Eastern District

Burglary Arrest - Pasadena

 

On January 21, 2015, at approximately 5:04 p.m., Eastern District Corporal Apuzzio responded to the unit block of Milburn Circle for a report of an air conditioning unit that was stolen from a shed. 

 

Corporal Apuzzio spoke with a neighbor, who indicated he observed a suspect pull up to the residence and remove an air conditioning unit from the property. The alert neighbor, who was watching the residence for the homeowner, immediately took pictures of the suspect and his vehicle, a PT Cruiser. This same neighbor had also taken pictures of the same suspect back in November. Corporal Apuzzio noticed a set of footprints leading from the property to the location the neighbor reported the suspect vehicle was parked. Using both sets of pictures and the vehicle and partial tag information provided, Corporal Apuzzio was able to track down the suspect at a residence in the 8400 block of Miramar Road in Pasadena. It was quickly determined the suspect was a frequent scrapper and did not have permission to be on the victim’s property. Evidence from the victim’s property was located and the suspect admitted to being on the property. Detectives from the metals unit responded and interviewed the suspect. The suspect was charged with second and fourth degree burglary, trespassing and theft under $100.

The warrant was executed in the early morning hours of Friday, January 16, 2015.  Detectives discovered, in the wooded area, five Pit Bulls, most of which were malnourished. They also discovered one deceased Pit Bull on the premises.  The dogs were found tethered and chained to posts in the area.  The animals had no food or water and the deceased dog was found to be frozen to the ground.

The dogs are currently not available for adoption due to their circumstances and health.  If/When Animal Control determines they are candidates for placement they will work with rescue partners on their placement barring any unforeseen complications. 

 

The dogs were provided shelters however they were not provided with adequate food, water or bedding to sustain their health.  As a reminder Article 12, Title 4, Subtitle 8-801 Dog Outdoors States:  For each dog confined or tied outdoors, an owner shall provide:  a shelter to protect the dog from the elements, bedding and if tethered it must be at least 10 feet in length.  Article 12, Title 4, Subtitle 8-802 requires that food and water be required daily in sufficient quantity to maintain a normal body condition for the animal.

This past week, investigators with the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Child Abuse Unit began an undercover investigation by communicating online with individuals who were soliciting young females on the internet for sex.

On January 14, 2015, one suspect attempted to meet the “14-year-old” at an undisclosed location in Anne Arundel County. Once he arrived at that predetermined location, he was taken into custody and identified as Johnathan Michael Kirtz. Kirtz was arrested and charged with Sexual Solicitation of a Minor.

 

Detectives from the Child Abuse Unit participate with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. They have received specialized training to conduct these types of investigations.

On Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at approximately 7:39 a.m., the Anne Arundel County Police responded to the 7800 block of Coutros Court, Glen Burnie, Maryland for an unknown disturbance.  Upon arrival officers located a deceased male in the address suffering from apparent upper body trauma.  The deceased was positively identified as Breon “Breezy” Emerson Cager, 27 of Pasadena, MD.

 

The Anne Arundel County Homicide Unit assumed command of the investigation and sifted through evidence as they searched the address where the victim was found.  Several witnesses were located and brought to the Criminal Investigation Division where interviews were obtained.

 

On Wednesday, January 14, 2015, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner located in Baltimore Maryland will perform an autopsy and determine the exact cause and manner of death.  As this is a very fluid and active investigation the Anne Arundel County Police are urging anyone with information to come forward by calling Homicide Detective Vincent Carbonaro 410-222-3453.

 

If people with information wish to remain anonymous they can also contact the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line 410-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers.

 

The Anne Arundel County Police are also still seeking information in the November 14, 2014 shooting death of Janvante Jaquan Parker and the September 29, 2014 shooting/attempted murder of Ernest Green Jr.  These shootings, along with Breon Cager, all occurred within a one block radius of the Freetown Community and at this point investigators are not ruling out the possibility of them being related. 

This marks the first homicide of the year for Anne Arundel County. Last year there were 13 homicides in the county.
