St. Mary's City, Maryland – On March 20, 2015, at 4:35 PM, deputies responded to a residence on Morning Glory Lane, for a reported burglary to an occupied residence. The Emergency Communications Center received a description of the suspect vehicle and provided it to responding deputies. Corporal J. Graves observed the vehicle in the parking lot of an apartment complex located in the 13000 block of Point Lookout Road in Ridge. Corporal Graves and additional deputies attempted to locate the occupants of the vehicle while Deputy T. Wesner responded to the scene of the burglary.
The burglary victim alleged he heard noises coming from the basement. When he entered the basement he found the exterior doors wide open and the suspect vehicle pulling out of the driveway. The victim was able to see the driver and a passenger in the vehicle. Deputy Wesner determined suspects forced entry into the residence through the basement door damaging the door and frame. However, the homeowner interrupted the suspects before anything was stolen.
Meanwhile, deputies at the apartment complex were able to determine which apartment belonged to the operator of the suspect vehicle. Deputies subsequently searched the apartment and located suspects Deandre T. Keys, age 18, of Lexington Park, and Terrance Marquis Savoy, age 22, of Ridge, hiding in the attack under insulation. Keys and Savoy were placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. Both were charged with 1st Degree Burglary and Malicious Destruction of Property Under $1,000.
