On 03/12/2019 at approximately 09:24am, a suspect captured on NEST video attempted to unlawfully enter a residence on County Line Road between Lexington Ave and Woodland Drive; the report to police was delayed several hours. A pry-bar can be seen in his right jacket pocket when he moves his right arm. The dogs barking after he rang the doorbell may have scared him off. We also received a delayed report of a suspicious person in the backyard of a residence on Lexington Ave which occurred at approximately 08:30am.
The video was circulated and posted on CrimeWatch which pushed out to Facebook and Twitter; the suspect was identified by two (2) separate people as Michael Rainey. Charges were filed on Rainey and a warrant for his arrest was obtained. Officers made several attempts to locate Rainey at his last known addresses, which were unsuccessful. Rainey turned himself into police on 03/21/2019 and confessed to the crime in a police interview.
