Alexandria Police Arrest Two Burglars
Alexandria Police Detectives have charged two men in separate burglaries after a thorough investigation into two commercial burglaries that occurred in November of 2010.
The first burglary occurred between the evening of November 4 and morning hours of November 5 in the 2000 block of Duke Street. The suspect entered the business after closing and stole six laptops. The suspect was caught on video surveillance cameras. He was identified as Kenard Eugene Johnson, 45, of Prince George’s County, Maryland. Warrants for Johnson were issued for burglary, grand larceny and larceny with the intent to sell. He was taken into custody by Prince George’s County Police on December 10 without incident. He has since been extradited to Arlington County were he faces charges in their jurisdiction. He will be held there pending extradition to Alexandria.
The second commercial burglary occurred between November 10 and 11 in the 1600 block of Duke Street. The suspect entered the business after hours and stole three laptops and other small electronic devices, including a projection system, video game system, digital camera, web camera and external hard drive. Video surveillance cameras captured the suspect. The suspect was identified as Morris Woodrow Feggins, 41, of Washington, DC. Feggins was charged with burglary and grand larceny. He was taken into custody at his residence with the assistance of the Washington Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). With the cooperation of MPD detectives, a search warrant was obtained and executed at his residence. The search revealed a large stash of laptops, electronic devices and jewelry. These items were taken as evidence by detectives and will be sorted through in hopes of closing several other cases around the region and ultimately returning the items to their rightful owners.
Both Johnson and Feggins potentially face other charges pending the outcome of the investigations.
