ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Authorities in a Maryland county have arrested a police officer on burglary and theft charges involving stolen firearms and other property.

Anne Arundel County police announced in a news release late Saturday that Cpl. Jacob Miskill has been charged with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, theft and misconduct in office.

The five-year veteran of the department has been suspended without pay.

County police say officers were called to a report of an unattended death in April at a house in Pasadena, Maryland. On Friday, the police chief received information that Miskill may have stolen firearms and other property from the house. Police say investigators executed a search warrant at Miskill’s house and arrested him.
