Germantown Family Members Charged in Utility Pole Theft

August 23, 2014

A Germantown man and two underage family members have been arrested in connection with the theft of utility poles valued at $25,000 from a Rockville construction site.

   Montgomery County Police Detectives from the 6th District have arrested and charged Marvin W. Frazier, 33 of the 13400 block of Whitechurch Circle in Germantown, along with two teenage suspects, age 13 and 15, with early morning burglary and theft at construction site on Key West Avenue in Rockville.

   At approximately 1:40 am Saturday, Aug. 23, officers were called to the construction site for a suspicious situation. The Emergency Communications Center (9-1-1) had received a call for subjects placing utility poles in a U-Haul truck in the area and the caller was concerned the poles had been stolen.

   Accordign to an MCPD press release, officers responded to the area and located a minivan backing up to a U-Haul box truck in the Extended Stay America hotel parking lot located at 2621 Research Boulevard. As officers attempted to obtain information from the driver of the minivan, they observed three males, wearing gloves and dark clothing, run away from the area of the U-Haul truck. Officers were able to detain the three males in the Sleep Inn parking lot located at 2 Research Court. The first male was identified as Frazier. The other two males were identified as Frazier’s family members and are 13 and 15 years old.

   Officers observed that the rear of the U-Haul truck was open and the length of the utility poles prevented the U-Haul door from completely closing. Signs for Interstate 270 were attached to the poles. Investigation by detectives revealed that the poles were stolen from Paradigm Companies’ construction site located at 9435 Key West Avenue. The construction site is bordered by two fences.

   The female driver of the minivan was identified as Frazier’s family member. She had been called by Frazier to pick him and the two juveniles up when Frazier realized that the poles would be visible and that it would appear suspicious if he drove the stolen property using the truck. Frazier stated that he had decided to park the U-Haul in the hotel parking lot and planned to return the next day, according to MCPD.

   Frazier was arrested and transported to the Central Processing Unit.  He was charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, and felony theft. The two juveniles were arrested and transported to the 6th District station.  They were charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, and felony theft, and were released to the custody of a parent. The driver of the minivan was determined not to be involved in the burglary and theft and was not criminally charged, according to MCPD.
