Good Police Work!...Now What Will The Courts Do?

From Our Police Dep't:
ROBBERY: On September 11th (I think it was actually Sept 10) at 3:21 PM, a 30 year old resident of Melrob Court reported that he was robbed while he was walking home from a friend’s house. He was accosted on Ellington Drive near Janwall Street by a male suspect armed with a handgun. The victim turned over his wallet to the suspect, who then fled on a bicycle. There was no cash or other items of material value in the victim’s wallet. At 4:11 AM, a man fitting the same description climbed through the drive - through window of McDonald’s at 1941 West Street and ordered the employees to the floor at gunpoint. He then demanded money. He took some of the store’s cash from a register, climbed back out through the window, and fled on a bicycle. At 4:29 AM, an officer searching for the suspect saw him riding the bike on Hilltop Lane near Chatham Lane. The suspect abandoned the bike and fled on foot through residential back yards. Officers secured the area and Maryland State Police sent a helicopter to assist. Also, the Anne Arundel County Police sent a K-9 team to aid with the search. At 5:18 AM, the suspect was located in the back yard of a house in the 1400 block of Stone Creek Road by an Annapolis K-9 team. He was subsequently identified by the victims as being the robber. Jontae Arnell Powell, 21, of Hilltop Lane was arrested. He is currently being processed at Police Headquarters, and will be charged with armed Robbery, Assault, and other related offenses.

(CP NOTE:Now I know why the helicopter was buzzing around)

If you have information on these or any other crimes, you can call the Annapolis Police Dept at 410-268-9000. Remember, you do not have to leave your name.

Today’s Crime Prevention Tip: Keep your doors locked even while home. Experience tells us that most burglars avoid occupied houses, but some do not, and some even seek them out. Others may mistakenly think that you are not home, or simply not care.
