Suspect in a slew of residential burglaries in Stafford arrested
From the Stafford Sheriff’s Office:
A suspect behind a string of residential burglaries in the Staffordboro Commuter Lot area was arrested on Saturday by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office after a homeowner caught the suspect breaking into his home.
On November 9, 2019, at approximately 9:29 p.m., members of the Special Problems Unit responded to reports of a suspect breaking into a residence on the 120 block of Doc Stone Road. Upon arrival, they made contact with one of the homeowners who advised that her husband had apprehended the suspect in the front yard.
The suspect was taken into custody and identified as Danis Antonio Calix-Garcia, 28, of Stafford. Air fresheners were found in the suspect’s pockets. Deputies determined they were stolen from the homeowner’s vehicle.
The homeowners told deputies they were watching a movie when they heard a sound outside near the rear of the residence. The husband went outside to investigate and found some missing items near the garage. He then observed the suspect and told him to stop. When the suspect attempted to flee, the homeowner grabbed him and a struggle ensued. The homeowner held the suspect on the ground until deputies arrived.
Detectives determined the suspect was behind nine other recent burglaries in the area.
The suspect was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond on numerous charges including breaking and entering, attempted grand larceny, tampering with a vehicle, petit larceny, and vandalism.
