KINGSTOWN — The Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice has ar­rested four peo­ple in con­nec­tion with a home in­va­sion on Trus­low Road in Kingstown Jan. 9.

Donna Stu­ber was watch­ing a movie on her com­puter with ear buds when she heard two loud bangs about 10 p.m.; at first, she thought it was part of the show, but then saw an un­known man stand­ing in the door, said Lt. Dale Pa­trick, spokesman for the sher­iff’s of­fice. The man had kicked in the door, dam­ag­ing the lock and frame.

Her hus­band Danny L. Stu­ber re­ported hear­ing a noise, looked down­stairs and heard the in­truder de­mand­ing money, po­lice said. The in­truder turned and fled with­out get­ting any money, Pa­trick said.

A neigh­bor re­ported see­ing the in­truder run to a small white car parked a short dis­tance away.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion, lead by Deputy Jeff Lewis, Cpl. Troy Low­ery and Cpl. John Brock­man of the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit, fo­cused on find­ing the white car. They learned that a Tay­lor Stacey drove a white car and may have had sev­eral peo­ple with her that night.

Upon be­ing ques­tioned, Tay­lor Re­nee Stacey, 19, of Chestertown said she and some friends, two males and a fe­male, were rid­ing around and were low on gas and had no money, po­lice said. They de­cided to try to rob some­one for cash; one of the group sug­gested the res­i­dence on Trus­low Road, po­lice said.

De­tec­tives found and ques­tioned the other peo­ple in the car.

All gave sim­i­lar ac­counts of the night and the rob­bery, po­lice said:

They said they parked a short dis­tance away and An­to­nio Lewis put on a ski mask and was car­ry­ing a re­al­is­tic BB pis­tol when he left the car head­ing to­ward the res­i­dence. A short time later, Lewis ran to the car and told them to go. They all said Lewis told them he had kicked the door twice and saw a woman look­ing at a com­puter. When the woman screamed, he ran.

An­to­nio Ja­mal Lewis, 16, of Bal­ti­more was charged as an adult with armed rob­bery, rob­bery, se­cond-de­gree as­sault, con­spir­acy to com­mit bur­glary, con­spir­acy to com­mit armed rob­bery, con­spir­acy to com­mit rob­bery, first-de­gree bur­glary and third-de­gree bur­glary. He is in cus­tody in Bal­ti­more.
