Theft suspect sought in Spotsylvania
By KEITH EPPS
Spotsylvania authorities are looking for a Maryland man suspected in multiple thefts of vehicles and other items dating back to at least 2009.
Taurian Devon Miller, 28, of Prince Georges County is charged in Spotsylvania with grand larceny, credit card theft and forgery, Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Harvey said. Miller is also suspected in multiple other thefts along the Interstate 95 corridor, including in Stafford, Fairfax County and Maryland.
Spotsylvania’s investigation of Miller began in June with the thefts of a truck from the Residence Inn-Marriott behind Spotsylvania Towne Centre and a U-haul trailer loaded with an all-terrain vehicle from the Comfort Inn in the Massaponax area.
Detective D.R. Reid identified Miller as a suspect after a surveillance camera caught him using one of the victim’s credit cards in Seat Pleasant, Md., Harvey said.
Harvey said Miller has no known ties to the Fredericksburg area, “other than apparently deciding it’s a good place to steal.”
Reid and Prince Georges, Md., police later searched Miller’s home and recovered items linking Miller to multiple thefts, including an ATV stolen in Stafford in 2009, police said.
The Stafford and Fairfax county sheriff’s offices and the Fredericksburg and Prince Georges police departments assisted in the investigation, Harvey said.
The investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected.
