On Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at approximately 7:00 AM Cumberland Police Officers served a search and seizure warrant at a Pine Avenue residence.  The search warrant was issued as a result of an investigation that began in late April 2016.  The incident began from a theft investigation in which Officers gained information that the suspect, Floyd Kitzmiller, was illegally in possession of a firearm.  Information was gained from the Maryland Gun Center that Kitzmiller was prohibited from obtaining or possessing a firearm due to the fact he was convicted of a felony charge of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in 1989.
