— A telephone call from an observant resident led to the recovery of stolen property, according to Police Chief Allen Miller.
“A resident called Saturday night and said there’s a guy out there walking around and looking in car windows,” Miller said Thursday of the call that came from the townhouse community off Frenchtown Road known as Frenchtown Crossing. “Our officer finds the guy ... and looks in his vehicle.”
Miller said inside the Dodge Ram pickup was a laptop computer, pellet gun, sunglasses, a GPS, clothing and other items.
“We made an that,” he said.
Daishai Laken Smith, 23, from Perry Point, faces 11 charges, eight for rogue and vagabond — which refers to breaking and entering a motor vehicle and, or, stealing its contents — and three for theft under $100.
He was freed after posting a $2,500 bond Saturday, Nov. 24.
Days before, another pair of Perryville Police officers on patrol discovered
“They found electric drills, lawn and garden items hidden in the bushes,” property along Broad Miller said. Among the items near the former Muller-Thyme property was a bicycle and a backpack.
“We recognized the backpack from one of our homeless people in town,” the chief said.
Once all the property was taken to police headquarters, a call came in from a resident stating his shed had been broken into and items were missing. Officers matched all the recovered items to that burglary, Miller said. An arrest in that case is pending. Meanwhile, the search is on for the owners of the property recovered along Rustic Court.
Miller said he does not believe the two incidents are connected.
