Police Nab Suspect in Numerous Burglaries in Sylvan Shores Community in Riva
Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said that police detectives from the Southern District have solved a residential burglary spree in the Sylvan Shores community in Riva that has been occurring over the past nine days, where five homes have been burglarized.
The suspect stole various items including a 22-gauge rifle, a handgun, jewelry, electronics and cash. Police believe the suspect to be a teen, 17, who walked away from a group home in Southern Maryland just before the first burglary was reported on Dec. 30, according to the report.
Detectives said that community members had seen the teen in the area. Evidence from the scene of one of the burglaries was then linked to the teen. On Jan. 7, Southern District detectives with help from the Baltimore Police Department and the Anne Arundel Police Northern District Tactical Patrol Unit found the suspect in a home in Baltimore City. He was taken into custody without incident, Mulcahy said.
Police said in the report that additional evidence was located in the home in Baltimore. He is a juvenile so his name has not been released to the media. There is no booking photo. He has been charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of theft with additional charges likely to come.
Mulcahy said that the investigation is ongoing and detectives are looking for stolen guns and the other property that remains missing. Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call Detective Michael Krok at 410-222-1960.
