Theft from Vehicle arrest

The Frederick Police Department has been investigating an increase in thefts from motor vehicles, specifically in the W. Key Parkway area and surrounding communities. The majority of the thefts involved motor vehicle windows being shattered in order for the suspect (s) to steal GPS devices. The Directed Patrol Unit and the Patrol Division have been implementing increased patrols and surveillance operations based on a crime prediction analysis. In addition, the Patrol Division has proactively distributed “Outa- Site” brochures which encourage vehicle owners to remove valuables from their vehicles. During this investigation and with the assistance of an alert citizen, OFC. Loftis was able to develop a suspect and apply for charges through the District Court of Maryland. The suspect listed below was apprehended on 04/09/09 at approximately 5AM at his residence without incident and he remains incarcerated.

The Frederick Police Department reminds vehicle owners, regardless of their community, to remove or conceal valuables to lessen the chance of becoming the victim of a theft.

Arrested: ESTEP, Dennis Leroy
