Detectives with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division have arrested two men in connection to 12 commercial burglaries and one attempted burglary, that occurred throughout the County between July 21 and August 16, 2019.
As a result of a series of commercial burglaries, deputies with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office placed an increased focus on checking local businesses, particularly snowball stands and crab shacks, the primary target of the suspects. Through investigation, detectives were able to determine all incidents were connected and involved the same two suspects and suspect vehicle. Additionally, detectives with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division, the Special Investigations Division, and deputies assigned to patrol spent numerous investigative hours attempting to locate and identify suspects connected to the burglaries.
On August 16, 2019, deputies responded to the Blue Crab House in the 3500 block of Ady Road in Street for the report of a commercial burglary alarm. Upon arrival, deputies discovered the burglary, but the suspects had already fled the area. A short time later, deputies were able to locate a suspect vehicle and execute a traffic stop. At the time of the traffic stop, three individuals were in the vehicle. They are identified as Jessica Marie Rudacille, 30, Jonathon Greer, 26, and Matthew Aaron White, 30.
All three were arrested. Rudacille was charged with conspiracy to commit 2nd degree burglary and released on her own recognizance by a District Court Commissioner.
