Man Arrested In OC Burglary String

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - After a nine month multi-burglary investigation, Ocean City Police have arrested two suspects.  

Police developed information from evidence obtained at several crime scenes and enlisted the assistance of the Montego Bay Neighborhood Watch Association.

20 year-old Alexander George Ellis of Ocean City was arrested and charged for one of the seven burglaries in June 2012.  Ellis pled guilty to that crime and was later released after serving his sentence. During this time, the investigation into the remaining unsolved cases continued.

OCPD investigators began receiving analysis of forensic evidence obtained at several of the burglary scenes throughout the past several months. As a result of the forensic analysis, along with other evidence, police have charged Ellis with the remaining six unsolved burglaries.
