A speed camera that disappeared in Montgomery County last week was removed by the vendor by mistake, police said Monday.
A technician who services the camera and downloads information from the unit arrived at the 4000 block of East West Highway, west of Connecticut Avenue, and found the camera missing, police said. The technician called police around 8:30 a.m. Friday.
Due to a miscommunication with the camera vendor, the camera was removed by mistake instead of another camera nearby.
The camera is the size of a small refrigerator and weighs around 200 pounds.
It was positioned along the road before it disappeared, police said.
