Police Arrest Two Men in Connection Theft of Handguns from Clarksburg Vehicle

October 24, 2015

Montgomery County Police from the Fifth District have charged two 18-year men with theft and firearm offenses after they stole property, including two handguns from a vehicle assigned to a federal agent.

   Police have arrested Tavis Lee Clore, 18 of an unconfirmed address on Pine Pond Drive in Clarksburg and Jarvis Johnson, of an unconfirmed address in connection with a theft from vehicle which took place on Sweetspire Drive in Clarksburg on Thursday, Oct. 22.

   On October 22 at 6:30 am, officers from the 5th District responded to a residence in the 22300 block of Sweetspire Drive in Clarksburg for the report of a theft from a vehicle. The investigation revealed that a backpack containing two handguns that were issued to the federal agent were stolen from a vehicle used by him.

   Later that morning, at approximately 11:42 am, detectives were in the area of the 12100 block of Pine Pond Place in Clarksburg and witnessed a drug transaction involving a male subject. Detectives arrested Jarvis Johnson for the drug transaction and located a handgun in his possession. The handgun was determined to have been stolen from the vehicle on Sweetspire Drive.

   Johnson was transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with possession of a firearm by a minor, carrying a handgun on his person, theft: $1,000 to under $10,000, theft less than $100, conspiracy to commit theft: $1,000 to $10,000, and rogue and vagabond. At this time, Johnson is being held on a $10,000 bond.

   Further investigation by detectives identified Tavis Lee Clore as an additional suspect in the theft from vehicle crime. On Friday, October 23 at approximately 3:30 pm, detectives arrested Clore in the 12100 block of Pine Pond Drive. Further investigation by detectives led to the recovery of the second stolen handgun in a heavily wooded area off of Prices Distillery Road in Clarksburg.

   Clore was transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with possession of a firearm by a minor, carrying a handgun on his person, theft: $1,000 to under $10,000, theft less than $100, conspiracy to commit theft: $1,000 to $10,000, and rogue and vagabond. Bond information for Clore is not available at the time of publication.

   Once again, the Montgomery County Police Department is urging residents to remove all items of value from vehicles and to lock their vehicle doors. These simple steps are the easiest way to prevent becoming a victim of theft and to prevent a crime from occurring.
