Cambridge Police Investigating Overnight Breaks, Stolen Cars, and Stolen Police Equipment

The Cambridge Police Department is investigating an overnight commercial break, stolen cars, and stolen police equipment.


At approximately 5:20 a.m. on Sunday, October 16, officers were dispatched to a commercial establishment in the area of 2500 Massachusetts Avenue for a report of an alarm. During the initial investigation, the officers learned the commercial establishment -- a gas and service station -- had been broken into. Shortly after, the officers located an abandoned gray 2007 Mercedes SUV nearby that was stolen from the business. During the investigation, the officers learned an off-duty Cambridge Police officer’s locked personal car, parked in the North Cambridge area, had also been broken into. A Cambridge Police identification card, a ballistic vest, and two loaded firearm magazines (which hold ammunition for a firearm) were among the items stolen from the officer’s car. No firearms were stolen. Officers also learned a black Ford Taurus was stolen from the commercial establishment, which has not been located at the time of this announcement.


We are seeking the community’s assistance to identify the two individuals in the attached images that appear to be a White female with blonde hair and a Black male.
