This investigation revealed just after 10:30 p.m. on June 1, 2019, someone contacted Uber on behalf of the victim in order to take the 25-year-old female home. When the victim did not make it home, family members started to worry and used a phone app to determine the victim’s location. Her location was shown to be the area of Jenifer Road and W. Timonium Road. The victim’s father went to the area where he saw a parked car. He walked up to the car and eventually saw his daughter and the suspect in the back seat of the vehicle. The suspect opened the car door and the victim’s father saw the victim lying on the backseat and was visibly upset. After arguing with the victim’s father, the suspect got into the driver’s seat and drove off. As the suspect was leaving, he threw the victim’s purse out of the car, striking the victim’s father in the face.

Baltimore County detectives conducted an investigation and were able to identify the Uber driver as Joshua Robinson. The suspect was arrested on June 6, 2019 and is currently being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bond status.

Baltimore County Police have charged and are releasing the names of the three men involved in several burglaries throughout Baltimore County.

Police noticed a trend of residential burglaries beginning in October 2017. Officers realized that the suspects were targeting larger homes in the Franklin, Pikesville, Towson and Cockeysville Precinct areas. In the majority of cases, between 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the suspects would force their way into the house, ransack the residence, and steal valuables. Evidence showed that the incidents ranged from one to three suspects committing these burglaries.

Around 6:30 p.m. on January 26, 2018, Police received a call for a burglary in the 14100-block of Blenheim Road, 21131. Officers from the Cockeysville Precinct observed a possible suspect, a green Ford Explorer with North Carolina registration plates. Numerous assisting units, including aviation, assisted in following the vehicle. The sole occupant inside the car stopped and attempted to run from the officers. Police were able to chase down and detain the suspect. Officers found evidence indicating the man was involved in the series of burglaries. He has been identified as Demar Anthony Brown, 33, of the 700-block of Hudson Street, Winston Salem, North Carolina 27105. Brown has been charged with 20 counts of first degree burglary and is being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bail status.

During the response to the Blenheim Road burglary, officers found another burglary that had occurred at the unit-block of Blenmont Court, 21131. After an extensive search, two suspects were located in a nearby wooded area and taken into custody. Those suspects have been identified as Kamar Oliver Beckles, 32, of the 1800-block of Palisade Avenue, Teaneck, New Jersey 07666 and Jashon Clarence Fields, 33, of the 1000-block of Lake Regency Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30349. Both have been charged with 20 counts of first degree burglary and being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bail status.

Police were also notified that a house located in the 13000-block of Jerome Jay Drive, 21030, prior to the Blenheim Road burglary. These suspects were connected to all three January 26th burglaries. Detectives continued their investigation and recovered evidence connecting Brown, Beckles, and Fields to a total of 20 burglaries.

“Our patrol, investigative, and support units did incredible work in identifying and apprehending these individuals responsible for the burglaries,” according to Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence B. Sheridan. “We aim to preserve public safety in Baltimore County and to assist those who have been victimized,” said Chief Sheridan. 

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz stated, “We hire well. We train well, we lead well. When you do that, these are the results you get. OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT IS OUTSTANDING.”
