CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Prosecutors have announced the convictions of two people in connection with an armed home invasion that occurred last summer in Cambridge.
On Tuesday, March 12, a Dorchester County Circuit Court jury convicted Stephen Justus Howe, 18, of Denton,on 15 counts, including armed robbery, first-degree burglary and related offenses. Howe will be sentenced on June 3.
On Tuesday, March 19, co-defendant Laquon Allen Williams, 21, of Cambridge, pleaded guilty to armed robbery and third-degree burglary for his involvement in the same crime. Dorchester Circuit Court Judge Brett W. Wilson sentenced Williams to 20 years active incarceration, with an additional 10 years sentence to be suspected.
According to investigators, the convictions stemmed from an incident that occurred late in the evening of Aug. 19, 2012, when Cambridge police were dispatched to 715 Travers St. for a reported home invasion. When officers arrived on the scene, they met with a victim who stated that he was asleep in bed when unknown persons knocked on his front door.
According to police, the victim got up and observed three suspects armed with handguns force their way inside the home. The victim and his girlfriend were forced to the ground at gunpoint, investigators said. Police said the three suspects then went through the home and took six guns before fleeing. After the suspects left, the victim was able to call police. A short time later, officers said they observed three people matching the description of the suspects in the incident.
Officers, with the assistance of a police K-9 unit, gave pursuit and were able to capture two of the three suspects, identified as Howe and Williams. During the pursuit officers also recovered the six stolen guns, police said.
