Crystal Park Apartments Robbery Arrest

On Friday, 01/09/09, officers with the Frederick Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at Crystal Park Apartments. The investigation revealed a call was made to Charley’s Restaurant requesting a food order be delivered to 810 Blakely Ct. When the delivery driver arrived at the address provided, he was immediately confronted by a subject believed to be armed with a black handgun. The subject threatened the delivery driver, who then dropped the food and ran. The suspect picked up the discarded food and fled on foot in the opposite direction. The victim was not injured during the incident. A search of the area was conducted, but the suspect was not located.

Det. Jorge Garcia of the Criminal Investigation Division investigated the incident and developed a suspect, later identified as Elwayne Ondra Daniels. During his investigation, Det. Garcia was able to obtain information which led to the issuance of a search warrant for Daniels’ apartment located at 818 Blakely Ct. On Saturday, 01/17/09 at approximately 11:45 pm, members of the Department’s Special Response Team and Criminal Investigation Division executed the search warrant at 818 Blakely Ct.

As a result of evidence gathered from the search warrant and information obtained during interviews, Det. Garcia applied for criminal charges on Daniels. An arrest warrant was issued for Daniels charging him with Armed Robbery, Robbery, 1st Degree Assault, 2nd Degree Assault, Use of a Handgun in the Commission of a Crime of Violence, Reckless Endangerment, and Theft Less Than $100. Daniels was arrested this morning and was taken to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for service of the warrant. Following an appearance before the District Court Commissioner, he was being held on $7,500.00 bond.

The Criminal Investigation Division has determined that this robbery is not related to the two robberies of pizza delivery drivers on Heather Ridge Dr. that occurred on 01/07/09 and 01/09/09.

This arrest brings to a close four robberies committed in the City of Frederick since 01/08/09. During that time period, the Frederick Police Department has charged three adult males and charges against two juvenile females are still pending.

Arrested: Daniels, Elwayne Ondra

That Young man sounds like he was a victim of segregation and bad timing. First check the amount of charges and the alledged hand gun. That was not located in the search warrant apparently because it would have been noted. Correct?
Secondly, the robberies that occurred during the days around incident occurred. What is the likely-hood of someone committing a crime in succession with heavily date and type related incidents in such a close proximity?
Bad luck for that guy! lol

Wish him better days!
