Takoma Park man charged with burglary

By Washington Post editors

A 24-year-old Takoma Park man has been arrested and charged with first-degree burglary, police said Friday.

Takoma Park police said that on April 30, 2010, at approximately 1:28 a.m., they received a call about a burglary in progress on the 7800 block of Wildwood Drive. When officers arrived, police said, they found Marco Antonio Hernandez inside the residence attempting to escape out through a basement door. The intruder's escape, however, was thwarted by a deadlock on the door.

Police believe Hernandez entered the home through a lower basement window screen, which had been kicked in. Hernandez was arrested and transported to the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit for a hearing before a commissioner.

If Marco was a member of the Tea Party and comitted this crime, you can bet it would have been front page on wapo and cnn.

When it is determined he is an illegeal, it will be swept under the rug, and will probably have a sentence on page 8 of the Post regarding it.

Gotta love the media.
