3 Men Charged In Regional Auto Theft Ring

PIKESVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Three men are charged in a string of thefts from cars, including air bags and other parts.

Baltimore County Police arrested the three men on Feb. 22 after someone called 911 to report a theft in progress in the unit-block of Stonehenge Circle in Pikesville. Detectives were able to link the men to a burglary in the 9000-block of Brynmar Court, where the suspects stripped an automobile of its doors, dash and air bag. At the time, the automobile was parked in a garage, police said.

The suspects are identified as Christian Ariel Pujols-Martinez, 24, of the 7400-block of Long Branch Drive; Maurico Antonio Majano, 32, of the 9300-block of Decator Place; and Dremmier Reinsoso-Silvestre, 26, of the 4900-block of 70th Place.

Pujols-Martinez has been released on $35,000 bail.  Majano and Reinsoso-Silvestre have both been released on $50,000 bail; both have been taken into custody by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.

Police say the investigation has expanded to include Prince George’s County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County and the Maryland State Police. Some of the recovered property has been linked to a string of thefts in Howard County, as well as parts stripped from stolen vehicles in Prince George’s County.

The Regional Auto Theft Task Force is now leading the investigation.
