Maryland cop steals gun from dead man’s home while responding


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.
