Residential Burglary

Incident Date

School Road


Damontae D. Tillman, age 17, Madison
Tillman was arrested for burglary and bail jumping.


While many find it way too early for snow, when it comes to police work, there are considerable benefits to having a little of the white stuff on the ground. Such was the case this morning, when residents on School Road awoke to find their home being burglarized. They saw an intruder run off, and soon discovered a purse and a laptop computer were missing. One of the first officers on scene, discovered fresh tracks with very distinct shoe impressions. Officers followed them, found the stolen purse dumped in a recycling bin, and then spotted the same shoe impressions outside of an apartment building in nearby Kennedy Heights. There they located Damontae D. Tillman, age 17. Tillman told officers it would be "stupid" for him to do this crime as he is currently out of jail on court-ordered electronic monitoring. Officers, in fact, checked where his GPS bracelet had recently been, and learned he was inside the victim's home at the time of the burglary. Since turning 17, and becoming an adult in the eyes of the court, Tillman has been arrested multiple times and is facing numerous charges to include theft, burglary, hit-and-run, and operating a motor vehicle without owner's consent. Add to that, another tentative burglary charge.
