JOPPA, MD – Detectives with the Harford County Sherif’s Office have arrested three individuals in connection with 12 commercial burglaries and one attempted burglary that occurred throughout Harford County between July 21 and August 16, 2019.
As a result of a series of commercial burglaries, deputies increased patrols near local businesses, particularly snowball stands and crab shacks, the primary target of the suspects.
Detectives were able to determine that all incidents were connected to the same suspects and suspect vehicle.
On August 16, officers responded to the Blue Crab House in the 3500-block of Ady Road in Street for a report of a commercial burglary alarm. Upon arrival, deputies found that the suspects had already fled the area.
Authorities were later able to locate a suspect vehicle and conduct a traffic stop. At the time of the traffic stop, three individuals were in the vehicle. They are identified as Jessica Marie Rudacille, 30; Jonathon Greer, 26; and Matthew Aaron White, 30. All three were arrested.
Rudacille was charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree burglary and released on her own recognizance.

They are currently being held at the Harford County Detention Center without bail.
