May 21st, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Last Thursday,  the Cumberland Police responded to a reported breaking and entering at the old Sacred Heart Hospital complex, currently owned by the Allegany County Board of Education. Initial responding Officers discovered that unknown suspects had broken a window to gain entry to the building. Investigators with the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit (C3I) were requested and are conducting follow-up investigation into the incident. A review of video surveillance has led to the identity of four suspects who can be seen walking through different parts of the building. Further interviews led to the identity of a fifth suspect who had also entered the building.  Investigation has determined that the suspects removed a single fire extinguisher and several other miscellaneous items, including old blueprints, schematic drawings, floor plans, specimen collection bottles, and hospital signs. Nothing else was taken or removed from the building.

            As a result, the two adults and three juveniles who entered the building are being charged with one count each of 2nd Degree Burglary, Theft, and Destruction of Property.

            The two adults charged are 18 year old John-Michael Fraley, of Cumberland, and 18 year old Jonathan Edward Urgiles, of Cumberland. Both were served with a criminal summons and released pending a future court appearance.


            The three 17 year old juveniles, all from Cumberland, have also been charged and have had their cases referred to the Department of Juvenile Justice for further proceedings.
