Two Burglary Arrests Made Due To Quick Reporting & Quick Response

On two occasions within the past week, an Anne Arundel County Police Department patrol officer assigned to the Eastern District nabbed two burglary suspects. Officer Bacchus was working the evening shift on February 16th when he was dispatched to a burglary in progress at a home in the 7900 block of Oakwood Road in Glen Burnie. The 911 caller reported someone had broken into her neighbor’s house. As Officer Bacchus arrived, he encountered a female coming out of the home, carrying a purse. Officer Bacchus checked the house and found that an elderly woman was home alone when this burglary occurred. The burglar, identified as Valeria Marie Jordan, 49, of Arverne, New York, was arrested and charged. The homeowner, thankfully, was unharmed.

Officer Bacchus was again on patrol in Glen Burnie on Tuesday, February 20th, when he was dispatched to another burglary, this time in the 200 block of Mountain Ridge Road. The female caller told dispatchers a male had climbed onto her apartment balcony and was trying to force his way into her home. Officer Bacchus’ quick response enabled him to take this would-be burglar, 28-year-old Anthony Chandler Godbolt, of Baltimore, into custody.

The successful outcome in both of these cases was the result of community members calling 911 immediately, coupled with Officer Bacchus’ ability to respond quickly. Two criminals, intent on victimizing our community members, were taken off the streets.
