Smash & Grab Suspect in Custody

Police have a man in custody suspected of five smash and grab burglaries early Wednesday morning in Springfield Township, including one store that suffered a similar incident Monday.

Five businesses were hit, including two sports memorabilia stores, a consignment shop and two golf course pro-shops.

A Montgomery police officer working on a hunch lay in wait at a third golf course, witnessed the suspect with a golf putter through the window at the Winton Woods Pro-shop, and took him into custody.

Officers found sports memorabilia in the backseat of the suspect's car.

One of the stores hit Wednesday, Sports Investments on Montgomery Road, was also hit early Monday morning.  Crooks took a stash of baseball cards in that case.
