Man sentenced for Md. restaurant burglary

TAKOMA PARK, Md. (WUSA9) -- A man has been sentenced to 15 years with all but seven years suspended for a burglary in Takoma Park from 2013.

Fifty-five-year-old Darvin Jacobs of Washington D.C. will also be placed on three years of supervised probation for second-degree Burglary of Tony's Restaurant. He pleaded guilty to the charge last week.

The burglary occurred on June 19, 2013, at approximately 1:57 a.m. in the 7600 block of New Hampshire Avenue. Takoma Park police officials say Jacobs smashed the front glass door to the business and pushed it in. Surveillance video showed a thin male, wearing a white baseball cap, white t-shirt and blue jeans, gloves and a blue backpack inside the restaurant. He then fled on foot.

Police collected surveillance video from a neighboring business and the images were distributed to the surrounding police agencies, say Takoma Park police officials. Then, on August 20, 2013, Prince George's County Police arrested Jacobs for a commercial burglary in the 1400 block of University Blvd. They contacted the Takoma Park Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division about Jacobs. A detective then interviewed Jacobs, which led to him being charged for the Takoma Park burglary.
