August 24th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

On Thursday, investigators with the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit (C3I) arrested 25 year old Jesse James Wilkinson, of Cumberland, and 18 year old Haley Rebecca Self, of Cumberland, in connection with a series of burglaries in the Cumberland area.

The charges are the result of investigation into burglaries first reported to the Maryland State Police and the Cumberland Police in early June of this year. Among the items stolen were firearms, electronics, televisions, jewelry, and coins. The total value of the items reported stolen was over $8000.00.

C3I Investigators obtained a search warrant for a private residence where several of the firearms were recovered. Information was obtained that has led to the recovery of the remaining firearms. Investigators also learned that some of the reported stolen jewelry was pawned at a local pawn shop, and have recovered those items as well.

Wilkinson and Self have been charged with three counts of 1st Degree Burglary and five counts of Theft. They were taken before a District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance, and both are currently being held at the Allegany County Detention Center, without bond, pending their next court appearance.

The investigation is continuing by C3I.
