Two suspects charged in Vale Summit burglary

CUMBERLAND — Two Frostburg men are now awaiting trial in connection with a burglary of a Vale Summit Road residence in November. More than $20,000 in various items were stolen, including firearms, jewelry and laptop computers, according to the C3I Unit.

Derrick James Swick, 32, was charged with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary and theft in connection with the Nov. 21 crime.

Jailed initially on $200,000 bond following his arrest Wednesday, Swick remained in jail Thursday afternoon on bond of $75,000 following review by a district court judge.

On Dec. 27, C3I charged Harold Michael Nicol Jr., 30, with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary in connection with the same incident.

The charges against Nicol were filed after Frostburg Police arrested him in connection with an unrelated matter. At that time, police recovered one of the firearms that was reported stolen from the Vale Summit Road residence. That development led to C3I obtaining a warrant for Nicol’s arrest in connection with the Nov. 21 burglary.

The perpetrators broke the glass of a french door and then removed various items of jewely, electronics, firearms and ammunition from the residence. The investigation initially was conducted by Maryland State Police with follow-up investigation by the C3I Unit.

C3I detectives continued the investigation and developed a second suspect identified as Swick.

Investigators were able to gather enough information to  obtain a search and seizure warrant that was executed Wednesday at a private residence on Pompey Smash Road in Vale Summit.

Police recovered a large amount of the  jewelry, laptop computers and electronics that were reported stolen.

The investigation is continuing by Maryland State Police and C3I.
