Burglary suspects captured in Maryland after police chase

Zeb Wilson

Authorities in Maryland on Tuesday caught two men wanted for questioning in a series of burglaries in Shenandoah County.

Montgomery County, Maryland, police arrested Zeb Zachariah Wilson, 27, of 8511 Orkney Grade, Mount Jackson, and Lyndon Michael Wolverton, 24, of 8906 Trapper Lane, Hyattsville, Maryland, said Rick Goodale, public information officer for the agency.

“An officer tried to stop the vehicle they were in,” Goodale said Wednesday. “They failed to stop. A pursuit was initiated. They bailed out of the car and, after a perimeter was set up, they were eventually located and arrested.”

Police used K9 officers and a helicopter to help locate the two men, Goodale said.

Montgomery County police charged Wilson and Wolverton with firearms and theft offenses, according to information from the Maryland online court database. Wilson and Wolverton’s next scheduled appearances in Montgomery County District Court were not available.

The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office issued an alert earlier this month seeking the whereabouts of Wilson and Wolverton for questioning in a series of burglaries. Lt. Chris Baker, of the Sheriff’s Office, did not disclose the number of burglaries nor when and where the incidents occurred, citing the ongoing investigation.

One of the burglaries occurred at a residence in the 10000 block of Senedo Road near Mount Jackson on May 24. A suspect or suspects damaged a door to enter the residence sometime between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. and took approximately 12 handguns, according to information from the Sheriff’s Office.

Felony arrest warrants for possession of stolen property were issued against both suspects in Shenandoah County. No charges against either man had been filed in a Shenandoah County court as of Wednesday.
