Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – 5th District Investigate Section have arrested and charged Ke-Onta I. Goldsberry, age 18, of the 13200 block of Country Ridge Drive in Germantown, with burglary and firearm-related offenses after he attempted to sell stolen property online.  Detectives also arrested and charged Christopher Goldsberry, age 23, of the same Country Ridge Drive address in Germantown, with burglary and assault after he was also found to be in possession of property that had been stolen from a Germantown residence.

The investigation by detectives determined that on February 12, a resident reported that his home located in the 20600 block of Shadyside Way in Germantown had been burglarized.  Items, to include an Xbox One gaming system and an Xbox game controller had been stolen.  The next day, investigators learned that Ke-Onta Goldsberry was selling these items online.

On February 16, detectives observed Ke-Onta Goldsberry exit his residence carrying a duffle bag and a fanny pack and leave the area in a vehicle.  Officers stopped that vehicle and located the stolen Xbox One and the stolen game controller in Goldsberry’s duffle bag.  Officers also located a loaded 9mm handgun in Goldsberry’s fanny pack.  He was arrested by officers and transported to the Central Processing Unit (CPU) where he was charged with first-degree burglary and firearm-related offenses.  He was released after posting a $3,500 bond.

Later that afternoon, investigators observed Christopher Goldsberry placing items into the trunk of a vehicle on Sweetgum Circle in Germantown and leaving the area in a vehicle.  Officers stopped that vehicle and located property on Christopher Goldsberry that had been reported stolen during a February 15 residential burglary on Waterside Circle in Germantown.   Christopher Goldsberry was arrested by officers and transported to the 5th District station for a police interview.  During the police interview, Christopher Goldsberry assaulted a 5th District officer.

Christopher Goldsberry was transported to CPU where he was charged with two counts of first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.  He was released after posting a $15,000 bond.

During this investigation, investigators recovered property that they believe was stolen from recent residential burglaries that may have not yet been reported to police.  Detectives are attempting to locate the owners of this property and are asking that any victim of a recent burglary that has not yet reported the burglary to police to contact investigators at 240-773-6237.

Police continue to urge residents to use the Montgomery County Police Department District Stations Safe Exchange Zones when exchanging items.
