OCEAN PINES, Md – Authorities say a man wanted on burglary charges was arrested Tuesday after leading police on a brief foot chase through the South Gate area of Ocean Pines.

Detectives with the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation said that following his arrest, 24-year-old Orion Conway, of Berlin, was charged with second-degree burglary and conspiracy burglary, $1,000 to under $10,000 in theft, second-degree assault and malicious destruction of property over $1,000.

Conway stole equipment and power tools from various properties in Worcester County area, according to Cpl. Kyle Clark, the detective in charge of the investigation.

One of Conway's three victims included a U.S. Marshal, according to Clark, who added that all of the victims live in Worcester County. Investigators said there may be additional victims and are asking the public to check all belongings and outdoor equipment.

Maryland State Police, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and the Berlin Police Department had been looking for Conway for approximately two weeks prior to his capture. The Maryland State Apprehension Team and U.S. Marshals made the arrest, according to Clark.

Conway is being held in the Worcester County Jail on $30,000 bond.
