Wanted Burglary Suspect Arrested in Stolen Vehicle; Charged with Additional Burglary After Investigation

For Immediate Release: Monday, January 25, 2021

Officers from the 3rd District have arrested and charged Daniel Tesfamihret, age 37, of Braddock Road in Silver Spring, with vehicle theft after officers located him driving a stolen vehicle.  Officers also charged Tesfamihret with second-degree burglary after he was found to be in possession of stolen packages from a recently reported burglary.  At this time of his arrest, Tesfamihret also was wanted for burglarizing the Self Storage Plus located on New Hampshire Avenue in White Oak on December 29, 2019.

On January 18, a vehicle locator service informed the Emergency Communications Center (911) that a vehicle stolen from Connecticut was under a structure in the area of Fenton Street and Thayer Avenue in downtown Silver Spring.  Officers responded to a parking garage located at 909 Thayer Avenue and located Tesfamihret in the stolen vehicle; he was arrested. In the stolen vehicle, officers located bolt cutters and a box whose addressee was a local storage facility that had been burglarized on January 12.  Investigators reviewed surveillance video from that storage facility and observed a suspect matching Tesfamihret arrive at the business in a vehicle matching the description of the stolen vehicle.

Tesfamihret was transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with offenses to include vehicle theft, second-degree burglary of the storage facility, and possession of burglary tools.  He was also served with the warrant for his arrest for second-degree burglary.  Tesfamihret is being held without bond.
