OCEAN CITY, Md.- The Ocean City Police Department has arrested an Ocean City man after tying him to a series of thefts from vehicles and a burglary that took place in the Montego Bay area between December 10th and 13th.

Police said that on December 10, 2014, Ocean City officers responded to three separate locations in the Montego Bay area in reference to thefts from motor vehicles. Jewelry, electronics and other miscellaneous items with an estimated total value of over $3,800 were stolen from the vehicles, police said. Later that week, officers responded to a report of another burglary in the Montego Bay area where multiple electronics with a total value of approximately $500 were taken.

Working with the community, police said they quickly identified a suspect in a chain of thefts from parked vehicles in Montego Bay. Subsequently on December 18, detectives located the suspect, Matthew W. Gruber, 30, of Ocean City, and took him into custody. During the arrest, officers said they recovered jewelry reported stolen from the vehicles.

According to police, a search and seizure warrant was served a short time later on Gruber's residence where detectives found most of the items stolen the week before. Additionally detectives located items taken during a first degree burglary of a private home in Montego Bay.

Detectives have charged Gruber with breaking and entering, two counts of theft less than $1,000, theft less than $10,000 and multiple other theft charges. Gruber was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and has been transferred to the Worcester County Jail on $75,000 bond.

Police are searching for further victims associated with additional property recovered from Gruber and believed to be stolen. Any citizens that believe they may have been a victim of theft are asked to contact Detective Carl Perry at 410-520-5439 or cperry@oceancitymd.gov.
