[ARCHIVED] Arrest of Local Burglary Suspect

     This morning, as the result of an in depth investigation conducted by Detective Sergeant Angela Campbell and Officer Tim Smith, the Orange County Sheriff’s  West Side Fugitive Unit located and arrested 24 year old Steven Lamar Nedd for numerous crimes connected to burglaries which occurred in Oakland.

       In February, we began to be plagued by a series of residential burglaries.  Some of these burglaries occurred while the homes were occupied.  Weapons, electronics, jewelry and cash were among the items taken.   On two occasions,  vehicles were stolen.    We shared this information on the department web site and with our local Neighborhood Watch group.  From the outset our officers worked diligently on these cases.   Additionally we ran a number of surveillance operations in an attempt to identify and apprehend those responsible.

     In mid-May Sergeant Campbell located some of the stolen items in an area pawn shop.  Since most pawn shops utilize surveillance cameras, Sergeant Campbell was able to positively identify the person pawning items taken in our burglaries as Nedd. He was also identified in a video taken at an Apopka gas station, driving one of the vehicles stolen from Oakland.

     As the investigation continued, Nedd was tied to a number of burglaries, including those that occurred at 525 N. Tubb St., 302 N. Arrington St., 218 W. Oakland Av. and 505 W. Herriott Av..  Working with the assistance of Officer Smith, Sergeant Campbell located additional stolen property and developed new leads.  A number of stolen items have already been returned to the victims.   The stolen vehicles and some of the stolen property have been recovered.   A total of six warrants were ultimately obtained by Sergeant Campbell for Nedd’s arrest.   These warrants contained various charges, including burglary, grand theft, credit card theft, illegal use of a credit card, dealing in stolen property, false verification to a second hand dealer and criminal mischief.

    While we do not have enough evidence to charge Nedd with any additional burglaries at this time, those investigations continue.
