GARY

Men arrested at burglary charged

Three men arrested at the scene of a burglary on March 26 were released from custody, but then charged a month later with the incident.

All three live near the victim’s home in the 2300 block of Ohio Street, where Patrolmen Jamal Milton and Isiah Price saw two suspects moving a washing machine away from the building. A neighbor had called police to report seeing three men and a gray car at the house and said they had already taken a water heater.

Milton and Price arrested Lironte Biggs, 19, of 2007 Ohio St., and Gary Moore, 22, of 2257 Kentucky St. Patrolman Thomas Aguilar apprehended Garrison Moore, 25, also of 2257 Kentucky St., as he ran from the home.

All three are charged with burglary. Biggs is scheduled to appear in court Friday on an unrelated charge of criminal deviate conduct, court records show.

Charges stem from birthday party

Jeremiah Smith, 27, of 2648 Waverly Drive, is charged with residential entry and theft in connection with an incident that began at a birthday party at his apartment in September.

The victim told Detective JerVean Gates he was at Smith’s party and met another man “and they hit it off,” the probable cause affidavit states. The victim and other man went to a bedroom, but soon Smith and others kicked in the door and began to attack the other man. The victim fled to his apartment with his computer bag, but without the laptop computer. He said Smith followed him to his apartment, also in Westbrook apartment complex, and kicked in the door there. The victim was unable to retrieve his laptop from Smith, and he declined to accept a replacement laptop that Smith offered to give him in December or January, court records state.

An arrest warrant is issued for Smith, who will be held on $15,000 bail when he is apprehended.
