NORFOLK — Police arrested  man they say provided vehicles from an illegal vehicle rental agency to suspects involved in multiple burglaries in August and September.

According to Norfolk Police spokeswoman Karen Parker-Chesson, Keith Maurice Jones, 40, of the 2000 block of Piedmont Avenue in Portsmouth,  purchased vehicles from the city using a false business named “Quick Rentals, Inc.”

Parker-Chesson says Jones then titled and registered the vehicles to “March-E Fragrances” and likely knew what the vehicles were used for.

According to police, the following burglary/residential incidents occurred with suspect vehicles all registered to “March-E Fragrances.”

August 22, 2013, 500 block of Timothy Avenue (suspects arrested)
August 23, 2013, 100 block of W. Bayview Boulevard (suspects arrested)
August 28, 2013, 8400 block of Lynn River Road (no arrests)
September 2, 2013, 300 block of Lakebridge Drive (no arrests)

Parker-Chesson said on August 24, a vehicle registered to “March-E Fragrances” was stopped for a traffic infraction.  The driver of the vehicle led investigators to additional vehicles.

Authorities said Jones also had some of the vehicles crushed at a Chesapeake salvage yard.

Warrants are issued charging Jones with 22 counts each of obtaining documents from DMV when not entitled thereto, altering or forging certificate of title or registration card, unlawfully transacting or offering to transact business as a corporation without authorization.

Jones is being held at the Norfolk City Jail.

The investigation is ongoing.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

Safety Tips for Parents

Have your child eat dinner before heading out to trick or treat.

Make sure each child carries and uses a flashlight with new batteries.

Know where your children are going.  Make sure they have access to a cell phone so they can check in with you.

Tell them to never eat any candy before you can inspect it.

Unhaunt your Home

Welcome trick or treaters at home by turning on your exterior lights.

Remove anything a child could trip over such as garden hoses, bikes, toys, and lawn decorations.

Check outdoor lights and replace any burned out bulbs.

Wet leaves should be swept from sidewalks and steps.
