Detectives from the Montgomery County Police 4th District Investigative Section have been investigating incidents of two burglaries and two stolen vehicles that occurred on June 21, in the Olney area.
Through the course of the investigation a suspect was developed and located in Washington, D.C. today. Gregory Maurice Holland, age 22, from the 2700 block of 10th Street in NE Washington D.C., is currently being held in Washington, D.C., pending extradition to Montgomery County.
The 2007 Toyota Camry stolen from the Crystal Spring Drive residence, was also located in Washington, D.C.
Yesterday, June 21 at 12:24 p.m., a call came in to the 9-1-1 call center from the 16000 block of Lehigh Drive to report a suspicious person and vehicle in the area. When officers responded they found a vehicle that didn’t belong at a residence in the 16800 block of Excaliber Way. It was later developed that vehicle had been stolen. Responding officers witnessed a suspect exit from the rear of the residence and flee on foot. A perimeter was established but the suspect was not located.
Also on June 21 at 3:00 p.m. a 9-1-1 call came in from the 100 block of Crystal Spring Drive to report a residential burglary. Forced entry was made to the residential garage and a teal 2007 Toyota Camry with Maryland tag 2BZD33 was stolen.
Due to the fact that there have been other residential burglaries in the Olney area, including one in which firearms were stolen, area residents witnessed a large police response on June 21, which included the use of a helicopter and K-9.
It has been determined that Holland was the suspect wanted in seven other residential burglaries that also recently occurred on Fulford Street in Olney, Cashell Road in Rockville, Thornhurst Drive in Olney, Briars Road in Olney, Old Baltimore Road in Olney, and Bloomfield Road in Brookville. This includes the residential burglary where firearms were stolen. He remains under investigation for an attempted burglary on Willow Lane in Rockville.
(A mug shot of Holland is not available because he is currently in custody in D.C.)
