Quick 911 call leads to burglary arrest


FISHERS — On Monday, at 8:36pm, dispatch received a call from a homeowner in the 9600 block of Bradford Knoll Drive (106th and Cumberland Rd) who stated his front door had just been kicked-in by an unknown male. The caller said the suspect fled his residence after the two encountered each other inside the front door. The homeowner was able to provide descriptions of the suspect and two separate vehicles thought to be involved.

Several Fishers Officers immediately responded to the area and had one of the described suspect vehicles stopped less than 3 minutes later along the 11200 block of northbound Cumberland Road. The vehicle stopped was a 1996 silver Lexus driven by 21 year old Indianapolis resident Dennis Lamont James. Also in the vehicle was 18 year old Indianapolis resident Andre Deon Johnson who matched the description given by the homeowner.

Fishers Detectives arrived to assist with the investigation. The investigation led to the arrest of the two suspects on burglary and marijuana possession charges with Johnson being charged additionally with a felony charge of dealing in marijuana.

Detectives have reason to believe the other vehicle involved in the attempted burglary is a 2005 tan Jeep Grand Cherokee that was reported stolen from another Fishers residence on 2/25/2011. Detectives say this vehicle should be driven by a black male identified only by the name ‘Boo’. Detectives also say that preliminary evidence in this case leads them to believe the suspects involved may also be responsible for other recent Fishers burglaries and the investigation to determine so continues.
