Chief Antonio DeVaul from the Takoma Park Police Department announced the arrest of a 15-year-old female juvenile of Hyattsville, Maryland, for residential burglary.

According to police, “On November 24, at approximately 2:00 pm, Takoma Park Police officers responded to the 200 block of Spring Avenue for a residential burglary in progress.  The residence was unoccupied while under renovation.  However, the homeowner, remotely monitoring the property via a home video surveillance system, observed two suspects inside the residence and immediately contacted the Takoma Park Police. Simultaneously, the homeowner requested a neighbor to check on the home while awaiting the police’s response.

Upon the arrival of Takoma Park Police officers, it was discovered that the two suspects had fled the premises on foot. A 15-year-old juvenile suspect was apprehended and detained near the rear of the Washington McLaughlin School. The juvenile was subsequently transported to the police station and later released into her parent’s custody.

Law enforcement officials are actively pursuing leads to locate and apprehend the remaining suspect.”
