Peabody Police continue to investigate a burglary that occurred in a Lynnfield Street home on Tuesday afternoon.
Police released a photo of a suspect to the media on Tuesday in hopes of spreading the word.
According to police, a Ruger 9mm semi-automatic gun was taken during the break-in.
A Lynnfield Street resident called police on Tuesday afternoon after a neighbor told her there was a burglary in progress at her house.
The suspect, a white male in his 40s, who was wearing a white baseball hat with a stripe from front to back, a blue jacket with a black hood, blue jeans, white sneakers, and possibly wearing a backpack, fled the scene on foot, according to police.
Peabody Police released a “be on the lookout” alert to other departments and requested a K9 unit from Salem.
In addition to investigating the burglary, Peabody Police summonsed a resident of the Lynnfield Street home to court on two counts of improper storage of firearms.
If you are able to identify the suspect in the photo, please contact Detective Joe Gilroy 978-538-6364 or you may also go to the MyPD app or Citizen Observer, which are both accessible from the police department’s website.
