**EDIT: These PC's were NOT taken from Berkshire Medical Center, but from Berkshire Healthcare Systems long term care office headquarters on North Street. Furthermore: these were brand new PC’s, had never been used, and not connected to any BHS networks, so there is no risk that any patient information was lost. Please do not call BMC looking for information**
The Pittsfield Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance with a somewhat unusual investigation. Over one month ago, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, two individuals entered a property owned and operated by Berkshire Healthcare Systems and stole a number of computers. The two men appeared to be comfortable in their setting and spent a considerable amount of time inside of the property. They appeared to be knowledgeable about computers and were looking for specific items to take. Both suspects appeared to be thin or athletic white males, and they had a dog on a leash accompanying them during the burglary. (PHOTOS BELOW)
Suspect #1 appeared to have dark hair with a short beard and he wore eyeglasses. He was wearing a baseball cap, dark Nike sweatshirt, dark pants and sneakers. He had a dark backpack, possibly Northface brand:
Suspect #2 appeared to have lighter hair and was clean shaven. Early in the burglary he wore a bandana or something similar on his head and a dark Northface jacket. He later took off the head covering and jacket and wore a white T-shirt:
The dog appeared to be a smaller terrier with mostly black fur, thin (probably 40 pounds or less) with a tail that curved upward.
