MARTINSBURG, WV — The U.S. Marshals Service and West Virginia State Police are asking for public assistance as they search for a fugitive wanted in three states.
Police say Ronald Linaburg is wanted in West Virginia on burglary charges, in Virginia on failure to appear in court on grand larceny charges, and in Maryland on theft charges.
Police say Linaburg is charged with breaking into a home in the early morning hours of November 2012 in Berkeley County, W. Va. They say Linaburg and another suspect entered the victims house while they were sleeping, and trapped the victims in their bedrooms while looting the residence.
Both suspects fled the scene before the homeowners could set themselves free.
Officers say Linaburg has committed multiple property crimes in order to obtain money for personal gain and drugs.
