During a news conference on Friday afternoon, police announced they were able to make the arrest thanks to a tip from a community member. 

According to the Anne Arundel County Police Chief, officers spent 31 hours straight working on this case, trying to put the person responsible behind bars. Now, Augustyniak is charged with murder, armed robbery, theft, use of a firearm in a violent crime and other related charges. 

Police say there is no indication other model homes are and salespeople are in danger, that this was likely an isolated incident. 

“It’s terrible in our county when any murders take place," said new County Executive Steuart Pittman. "Gun violence this year has really shaken Anne Arundel county and we have a lot of work to do”
