In January 2010, victim Forrest Sanders reported to MSP Easton that a garage on his property at Black Walnut Point Road, Tilghman Island, had been broken into and someone had stolen numerous tools, hunting and fishing equipment, a new Johnson 25 HP boat motor, and a Craftsman Tiller. Two weeks later, Sanders discovered someone again had broken into his garage and his residence, and Sanders reported missing numerous guns, tools, electronics, and an antique arrow head collection. Trooper First Class Jean McGlynn, Maryland State Police Criminal Investigation Division, Easton Barrack, conducted a check through pawn shop records and discovered the Sears Craftsman Tiller had been pawned in Anne Arundel County by suspect Jason Gilliece. As a result of the investigation, a warrant was issued for Gilliece for 15 charges of Burglary and Theft. On April 23, 2010, Gilliece was arrested and taken to the Talbot County Commissioner where he was held on a $25,000 bond.
