Burgerim opens at Wheaton Plaza

Israeli burger chain Burgerim has finally opened its Wheaton Plaza location.

Burgerim is one of the few chains like White Castle and Krystal that focuses on mini-burgers, a.k.a. sliders.

"Large and brown" Fairland dog remains at large after attacking woman

Montgomery County police are alerting the public to a dangerous, "large and brown" dog that is still at large in the Fairland area of Silver Spring after attacking a woman at an apartment complex there Monday night. Police say that a second victim near Hampton Point Drive, .2 miles from those apartments in the 3400 block of Gateshead Manor Way, reports that a "tan" dog tried but failed to attack her on Saturday.

Smiling burglar steals cash from The Daily Dish in Silver Spring

The Montgomery County Council is so soft-on-crime, they're bringing a smile to the face of criminals operating in the County. A smiling burglar was caught on camera with a wide grin as he burglarized The Daily Dish on Grubb Road in Silver Spring on March 4, just after midnight. 

After kicking in a glass panel at the front of the restaurant, the jovial burglar allegedly stole money and fled from the scene. But not before being caught on the surveillance camera. We haven't seen such a methodical theft of cash since the $7 million County government embezzlement scheme.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has information about this burglary is asked to contact the 2nd District Investigative Section at 240-773-6710. To be eligible for a reward, tipsters may call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or enter a tip online. Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest and/or indictment of the suspect. Tipsters will remain anonymous.
