Arrest Made in Burger King Robbery

January 20th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

On Friday, 01/20/2012, Investigators with the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit (C3I) arrested 21 year old Llany Vega, Jr., who was wanted in connection with a breaking and entering which occurred at the Burger King in Frostburg.

On 12/12/2011, at approximately 4:10 AM, the Frostburg Police responded to the Burger King in Frostburg after the General Manager, who had arrived at work minutes before, discovered that the business had been broken into. It was determined that the suspect(s) had entered the business through the roof of the building. The suspect(s) disabled the surveillance camera system and made their way to the office where they were able to gain access to the safe and remove an undisclosed sum of cash before fleeing the scene. In addition, the suspect(s) removed the entire surveillance system’s recorder, in an apparent attempt to prevent identification.

C3I was contacted and requested to assist in the investigation. The scene was processed by an Evidence Collection Technician with the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division.

C3I Investigators conducted numerous interviews. Based on information obtained during those interviews, evidence collected at the scene, and elsewhere, Investigators were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Vega, a former employee of the business.

Vega, who surrendered himself when notified of the warrant for his arrest, was charged with Burglary, Theft, and Malicious Destruction of Property. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance. He was released on personal recognizance, and is free, pending his next court appearance.

C3I Investigators have identified an accomplice. Future charges are pending and the investigation is continuing.
