reports that the Methuen Police Department is actively looking for three
suspects who were involved in two home break-ins over the weekend.

received a report that around 8:20 p.m., three Hispanic men wearing black
masks broke into a home on Howe Street. There, they located a female resident

men were armed with handguns and spoke English and Spanish.
The three suspects proceeded to
destroy property and eventually fled with assorted jewelry and personal items
from the residence.
A short time later, at
approximately 9 p.m., officers responded to a home on Camden Street, where a
woman told police that three armed men, wearing black masks, had broken into
her residence and stolen money before running out the front door and leaving in
a vehicle. She described them as around 5 feet 10 inches tall, with medium
Police are investigating whether
a gold minivan seen outside the residence could be involved.

incidents are related due to the similar descriptions and actions of the
suspects. We are asking for the public's help identifying these men,"
Chief Solomon said. "If anyone has any information, or saw anything
suspicious over the weekend, we ask that they immediately contact police."
