MADISON — Police have arrested four Florida men they say are responsible for a series of auto burglaries at a park.

Kendarius Denard Hope, 29, of Fort Lauderdale; Malik Breyon Hope, 18, of West Park; Trayvon Anthony Key, 20, of Dania Beach; and Clifton Oneal Robinson, 28, of Plantation all remain behind bars at the Madison County Detention Center on numerous charges. The charges stem from both Madison and Ridgeland and range from possession of paraphernalia to conspiracy and accessory after the fact.

Police responded to four auto burglaries on Nov. 18 where windows had been broken out of vehicles and purses were stolen.

Investigators began working with other metro law enforcement agencies, including the Flowood Police Department and Ridgeland Police Department to zone in on a suspect. From there, police say they were able to find a vehicle and tag number believed to be used by the suspects.

Madison Police say 10 days after the initial burglaries, stolen checks were being cashed at local banks “using the identities of other victims from the burglaries.”

Police initially arrested the suspects on drug paraphernalia charges and later charged Robinson and Malik with four counts of auto burglary. Kendarius and Tryavon were only charged with accessory after the fact.

The conspiracy charges, police say, are for the crime of uttering forgery with regard to the stolen checks.

Police said in a release that additional charges in other jurisdictions are “anticipated.”
