Burglary Suspect Arrested

The Metropolitan Police Department has announced that an arrest has been made in the two burglaries in which elderly victims have been targeted.     The reported crimes occurred on June 19, 2012 in the 1400 block of Florida Avenue, NE and on June 26, 2012 in the 1200 block of G Street, SE.    In both instances the suspect knocked on the victims’ door, advised he was a maintenance worker, and that he needed to fix a toilet that was leaking to the below apartment. After gaining entry the suspect went to the bathrooms and surveyed the toilets. He then assaulted the victims and stole personal property.   On Thursday, June 28, 2012, 47 year-old Anthony Ford of Southeast, DC was arrested and charged with Burglary One in connection with these offenses.   The Metropolitan Police Department would also like thank our partners in the media for helping to publicize this case.
