Metro po­lice warn of cell­phone thefts

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — Peter Her­mann

Author­i­ties are warn­ing Metro riders about a se­ries of smart­phone rob­beries along the Or­ange, Sil­ver and Blue lines at sta­tions be­tween Eastern Mar­ket and the fi­nal des­ti­na­tions at New Car­roll­ton and Largo Town Cen­ter.

Metro Transit Po­lice said they think the same peo­ple are in­volved in many of the in­ci­dents, which typ­i­cally in­volve snatch­ing iPhone 6s from peo­ple’s hands at the sta­tions or just af­ter they’ve boarded trains. The at­tack­ers then run away as the doors to the train close.
