PASADENA, MD. – Anne Arundel County is not short on criminals at this time of year. First, the nest of pirates convene for their annual convention on top of the hill overlooking Annapolis harbor, where they plot to plunder the wealth of the citizens and then appropriate that booty for themselves and spread it around to their friends. And then there are the common criminals who break into homes and steal while citizens are at work. This is the story of such a case from Anne Arundel County Police.
Police say that on January 21, 2015, at approximately 8:36 a.m., officers from the Eastern District responded to a residence in the 3800 block of Westwood Manor in Pasadena for a burglary that just occurred.
Upon arrival, officers located a basement door to the residence that had been kicked in. Witnesses provided a detailed description of the suspect and advised officers that the suspect fled the area in a tan pick-up truck. Numerous officers, including several working a burglary suppression detail, flooded the area.
A short time later, officers located the suspect vehicle, a gold Ford Ranger pick-up truck, driving in the Pasadena area. Officers then initiated a traffic stop. The witness subsequently positively identified the driver as the burglary suspect.
The suspect was arrested and charged with first degree burglary and malicious destruction to property less than $1,000.
Suspect: Patrick Corey Rhodes, 21, of 7806 Leymar Road Glen Burnie, Md.
