On Wednesday, March 6, 2013, while conducting one such investigation, detectives learned of yet another new burglary that had occurred on Glen Avenue that had not been reported as of yet. As a result of this investigation, Detectives had reason to believe that the home owner had come into harm’s way. Deputies from the Wicomico Sheriff’s Office responded to the address and made entry. They found the 89 year old female home owner bound and gagged and left under a coffee table on the living room floor of the residence. She lives alone and had been left defenseless for approximately 9 hours. She was transported to PRMC where she is listed in stable condition.
The WBI learned during the investigation that the suspects entered the home and found the victim to be present. While controlling the victim’s movements, the suspects spent several minutes in the residence collecting jewelry the victim had been acquiring for a lifetime. They filled a duffle bag they had brought with them with the victim’s jewelry, and just prior to leaving, they bound and gagged the victim and apparently left her to die. While searching for one of the suspects, the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation and the Maryland State Apprehension Team located him as he returned to his residence. After executing a Search & Seizure warrant on the home, detectives from the WBI recovered all the property the suspects had taken from this victim.
The Fruitland Police Department Detectives have been working with the WBI to bring these cases to closure.
The WBI is asking anyone with information to call the WBI at 410-548-4898 or crime solvers at 410-548-1776.
