BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police have identified the three out-of-state men arrested in connection with the recent string of burglaries in the Falls Road corridor.
Authorities say 33-year-old Demar Anthony Brown, of Winston-Salem, NC, 32-year-old Kamar Oliver Beckles, of Teaneck, NJ, and 33-year-old Jashon Clarence Fields, of Atlanta, GA, have been charged with 20 counts of first-degree burglary.
For months, police say the three men broke into nearly two dozen homes in the area stealing property such as jewelry, cash and even safes — sometimes while families were home.
Authorities finally caught up with the men Friday night, when detectives say someone noticed something suspicious at a home on Blenheim Road. Police say the men were staying in a hotel near the area.
WJZ has found that Beckles and Fields didn’t have any criminal history in Maryland, but Brown has an extensive criminal history, including a charge of first-degree burglary in 2014.
Detectives are now investigating to see if the trio is connected to more crimes.
The price tag from these heists could top seven figures.
“Based on the amount of jewelry, the money and the property that was stolen, we believe it’s going to be in the millions,” Baltimore County Police Corporal Shawn Vinson said.
All three men are being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bail status.
