— CUMBERLAND — Two adults and three juveniles have been charged in connection with a recent breaking and entering of the former Sacred Heart Hospital complex on Seton Drive, according to the C3I Unit.

On Thursday, 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. Officers discovered that someone had broken a window to gain entry to the building.

Investigators with the C3I Unit 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.

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 re-moved from the building.

The suspects are being charged with one count each of second-degree burglary, theft and destruction of property.

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

The three juveniles — all 17-year-old Cumberland residents — have also been charged and have had their cases referred to the Department of Juvenile Services for further proceedings.
