A report of a burglar yesterday morning in a house at The Greens of Westminster led to the arrest of a man from the area on charges of burglary and theft from vehicles and yards in the neighborhood, city police said.
Police recovered items including a 19-inch television, a lawn trimmer, a child's scooter, a bicycle, a man's wallet and a woman's purse, credit cards and numerous compact discs, said Maj. Dean A. Brewer. The property was reported missing from a home, a shed, several yards and five or six vehicles that had been parked in the area of Johahn and Stacy Lee drives, he said.
Police were receiving calls from residents about other stolen items yesterday afternoon.
Westminster police officers went to a home in the 600 block of Johahn Drive about 6 a.m. yesterday to investigate a burglary, Brewer said. They saw a man in a car with its doors open parked down the street and several items inside, he said.
Kelwin Gordon Warren of the 200 block of Stacy Lee Drive has been charged with eight crimes, including various degrees of burglary and theft, malicious destruction of property, tampering with a motor vehicle and being a rogue and vagabond, police said.
