At about 2:20am on May 19th officers responded to a commercial burglar alarm at the Bird Café on 34th Street. When they arrived they saw a man fleeing the business carrying a cash register drawer. The officers pursued the man but lost sight of him in the area of 37th and Perry Streets. PGPD Air 1 and a K-9 unit assisted in the search with negative results. Officers canvassed the area and interviewed a citizen who had seen photos of a possible suspect on the MRPD Facebook page that may also have been responsible for the Bird Café burglary. The citizen’s information led the officers to the suspect’s residence in the 4500 block of 41st Avenue in North Brentwood. The suspect was positively identified and taken into custody. He was transported to PGPD District I detective bureau. He will be charged with commercial burglary of Bird Café. Charges for several other commercial burglaries in Mount Rainier, Brentwood and Hyattsville are pending.
