Two indicted in Ellicott City CITGO theft

Two men charged in the theft of an automated teller machine (ATM) from an Ellicott City CITGO last month have been indicted by a Howard County Grand Jury. 

Muyideen Ayinla Nureni, 31, of Hyattsville, and Patric Jamal Frazier, 25, of Washington D.C., were indicted on second-degree burglary, theft, conspiracy and other charges in connection with the April 10 incident.

Both have been released on $500,000 bond, according to the indictment handed down on May 7.

According to police, officers were dispatched to the CITGO, located in the 8300 block of Baltimore National Pike, at 2 a.m. April 10 for a report of a burglary. Police said officers found one of the front doors of the station forced open and an ATM stolen. 

Through an investigation, police identified a suspect vehicle, a silver Dodge pickup truck, which was found on Interstate 95 near Route 32, police said.

Police said the suspects ran from the vehicle before being apprehended.  The suspect vehicle had been reported stolen in Beltsville on March 31, according to a police press release. 

Police said they are investigating the possibility that Nureni and Frazier are connected to other commerical burglaries in Howard County.

Nureni and Frazier face 23 counts of burglary, theft and other charges stemming from incidents on March 19, March 31 and April 5.
