Napoleon Stephon Meredith, 29, is currently jailed in lieu of a $50,000 bond, charged with aggravated burglary. Police say is he one of several people who forced their way to a home, pointed a gun at the homeowner, and told him “We are going to clean you out”, and did just that.
The victim called police to report ‘several people’ had forced their way into his home, assault him, and stolen several items from his residence, at 4 p.m. on March 9th. He says he heard a knock on the front door, and saw someone who resembled a friend, but he wasn’t for sure, so he opened the door, along with another person. He states one of them had been hiding outside of view of the door. The victim was reportedly punched in the face, knocking him onto the couch. That’s when he says Napoleon Meredith pulled a gun, pointed it at him, and said “We are going to clean you out”, and directed the victim to show him where the laptops were.
A third suspect also entered the residence at this point, and he recognized her as his friend, Frances Clinard. The victim says all three suspects then forced him into his bedroom, where they collected his electronics, his wallet, and $1,520 in cash money. They put all the items in a backpack owned by the victim, and fled the location.
The victim told police he was familiar with both Napoleon Meredith and Frances Clinard, neither of who covered their face, and knew exactly who they were, as he had ‘hung out’ with them before.
During an interview, the victim disclosed that he and Napoleon were in an altercation the previous day, and the victim had called police to report the incident. When Napoleon then pulled the gun on the victim during this incident, he reportedly told the victim “You never get the police involved!”
Napoleon Meredith was arrested late Wednesday night, charged with aggravated burglary, and is held on a $50,000 bond. Frances Clinard was arrested on March 21st on this, and many additional other charges, and is held in lieu of an $88,500 bond.
