September 19th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Times News reports a man who turned himself in to the Frostburg Police Department on Wednesday afternoon has been detained in connection with a robbery at knife point of the First Peoples Federal Credit Union in Short Gap, W.Va., on Sept. 13. Mineral County Sheriff Jeremy Taylor told the Times-News Thursday afternoon that Jeremiah L. Seib, 34, was arrested by Maryland authorities. Seib is listed as an inmate at the Allegany County Detention Center and the Maryland Judiciary Web Search shows he was charged Thursday with assault and escape among other infractions. Frostburg Sgt. George Kroll said that when Seib was being taken to a cruiser for a ride to the Allegany County District Court commissioner he complained that the handcuffs, which held his hands behind his back, were too tight. Search warrants allowed authorities to search Seib’s residence at 32 Linden St. Taylor said a large sum of money was found there. Taylor said he received a call Wednesday evening and went to the Frostburg Police Department where he interviewed Seib. The robbery took place about 10 a.m. After receiving money, the suspect ran from the bank along state Route 28 and entered the woods near Furnace Acres. C3I is in charge of the Maryland portion of the investigation.
