    ARREST MADE| Suspect in Custody after murder at Model Home

    HANOVER, MD (WBFF)-- Anne Arundel County Police announce an arrest in the murder of a sales agent at a model home in Hanover.

    Steven Bernard Wilson, a 33-year-old Sales and Marketing Representative from Annapolis was found dead Wednesday inside the Model Home/Sales Center on Newmanstown Drive in Hanover.

    Police on Friday announced the arrest of 18-year-old Dillon Nicholas Augustyniak.

    On Friday, December 07, 2018 at approximately 12:52 a.m., the Fugitive Apprehension Team assisted by the Baltimore Police Department located Dillon Augustyniak in the 2100 block of Ramsey Street in Baltimore.

    The teen has been charged with murder, theft, armed robbery and firearm charges.

    Police Chief Timothy Altomare says community tips were critical in making the suspect's arrest 31 hours following the slaying. He says robbery was the motive and the crime was random.

    Evidence at the scene indicated the death of Steven Wilson was the result of a homicide according to detectives.

    Friday, police said the victim was shot.

    Police say, "I think impulse met opportunity in this instance." They say real estate agents should be vigilant, but they don't think they are being targeted.

    Augustyniak lives in Jessup, but officers say his home is just through the woods behind the model home.

    In charging documents, police wrote the teen stole Wilson's phone and laptop. Investigators believe he tried to sell the gun he used in the killing.

    Court records show that Augustyniak is being held without bail. The teen has a bail review hearing scheduled for Monday.

    Even though an arrest has been made, police say this is a very active and fluid investigation. Homicide detectives are asking anyone with information to come forward by calling the Anne Arundel County Homicide Unit at 410-222-4731.

    If anyone with information wishes to remain anonymous, they can also contact the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line 410-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers.
