ECKO UNLTD” in white lettering down the leg, a gray hooded sweatshirt, and a tan baseball hat. The second suspect is described as a white male, medium build, with a light-colored goatee. He was wearing a bright blue jacket with a white stripe across the front, a blue baseball hat, and blue jeans.

They left the scenes together in in a small SUV that police believe is a Mazda CX-5.
