[ARCHIVED] Street Crimes Unit makes arrest for stolen vehicle

Covert surveillance of suspicious persons led to the recovery of a stolen vehicle and an arrest of the driver.

On 12/5/12 at about 12:53 AM, OFC Malatesta of the Street Crimes Unit was working in a covert capacity in the 1500 block of W Patrick St when he observed two subjects park a vehicle in an out of the way spot and remove a bag from the trunk. He contacted the two on foot nearby and found them to be in possession of tools and a quantity of freshly cut copper. A check of the vehicle registration showed it was stolen from Rockville.

OFC Malatesta placed the driver under arrest and charged him with motor vehicle theft and unauthorized use after the vehicle owner was contacted.

The passenger was released without charges. Anyone who experienced a copper theft overnight is encouraged to contact OFC Malatesta at (301) 600-7525.

No photograph of Pineda-Danegas was available at the time of the release.

Arrestee: Jeffry Josue Pineda-Danegas DOB 09/08/1989
12000 block Keating St, Rockville MD
Author of Release: CPL Corbett
CR# 12-076441
