Two men named as suspects in a Sunday morning Salem burglary were captured Monday by U.S. marshals.
A Salem police news release said Roanoke residents DeAnthony Marquis Jackson, 19, and Percy Johnson IV, 20, were captured at separate locations in the city by marshals assigned to the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force’s Roanoke office.
Jackson and Johnson were named as suspects in a burglary at a home in the 10 block of McCauley Drive, just off East Main Street. Officers responded to the home at 5:12 a.m. Sunday, the release said, while 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. Police said two other men escaped through the back door.
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 news release said.
Jackson and Johnson are charged with breaking and entering while armed with a firearm. They are both being held in Roanoke City Jail.
Steven Wilson Perez, 20, of Floyd County was arrested at the scene Sunday and 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 arrested Sunday 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 investigation is ongoing.
