An Anne Arundel County officer has been arrested and charged with theft after police said he stole firearms while responding to a death in a Maryland home.

Cpl. Jacob Miskill with the Anne Arundel County Police Department was among several officers who had investigated a report of an unattended death in the 1600 block of Wall Drive in Pasadena on April 27, the agency said in a news release.

On Friday, July 31, police received information that Miskill — a five-year veteran of the department — may have stolen firearms and other property from the residence over three months ago.

Following an internal investigation, police obtained and carried out a search-and-seizure warrant on Miskill’s home this weekend, where he was then taken into custody.

Miskill faces charges of first-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, theft between $1,500 and $25,000, scheming to commit theft between $1,500 and $25,000, and misconduct in office, police said.
