Per MCPD: A Rockville man is in custody for a burglary he committed while Montgomery County Fire Rescue investigated a fire in the Arrive Apartment complex on Saturday, February 18, 2023. At approximately 6 a.m., Montgomery County Police and Montgomery County Fire Rescue personnel responded to the location, in the 8700 block of Georgia Ave., for a three-alarm fire in progress.

Montgomery County Fire Rescue personnel evacuated the building and forced entry into several apartments by breaking locks and doors to ensure the safety of all occupants. While on scene, 3rd District officers were notified of a suspicious person. The suspect was seen exiting and re-entering the apartment building and was hiding a Sony PlayStation 5.

Once the apartment residents were able to return to the building, the victim notified police that his apartment was burglarized, and a Sony PlayStation 5 was stolen.  Through the course of the investigation, officers identified 43-year-old Rasheed Duvall as the suspect. A search warrant was obtained for Duvall’s vehicle and detectives found the PlayStation inside.

On Friday, February 24, 2023, Duvall was arrested and transported to the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit, where he was charged with first degree burglary and theft $100 to under $1,500. He is being held without bond.
