After a thorough investigation, Troop C Detectives developed suspects, recovered evidence from the scene and were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Carrero, who fled from his home Wednesday when he recognized a law enforcement surveillance vehicle, according to police.

He was later apprehended just north of Stearns Road and taken into custody.

Carrero is being held on $75,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Rockville Superior Court on September 13.

Additional arrest warrants are anticipated, police said, and will be served on the other four suspects involved, according to an arrest report.

Although more arrests are pending, Sgt. Richard Cournoyer of the Mansfield Resident State Trooper's Office told Mansfield-Storrs Patch that residents should not fear for their safety.
