Four arrested in home invasion
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.
Stacey was charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery, second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery, fourth-degree burglary, theft and two counts of rogue and vagabond. She was released on $40,000 bond Feb. 1. Trail is set for March 20.
Dejeune Kiearius Waits, 20, of Chestertown was charged conspiracy to commit armed robbery, second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of rogue and vagabond. The warrant was served Jan. 26.
A 12-year-old boy from Chestertown was referred to Juvenile Services on charges of armed robbery, seconddegree assault, conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery and reckless endangerment.
