Robert Damon Proctor, 23, of Lexington Park remained in custody this week in lieu of $15,000 bond after his arrest and a court hearing on burglary, theft and property destruction charges from a break-in last month to storage units at a business off Great Mills Road.
Desmond Vincent Proctor, 20, of Lexington Park earlier was jailed in lieu of $10,000 bond on charging papers alleging he broke into storage units at the business and stole two dirt bikes and three firearms. Detectives reported that a 16-year-old boy also was charged through the investigation and that he was detained at a state juvenile facility.
Employees at Patuxent Self Storage off Great Mills Road discovered in May that a perimeter fence surrounding its storage units had been cut, court papers state, and that locks had been cut off 19 of the storage units. Missing items included the dirt bikes owned by Marcus Young and Jermaine Davis, and the three firearms owned by Michael Richardson.
Law officers raided a home off Great Mills Road and found the two bikes and three firearms in a shed, according to a statement of probable cause filed by St. Mary’s detective Cpl. Robert Merritt. Cherry Grove Property Management, owner of the self-storage facility, reported to police that the burglary caused $3,400 in damages to the business.
