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.

Crime prevention tips from your Red Sector Police Officers

June 4, 2008

Crime Prevention tips

From the Norfolk Police Department

and your Red Sector Community Resource Officers

The Red Sector has experienced an increase in residential burglaries.  Many of the burglaries have occurred in the day time hours. We believe that the suspect(s) may be knocking on doors to see if anyone is home before breaking into the home through a front or rear door.

We need your help by using good crime prevention sense.

1.      Be vigilant, if you see anyone that appears suspicious in the neighborhood or in your neighbor’s yard call 911 immediately!

When you call 911 we need to know

·       Is the person male or female?

·       What race are they?

·       Can you tell how old they appear to be?

·       Can you tell how tall they are?

·       How many people do you see?

·       What type of clothing are they wearing?

·       What are they doing that makes them suspicious?

·       Are they in your neighbor’s front or backyard?

·       Does it appear that they are removing items from a house or apartment?

·       Which way are they heading from where you’re located?

·       Have you ever seen them before?

Did you notice a vehicle parked in the area that you have not seen before?

·       What type of vehicle was it?

·       What was the color of the vehicle?

·       What was the license plate number?

Please make sure you write down your serial numbers to all of your valuables in your home such as your T.V.  DVD players, Computer equipment, Stereo equipment, Weapons, Game systems such as Xbox, Wii, and Play stations, your power and hand tools, bicycles, and anything of value in your garage or shed.  Keep the serial numbers in a safe location in case you need them at a later date. 

Please call Crime Prevention 664-6901 to have a Crime Prevention officer to conduct a home security survey of your home.
