Five Maryland locations to serve you. Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, DUI Defense.
On June 24 at approximately 3:23 p.m., officers responded to the St. Charles Towne Center parking lot after receiving a report of a group of four juveniles breaking into several cars. Officers arrived in the parking lot, and the suspects immediately fled on foot but were quickly apprehended. Further investigation found three vehicles had been broken into and damaged, and several tools used to enter the cars were recovered from the suspects. The four juveniles, including three 15-year-olds from Accokeek and a 14-year-old from Fort Washington, were arrested on-scene, and were charged via a Juvenile Offense Report with breaking and entering a motor vehicle, destruction of property, and other related crimes. All were later released to a parent.

“This is an outstanding example of a community member seeing something occurring and calling police immediately. That information allowed the officers to quickly apprehend these juveniles and prevent the theft of the owner’s cars and property” said Sheriff Troy Berry. The investigation is continuing, and anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Moats at 301-609-3282 ext. 0792.
