List of charges against burglary suspect grows

By Joe Beck

WOODSTOCK - The list of charges against a man who authorities believe committed a string of burglaries last fall and early this year has grown to 27 after the latest grand jury indictments in Shenandoah County Circuit Court.

Terry Wayne Siford, 37, of Martinsburg, West Virginia, is now accused of eight burglaries and a variety of other charges including robbery, vandalism, larceny, stealing property with intent to sell and wearing a mask in a prohibited place.

Siford was initially charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of grand larceny after his arrest in early February in Pennsylvania, where he is facing similar charges.

The indictments accuse Siford of burglarizing homes between Sept. 16 and Feb 5. Three of the burglaries in mid-January were committed within a day of each other and two more were committed on Feb. 5, according to the indictment.

Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Paul Ryman said the cases are the same ones reported in the area between Woodstock and Edinburg last fall.

"There are no further pending charges in Shenandoah County," Ryman said, referring to the burglary investigation.

Authorities executed a search warrant Feb. 9 at Siford's home in Martinsburg where they seized items believed to be related to the burglaries in Shenandoah County.

No injuries or weapons were involved in any of the burglaries, although one of the indictments is listed as theft of a firearm. Several victims were home at the time of the burglaries and reported encountering the intruder inside their residences.

Other items listed as stolen in the burglaries include prescription pills, cash, jewelry, dinnerware and other household items.
