Pillowcase Burglars Nabbed in Marion County Traffic Stop
By Terry Witt
Senior Staff Writer
Detectives from six law enforcement agencies
combined forces Monday to arrest a husband and
wife who committed 60 residential burglaries across
North Central Florida, including Levy County.
Darren Decker, 41, and his wife Jessica Baker, 44,
of Ocala were arrested in Marion County last week on charges of grand theft and burglary of a dwelling in connection with a
Sumter County burglary.
Investigators have dubbed the investigation the
Pillowcase Burglaries because the suspects would
grab their stolen booty and place it in pillow cases
as they left the scene.
The suspects forcibly entered the victims’ residences
through either the front or rear door. Once inside,
they stole guns, jewelry and small electronics.
One of the burglaries is believed to have led to a murder in Citrus County and Marion County investigators are attempting to determine if a second murder was committed in that county.
“There is also a murder they are persons-of-interest in, in Marion County,” said Lt. Scott Tummond of the Levy County Sheriff’s Office.
The 10 known burglaries in Levy County occurred mainly in the Morriston and Williston area. Tummond said the number of burglaries associated with the suspects could rise as the investigation continues.
Tummond said investigators found some of the thousands of pieces of stolen merchandise in a storage unit rented by the couple, and in their home and their vehicle.
Detectives from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, Levy County Sheriff’s Office, Sumter County Sheriff’s Office and Williston Police Department participated in the investigation.
The suspects were recently identified after they attempted to sell some of the stolen items on Craig’s List. Surveillance teams from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office and Citrus County Sheriff’s Office began to track the suspects’ movements. Both suspects were arrested in Marion County during a traffic stop following a burglary they committed in Sumter County.
Detectives obtained search warrants for the suspects’ residence in Marion County at 6131 NE 21st Ave., Ocala and for the vehicle they were using. During the search warrants detectives identified the storage unit the couple was using to store stolen items. At the conclusion of the search warrants, investigators were able to link the suspects to burglaries in Marion, Alachua, Sumter, Levy and Citrus counties.
Tummond said evidence shows the two were burglarizing homes as far back as December of 2015. He said evidence has also linked them to the Citrus County murder. Tummond said the suspects probably didn’t know the Citrus County homeowner was home when they began burglarizing the residence.
Tummond added that because the suspects committed crimes in multiple counties, no single agency could have worked this investigation alone.
“When it came to the counties tracking them and trying to figure out who they were, it was a bear,” Tummond said.
What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers is a county wide program designed to help law enforcement solve crimes. This is done by providing the public with a means to phone in tips anonymously and receive rewards for information that leads to arrests.
How does Crime Stoppers work?
It's simple. A caller dials 1-877-349-tips (8477) and without giving his or her name or any personal data, relays information regarding a crime: the whereabouts of a wanted person; or the facts of a crime that has not yet been committed. The caller is given a code number and remains anonymous.
Who is eligible for Crime Stoppers awards?
Any person who directly gives information which leads to the arrest of an adult
or juvenile, or the arrest of a fugitive is eligible for reward.
Law enforcement officers, their immediate families, the perpetrator or co-conspirator of a crime, a fugitive from justice or the immediate family of a Crime Stoppers board member are not eligible for rewards.
What Law enforcement agencies are involved with the Crime Stoppers program?
The Sheriff's Office and all Levy County police departments. The Law Enforcement Program Coordinator works with all Levy County Law Enforcement Agencies, exchanging information regarding Crime Stoppers Cases and tips received.
What can I do?
Take the time to fight crime. Call the toll free tips line and tell us what you know. Crime Stoppers does not use caller ID or record any telephone conversations. If we do not know who you are, you can't be called to court.
Does Crime Stoppers Work?
Absolutely. In Florida alone, based upon Crime Stoppers tips from twelve operating programs from the mid 1980's to 1993: 14,051 arrest have been made; 31,682 cases have been closed; $64 million dollars in stolen property has been recovered; and $380 million dollars worth of narcotics have been seized. All of this has been accomplished with an average reward payment per case solved of $54.89.
Who runs Crime Stoppers?
The Crime Stoppers organization is run by independent civilian Board of Directors representing all areas of Levy County. These people are everyday citizens dedicated to helping law enforcement solve crime in Levy County.
