Armed Men Arrested After Burke-area Burglaries

 

            West Springfield Police District - Police charged two Springfield men after connecting them with a series of burglaries that took place in the Burke area during the afternoon hours of March 19, 2013.

            Andrew Kovch, 27, of 7568 Vogles Way and Jimmy Le, 23 of 6717 Grey Fox Drive were charged with burglary, attempted burglary and grand larceny.

            Officers responded for a report of a burglary of an occupied dwelling in the 9800 block of Lake Meadow Court on March 19 shortly before 1 p.m. The homeowner reported encountering a young man wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and dark pants in the home. The suspect fled in a dark, late 90‘s compact car.

            Just ten minutes later, officers responded to an alarm of a residence in the 10000 block of Waterside Drive. A door had been forcibly opened but no people were located.

            A short time later, police responded to a home in the 8600 block of Norfolk Avenue in Annandale for a resident reporting that she’d spotted an unknown man in her home. The suspect fled but witnesses described the vehicle and a second person that was reportedly picked up nearby.

             Upon hearing the look-outs, patrol officers observed and stopped a vehicle matching the description on Roundabout Way in Springfield. In the course of the investigation, officers found that the driver was armed with a semi-automatic pistol.  Officers also found over 200 rounds of ammunition, a loaded revolver, a mask, gloves, as well as property linking the suspects to the crimes inside the vehicle.

            “We’re grateful to residents who paid close attention to details and called us right away, as these crimes were occurring,” said Captain Joe Hill, Commander of the West Springfield Police District. “Thanks to good communications, our officers were able to link these men to these crimes and make apprehensions.”
