Detectives with the Frederick Police Department have made an arrest in an armed home invasion...

On 7/15/14, at approximately 2216 hours, Frederick Police officers and detectives responded to the 1000 block of Columbine Dr. for an armed home invasion. Officers located a male and female victim inside of their apartment. The victims said they heard a knock at the door, and when the male victim answered, he was pulled out of his apartment at gunpoint by two black male suspects. One of the suspects displayed a handgun. The suspects then went inside the apartment and threatened the female victim. The suspects fled from the apartment after they saw the female trying to hold back the couple’s large dog.

Through the course of the investigation it was determined the male victim knew one of the suspects, and this is not believed to be a random event. A short time later, the suspect was apprehended at his home.

The suspect was identified as:

Omari Claude Samms
B/M, 01/11/1987
400 Block Heather Ridge Dr.
Frederick, MD 21701

Samms was taken to FCADC and charged with the following:

• 1st degree assault
• 2nd degree assault
• 1st degree burglary
• 3rd degree burglary
• 4th degree burglary

The second suspect in this case is unknown at this time. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the lead detective, Det. Gene Alston, at 301-600-1269. Anonymous tips may be given by calling 301-600-TIPS.

Case#: 2014-54158
Lead Investigator: Det. Gene Alston
Author of Release: D/Sgt. Joe Hayer @ 301-600-1265 or jhayer@frederickmdpolice.org
