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.
