Police Arrest Man Connected to Home Invasion Robbery

March 8, 2016

 

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department’s Major Crimes Division have arrested a Baltimore man, who they say followed a Germantown resident home using a GPS tracking device, and held committed a home invasion robbery at gunpoint back in November.

   Police arrested Kevin Darnell Carroll, 44, of the 800 block of North Eutaw Street in Baltimore and charged him in connection with the home invasion robbery which took place in the far southern area of Germantown near Darnestown.

   On November 17, 2015, at approximately 8:53 pm, 1st District officers responded to a residence in the 14900 block of Kelley Farm Drive in Germantown for the report of a home invasion robbery. The investigation determined that a 21-year-old male victim and a 14-year-old female victim were entering the home through the garage when they were approached by two suspects wearing ski masks and armed with handguns, according to police.

   The suspects bound both victims in the garage with zip ties and placed duct tape over the mouth of the female victim. One suspect led the male victim through the home, asking where money was kept. The suspects obtained cash and property from the home and fled the area. The victims were able to free themselves from the zip ties and call 9-1-1, said police. No injuries were reported.

   According to court documents, a private investigator hired by the wife of the victim prior to the robbery had followed the husband to the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, a location the homeowner was often frequenting. While the man was inside the casino, the private investigator watched two men place a GPS tracking device on the man’s vehicle, according to court documents.

   The suspects then used information provided by the tracking device to determine the residents’ address to commit the home invasion robbery, police said. Carroll and another man are believed to stolen approximately $6,000 and an iPhone during the robbery.

   Investigators recovered DNA evidence from the duct tape, zip ties, and the GPS tracking device and entered the DNA into a national database for analysis. Montgomery County Police were notified that the DNA recovered from the evidence belonged to Kevin Darnell Carroll.

   On February 29, 2016, detectives obtained a warrant for Carroll’s arrest, charging him with one count of home invasion, one count of armed robbery, two counts of first-degree assault, one count of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and one count of theft: $1,000 to under $10,000.

   On March 2, 2016, detectives executed a search warrant at Carroll’s residence in Baltimore and recovered a ski mask and handgun that they believe were used during this home invasion robbery.

   Detectives continue to investigate this home invasion robbery and are asking anyone with information regarding the identity of the second suspect, described only as a black male, to contact Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or leave a Crime Solvers tip here. Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to the arrest and/or indictment of this suspect. Tipsters will remain anonymous.
