DPD Crime Division News Update-09 Jan 2016


This is the District 3 Criminal Investigations weekly newsletter. As you know District 3 has been in a little bit of a transition for the last few weeks. And now we are getting back to business as normal. We welcome our new commander, Captain Robert Gaddy and we look forward to his guidance and success.

District 3 Investigators obtained warrants on Montre Jarontay Cates, charging him with a burglary which occurred on Oriole Drive in October. Cates is being charged with Felony Breaking and Entering, Felony Larceny After the Breaking and Entering and Injury to Real Property (He kicked the back door in order to enter the residence). Cates is still at large but we have a big surprise for him as he will be hearing from us real soon. If you see him before we do please call 911 and tell the communicator when and where you saw him. Cates is considered very dangerous.

District 3 Investigators obtained warrants on Anthony Carr Jr. charging him with Robbery which occurred in the 1800 block of Williamsburg Way (The Mews Apartments). On December 30, 2015 at approximately 11:30 p.m. Mr. Carr and  three of his friends robbed one of our citizens as he was exiting his car in the parking lot after a long day at work. They took the victim’s wallet and cash and they made him hold his hands in the air while they held a gun to his face. Mr. Carr and his friends frantically left the scene in a Black Mitsubishi (We believe it was his mom’s car) at a high rate of speed. The getaway car was spotted by a vigilant Durham County Deputy Sheriff who was responding to the area to assist the city police. A short vehicle chase ensued and the vehicle was finally stopped by an overwhelming presence of law enforcement on Valleyshire Road. The occupants jumped out of the car and ran away together. But unfortunately Mr. Carr’s friends were faster runners and they ran away from the scene leaving him all by himself. Needless to say he was taken into custody. A search of Mr. Carr turned up the victim’s wallet, some cash and a firearm. Mr. Carr was charged with Robbery with a  Dangerous Weapon, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon and Second Degree Kidnapping. Mr. Carr is still in jail under a $505,000 bond. The car was towed.
