While investigating vehicle break-ins, South Division Detectives were able to determine that McAdams was near the scene of each of these vehicle break-ins through crime scene correlation with the use of the Electronic Monitoring System. Further investigation revealed that McAdams was at the Arboretum shopping center in the 3200 block of Pineville-Matthews Road. Detectives respond to the location and located McAdams, along with a second suspect, Riva Mason, DOB: 08/28/1996, attempting to break into vehicles (20160303-1051-01). Both suspects were taken into custody without further incident and transported to the South Division for interview.
McAdams has been charged with two counts of Breaking and Entering of a Motor Vehicle, Conspiracy to Commit Breaking and Entering, two counts of Larceny After Breaking and Entering, two counts of Felony Possession of Stolen Goods, two counts of Breaking and Entering a Building with Intent to Commit a Felony Larceny, Resisting an Officer, three counts of Assault on a Female, three counts of Communicating Threats, three counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Injury, Domestic Violence Enhancement, and Battery of an Unborn Child, Felony Conspiracy. McAdams has been on Electronic Monitoring since February 2, 2016 for Domestic Violence Felony Assault. Mason was charged with Breaking and Entering into a Motor Vehicle, two counts of Assault on a Government Official and Possession of Stolen Goods.
These arrests demonstrate how the use of the Electronic Monitor has led to excellent arrests and solved cases that could have potentially gone unsolved.
