The Charles County Sheriff's Office has arrested an adult and a juvenile in connection with five burglaries at a residence in the 9300 block of Maranatha Place in Nanjemoy.
Patrol officers responded to the residence Nov. 9 at 11:54 a.m. for the report of an attempted burglary. Investigation revealed two people were looking inside the windows in the residence and attempting to gain entry through the door when they saw a 20-year-old girl inside the residence and subsequently fled on foot. Officers located the suspects several minutes later walking along the wood line near the residence and detained them. A K9 unit participating in the search located evidence from the attempted burglary in the woods.
The suspects were identified as Tony David Wald, 18, and a 16-year-old boy, both of Nanjemoy. They were both arrested and charged with first degree burglary, possessing burglar's tools, theft less than $500 and trespassing/invasion of privacy. Wald was transported to the Charles County Detention Center and the juvenile was released to a parent.
Detectives later linked the accused to four other burglaries at the residence, which occurred Aug. 1, Aug. 2, Aug. 11 and Nov. 8. During those burglaries, the accused stole jewelry, CDs and video games. Wald was charged Dec. 7 with theft scheme more than $500 and an additional four counts of first degree burglary. He is being held at the Charles County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond for the first burglary charge and a $25,000 bond for the additional charges. The juvenile was charged Dec. 7 with three additional counts of first degree burglary as well as theft more than $500 and is awaiting further juvenile court proceedings.
