Corriganville residents charged in Frostburg residential burglary

CUMBERLAND — Two Corriganville residents were arrested Thursday in connection with a burglary that occurred in Frostburg on Monday night, according to the C3I Unit.

Justin Tyler Andrews, 23, and Lacey Jean Getson, 21, were charged with burglary and theft following arrest by members of the C3I Warrant/Fugitive Unit.

Andrews was jailed without bond and Getson was jailed on $35,000 bond at the Allegany County Detention Center.

The Frostburg Police Department responded to a private residence on Hawthorne Drive on Monday at about 11:40 p.m. after being contacted by a witness about a possible burglary. The witness saw a suspicious vehicle parked in a neighbor’s driveway and a male suspect run from the residence and get into the vehicle, which was being driven by a female.

While the officer was interviewing the witness, the homeowner arrived and explained that he had left for just a short period of time. The owner discovered that someone had been in the residence, opened drawers and had strewn personal papers around the bedroom, apparently looking for items of value.

The victim later determined that an antique rifle was missing and gave police a description of the gun.

The witness provided a description of the vehicle, the male suspect, and a possible identity of the female suspect. C3I investigators interviewed several witnesses and were able to obtain a search warrant for the suspect’s residence.

Maryland State Police assisted with the search. As a result, information was obtained that the rifle had been thrown out. It was recovered later where it had been discarded by the suspects.

Warrants were then obtained for the arrests.
