Suspect Arrested for Multiple Residential Burglaries

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police 4th District Investigative Section have been investigating residential burglaries that have occurred within their jurisdiction.  Between October of 2010 and January of 2011 a significant number of residential burglaries were occurring within Olney, Aspen Hill, and north Silver Spring communities.

            It was learned that entry was being gained through a rear door or window and the primary target for theft was jewelry.

            On Friday, January 28, 4th District officers responded to a reported burglary that had occurred in the 13700 block of Lockdale Road in Silver Spring.  Through the course of that investigation, a description of the suspect, white male who was wearing a red cap, was developed.  The suspect had left his cell phone charging at the victim residence.  It was later learned that the power was out at the suspect’s residence and that prompted him to break into another residence to charge his phone.  After detectives placed a call to a recently called number on the phone, the name and home address of the suspect was confirmed.

            On January 28, officers went to the suspect’s residence in Silver Spring and were able to determine that he was inside.  Cody Wilkins, age 26, from the 12800 block of Littleton Street in Silver Spring was taken into custody.  It was learned that he was responsible for other burglaries.  On January 29 he was charged with three counts of first-degree burglary, one count of theft of property with a value between $10,000 and $100,000, two counts of theft of property valued between $1,000 and $10,000, three counts of Malicious destruction of property valued at $500 or more, and one count of possession with intent to use drug paraphernalia for burglary incidents that occurred on January 26, in the 1900 block of Middlebridge Drive; on January 28 in the 13700 block of Lockdale Road, and on January 28 in the 13800 block of Turnmore Road.  Wilkins was released on bond.  A search warrant executed at Wilkins’ residence produced significant quantities of jewelry and some electronics.

            On January 31 addition pieces of stolen jewelry were recovered and much of the jewelry was returned to the rightful owners.  Also on January 31, officers obtained a warrant charging him with three additional counts of first-degree burglary, one count of theft of property valued between $10,000 and $100,000, one count of theft of property valued between $1,000 and $10,000, one count of theft of property valued less than $1,000, and malicious destruction of property valued less than $500 for burglaries that occurred on December 3, 2010 in the 3300 block of Sandberg Terrace in Olney, on January 4 in the 5700 block of Stillwell Road in Rockville, and that occurred on January 11 in the 17300 block of Evangeline Lane in Olney.      

On February 1, a warrant was obtained charging him with four more counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of theft of property valued between $1,000 and $10,000, two counts of theft of property valued between $10,000 and $100,000, and two counts of malicious destruction of property valued less than $500 for burglaries that occurred on January 18 in the 15300 block of Rosecroft Road in Rockville, on January 18 in the 15200 block of Rosecroft Road in Rockville, on January 24 in the 13500 block of Winding trail Court in Silver Spring, and the 13577 block of Coachlamp Lane in Silver Spring.  Wilkins was taken into custody again on February 1.  

            Wilkins had a bond hearing today and is currently being held with bonds for each of the three warrants.  They are a $50,000, and two $500,000 bonds.

The investigation continues and detectives believe that Wilkins will be linked to many other burglaries that occurred in the 4th District between October of 2010 and January of this year.  Detectives request that anyone in the jewelry business who had contact with Wilkins get in touch with them at 240-773-5530.
