Teen-ager sentenced in Ridge Road armed robbery

A 17-year-old Salisbury juvenile was sentenced to 15 years in prison for his role in a burglary and armed robbery that took place on April 23 on Ridge Road in Salisbury.

Nahmir Tareek Bundy will serve the first five years of the his sentence without the possibility of parole. His total sentence was 30 years, with 15 suspended.

On Sept. 3, Bundy pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary, two counts of armed robbery and the use of a firearm during a crime, according to State’s Attorney Matt Maciarello. Bundy was 16 years of age at the time that he committed this crime, and was was prosecuted and sentenced as an adult offender.

After serving his active period of incarceration, Bundy will serve three years on supervised probation and must pay restitution to the victims as a condition of his probation.

The crime was a topic of community conversation last spring; it occurred in a neighborhood not know for such violence.

In the early morning hours of April 23, Bundy and his accomplices, Darrell Dixon, 19, and Malik Moore, 19, were in the area of Virginia Avenue on bicycles. There they stole a .22-caliber rifle that was stored in an unlocked truck toolbox and went searching cars for valuables on Ridge Road.  While in the driveway of one of the residences, the trio observed some X-Box video games that were visible through the home’s windows.

The teen-agers made entry into the home through a side window carrying with them a baseball bat and the stolen rifle. Once inside, they began stuffing backpacks full of items from the house. Two of the home’s occupants were accosted in their beds at gunpoint by one of the co-defendants.

One of the victims was then held by Bundy at gunpoint on a living room sofa, while the other men continued to fill three backpacks full of the victims’ property.

Dixon pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy to commit a home invasion, first-degree assault and firearm use during a crime. He will be sentenced Nov. 2.

Moore was convicted in the incident in September and is awaiting a sentencing investigation.
