Mother identifies son as suspect in Arlandria burglary

A 23-year-old Alexandria man is being held without bond for statutory burglary after being turned in to police by his mother.

The suspect was arrested on July 5 — two weeks after the incident.

Police initially responded to the 300 block of Manor Road for a report of a burglary at around 10 p.m. on June 19. Police found the suspect pushing a cart with stolen property, and the suspect “immediately ran” from police and left the property behind, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The suspect successfully eluded police.

The next day, June 20, the person who called 911 and told police that the suspect just walked out of the same apartment complex and got into a car, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Police interviewed the suspect’s mother, who was shown surveillance video and positively identified her son as the suspect fleeing from police. She then gave police her son’s phone number, and said that he’d called her with that number within a day of the incident.

The suspect goes to court on July 29.
