3 charged in 19 burglaries across Adams County

Posted: Updated:

Three Gettysburg men have been charged for their alleged roles in a burglary ring that stole more than $130,000 in property from 19 homes across Adams County since April, according to police.

Carroll Valley police said Robert Voitek, 18; Japheth Miles, 22; and Arik White, 21, made off with electronics, jewelry, cash and guns from homes in the borough and in the townships of Butler, Cumberland, Hamiltonban, Liberty, Straban, Tyrone and Union.

Police believe Voitek had a role in 16 of the burglaries, while White is responsible for 14 incidents and Miles acted with White during two of the crimes.

The three men were initially arrested Nov. 13 in Conewago Township while fleeing a burglary in Carroll County, Maryland, police said in a news release.

Investigators eventually searched their Gettysburg home and found numerous items that had been reported stolen during the various burglaries, police said.

Carroll Valley Police Chief Richard Hileman said the arrests clear most of the open burglary cases in his borough, as well as a number from around the county.

He said more arrests are coming.
