Teens arrested on breaking and entering, larceny charges

FRONT ROYAL —  Local police, alerted by a residential burglar alarm, have  arrested two teens after they allegedly broke into a town apartment and stole a safe.

A Ford Mustang registered to Harmon Michael Sisk, 18, of Linden, was seen fleeing the Blue Ridge Avenue apartments after the time the crime is believed to have been committed on Aug. 31, the criminal complaint states.

The complaint states Sisk told police that he picked up four other people, one of whom was Bailey Russell Lawson, 19, of Front Royal, and drove them to the apartment. Once parked, the complaint states, Sisk said he realized that three of the people wanted to rob the person at the apartment, whom he also knew.

The three individuals walked to the apartment while Sisk and Lawson stayed in the car, Sisk told police. The complaint states that the three ran from the apartment carrying a black bag and something under a jacket, which was later determined to be a safe containing somewhere between $200 and $1,000. The victim told police that marijuana had also been stolen from the residence, and Lawson told police that he received some of the marijuana, the complaint states.

Sisk and Harmon were both charged with breaking and entering and grand larceny, and both remain out on bond. It is unclear at this time if charges have been brought against the other three individuals allegedly involved in the crime. The next hearing is set for Sept. 26 in Warren County General District Court.
