The Prince George's County Police Department arrested a suspect in connection with the burglary of a home in Beltsville. The suspect is identified as 20-year-old Terrance Blunt of the 4200 block of 54th Place in Bladensburg.
On July 8, 2013 patrol officers responded for a burglary report in the 13000 block of Ivy Lane in Beltsville. The victim returned home and discovered jewelry, electronics and several credit cards had been stolen. Investigators discovered Blunt used one of the credit cards in a nearby store. Detectives obtained video of the transactions and were able to identify Blunt as the suspect.
Detectives also learned that Blunt pawned several pieces of jewelry that were taken from the home on Ivy Lane. Detectives recovered several gold chains and a pair of earrings.
Detectives obtained a warrant for Blunt on July 15, 2013. As they were filing the paperwork with the court commissioner in Hyattsville, they spotted Blunt in the courthouse lobby. Blunt was in the building to meet with his probation officer. Blunt was immediately arrested without incident. Captain Harold Simms, the Commander of the Regional Investigative Division/Northern Region said it was “the fastest warrant ever served.”
