Five Arrested for Partying in Foreclosed Home

Police are still looking for a sixth suspect who used to live in the home.

Five people are charged with trespassing and fourth-degree burglary after they partied in a foreclosed home on Saturday, Jan. 26. One suspect, a former resident of the home, is still at large, police said

Dylan Meksomphone, 20, Diana Do, 19, Julisa Cerna Vera, 20, Jericho Tinio, 20, and a 16-year-old boy entered a vacant home on the unit block of Amy Brent Way in Reisterstown through unknown after a former resident invited them to a party. The former resident invited them to the house, and fled when police arrived at the foreclosed home at 11:30 p.m., according to a police report.

Police are in the process of obtaining a warrant for the former resident's arrest, according to Lt. Stephen Doarnberger, assistant commander of the Baltimore County Police’s Franklin Precinct.

We used to do that all the time up in glyndon. Even painted and fixed electricity in a main street house. It was great, we lived there all summer and the police came dozens of times for various reasons. We didn't hurt anyone. let the kids go, come on!

Was it really necessary to arrest and charge the individuals who were (INVITED) to a party by the former resident with 4th degree burglary and trespassing. It is my speculation that the Invitees knew nothing wrong upon crossing that threshold into the residence as they were invited and on the flip side of the coin, could the police not have erred on the side of giving the young adults a warning, sending them on their way, perhaps only charging the former resident who apparently was the one person who fled the scene knowing he was wrong. Young people often make mistakes, sometimes through no fault of their own and yes it is a learning experience that we all go through in life. Now these young adults have gone through an unforgettable process of being handcuffed, photographed and fingerprinted for what could have been a simple slap on the wrist and which would have allowed our Baltimore’s Finest to use their time on perhaps more important crimes such as Felony's and not misdemeanors which I can only imagine how much time, energy and effort was put forth into this incident/investigation by way of the Incident report which was several pages in length. As if employment is not difficult enough for our young population, these 4 young adults now face the possibility and difficulty of being tarnished in the eyes of future employers as being arrested. Although a misdemeanor in the eyes of the Lawyers, Courts and judges it is a viral conjunctivitis in the eyes of Employers.
