Crime Solvers Program More than Doubles Reward Amount for Tipsters
We’re starting the first Wanted Wednesday of 2016 with information we hope will help close even more cases this year. For the first time in its more than 35-year history, the Prince George’s County Crime Solvers organization just raised its maximum reward payout to $2,500. Previously, it was $1,000. The new higher reward amount will be offered for tips on several crimes including robberies, burglaries and thefts. The reward amount for an unsolved homicide, rape and specific violent crime cases remains up to $25,000. The higher reward amount took effect on January 1st.
Brazen Attempted Burglary Suspect
This brazen suspect in these surveillance pictures is wanted for climbing onto a second floor balcony and trying to break into a home in the middle of the afternoon. He was stopped by a locked sliding glass door. He targeted a home on Prince Place in Largo back on Christmas day. Investigators are working to identify this man and are looking into whether he’s connected to any other similar cases. Please call 301-390-2160 with any information on this suspect. Tipsters can also call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS. You will not have to give your name.
Game Store Robbery
These two suspects robbed a game store in the 14000 block of Baltimore Avenue in Laurel on January 2nd. One of the suspects had a gun. They demanded cash and items from employees. They then ran from the store. The tipster who helps us find and arrest these two suspects is eligible for a reward of up to $2,500—that’s the new, higher Crime Solvers reward that took effect in 2016. Call 1-866-411-TIPS with information or 301-772-4905.
Attempted Murder Suspect
Our detectives are working to find and arrest Anthony Joseph Keys of the 200 block of 50th Street in Northeast Washington. The investigation reveals he stabbed a family member after an argument at a home on Southview Drive in Oxon Hill. This happened at about 3:00 am on January 1st. Preliminarily, the victim is expected to survive his injuries. Anyone with information on where we can find Keys is asked to call 301-749-5064 or Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
Attempted Robbery Investigation
Detectives would like to talk with anyone with information on a robbery at a discount store on January 4th in Mount Rainier. The suspect in these photos pulled out a gun and demanded cash. He ultimately left without any money. Please call 1-866-411-TIPS with information. A cash reward is available.
Search for Homicide Suspect
Our Homicide Unit continues to actively search for a suspect wanted in connection with a homicide last September. He’s 26-year-old Walker Jamal Davis of the 5800 block of Terence Drive in Clinton. Detectives made one arrest in this case shortly after the fatal shooting. On September 17, 2015, at about 10:00 pm, patrol officers responded to the 4700 block of 23rd Parkway for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found 26-year-old Karria Mary Suggs of 51st Street in Bladensburg suffering from gunshot wounds inside of an apartment. The preliminary investigation reveals the shooting stemmed from a robbery attempt. Preliminarily, investigators do not believe this was a random act. Anyone with information on where we can find Davis is asked to call our Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925 or Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
