UPDATE June 18: Two more suspects arrested in Salem burglary
Salem police broke up a burglary in progress early Sunday morning but are still looking for two suspects, according to a news release.
Salem officers arrived at a residence in the 10 block of McCauley Drive, just off East Main Street, at 5:12 a.m. Sunday, the release said. An occupant of the home was on the phone with dispatchers.
Officers found a man and a juvenile female suspect at the home and arrested them, while two other men fled through the home's back door and escaped.
The release said a gun that didn't belong to the resident was found inside the home and was seized by police. No one was hurt during the incident and no property was taken, the release said.
Steven Wilson Perez, 20, of Floyd County is charged with statutory burglary, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, felony property damage and conspiracy to commit burglary. He is being held in the Roanoke County-Salem Jail.
The juvenile female is a 16-year-old Roanoke resident. She is charged with statutory burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. The news release, which did not identify her, said the girl is being held at the Roanoke Valley Juvenile Detention Center.
The release said police are looking for the two men who fled the scene. Police said they have identified the suspects as Roanoke residents DeAnthony Marquis Jackson, 19, and Percy Johnson IV, 20.
They are wanted on charges of breaking and entering while armed with a firearm.
Anyone with information about the men is asked to call local law enforcement, Crime Line at 344-8500 or the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force's Roanoke office at 857-2230.
