— AUGUSTA, W.Va. — A

Frostburg man who turned

himself into Maryland

authorities for the robbery

of the First Peoples Community

Federal Credit

Union in Short Gap is now

in a West Virginia jail.

Jeremiah Lincoln Seib,

34, is charged with armed

robbery and is housed in

the Potomac Highlands

Regional Jail in Augusta

on a bond of $25,000.

Authorities allege that

on Sept. 13, Seib, wielding

a knife, robbed the financial

institution on state

Route 28. A few days later,

Seib walked into the Frostburg

Police Department

claiming he was the perpetrator.

During transport to the

Allegany County District

Court commissioner, however,

Seib attempted to

escape and was recaptured

by Frostburg officers.

Until recently, Seib was

incarcerated at the Allegany

County Detention

Center awaiting extradition

to West Virginia.

A preliminary hearing

for Seib took place in Mineral

County Circuit Court

on Thursday.
