Chief Ronald A. Ricucci from the Takoma Park Police Department announces the arrests of Anthony Petway 22, Robert Robinson 22, Daniel Fox 21, James Tinner 24, and Tavon Zackery 19, all of Washington D.C. for Conspiracy to commit 4th Degree Burglary, Theft under $1000.00, Possession of Burglary tools, and other related charges.
On October 28, 2010 at approximately 11:18 a.m. a citizen from the 7100 block of Holly Avenue called to report suspicious activity involving a vehicle. The license plate number of the suspicious vehicle was passed along to officers on patrol. Takoma Park Police officers observed the vehicle in the 7300 block of Holly Avenue where multiple burglaries have occurred recently. The subjects in the vehicle were seen looking into houses and knocking on the front doors of the residences on Holly Avenue just prior to being stopped. Officers located the vehicle and the vehicle was searched upon consent of the driver. A laptop computer that was stolen the same morning from an address in Washington D.C. was recovered and identified. The subjects had burglary tools and latex gloves in their possession. The five occupants of the vehicle were arrested and during questioning implicated themselves in the Washington D.C. burglary and on the intent to commit burglaries in the City of Takoma Park.
This was a collaborative effort among agencies, including the Takoma Park Police Department, Montgomery County Police Department and the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department. All the subjects were transported to the Central Processing Unit (CPU) without incident.
