Six charged with home invasions, robberies of Fairfax card games
Six Maryland men face charges for their alleged roles in robbing card players at gunpoint and tying them up during home invasions at private games, police said Thursday.
The men netted cash, jewelry and credit cards from robberies on March 12 and March 22 in Fairfax County, according to police. Police say they believe the groups were targeted but declined to say whether the players were identified through networks of high-stakes poker games arranged at private homes.
"We have very strong suspicions that more people may have been victims but are reluctant to come forward to report it," said Fairfax County police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell.
Some of the victims in the current cases were present at both card games, police said.
One of the accused men impersonated an officer and wore a black T-shirt with "police" on it as he and three others barged into a home at about 1:30 a.m. March 22 in the 9400 block of Cloverdale Court in Burke, police said. The suspects allegedly committed a similar crime in the Centreville area on March 12.
The robbery investigation grew out of a March 22 traffic stop in Rockville where police
found drugs and evidence of other crimes in Fairfax County inside a vehicle. Four men in the vehicle were charged with possession of marijuana by Rockville police.
Fairfax police said Kevin Guzman, 19,, Dalio N. Guzman, 20, and Samie D. Neil, 20 -- all of Silver Spring -- Francis J. Voysest, 19, of Greenbelt and Kadeem W. Haynes, 19, of Rockville,.are charged with robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, wearing a mask and abduction
Hung T. Nguyen, 31, of Germantown, was charged with robbery.
