CORDOVA, Md.- A Cordova man is facing numerous charges in connection with a series of burglaries that occurred over a four-month period in northern Talbot County. 

The Talbot County Sheriff's Office said the arrest of 29-year-old Nevan Karl Sypniewski stemmed from an investigation into burglaries of homes, garages, and outbuildings between June and last month.

Investigators from the Sheriff’s Office said they were able to develop Sypniewski as a suspect during the month of September. The Sheriff's Office said that during the course of the investigation, a significant amount of property was recovered.  

Sypniewski faces charges of theft from $1,000 to under $10,000 for a June 2 theft. According to the Sheriff's Office, Sypniewski stole cash from a home on Brooks Lane in Cordova where he was an invited guest. He was later released on $10,000 unsecured bond by the District Court Commissioner’s Office.

Sypniewski also faces first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, CDS distribution in connection with a firearm, and theft, for a burglary that occurred on Russ Drive Cordova on Sept. 11.  The investigation revealed that firearms were stolen and likely traded for heroin, authorities said. The Maryland District Court Commissioner’s Office issued a criminal summons and not an arrest warrant for these crimes, according to the Sheriff's Office.  

Sypniewski also faces multiple charges for burglaries of sheds and garages in on Rabbit Hill Road in Easton on June 8, the 11000 block of Chapel Road on June 29, the 31000 block of Bittorf Lane in Cordova on Sept. 3, and the 31000 block of Bishop Drive in Cordova on Aug. 26.  Criminal charges range from second- and fourth-degree burglary and theft less than $1,000 for those crimes. In each of these cases, Maryland District Court Commissioner’s Office issued criminal summons. T

Talbot County Sheriff Joe Gamble said in a statement, “I am extremely proud of the hard work done on this investigation by our investigators and patrol deputies.  We share the concerns our victims and the community that no significant pre-trial bond was placed in this case by the Maryland District Court Commissioner’s Office and that other burglary charges were issued on a criminal summons and not an arrest warrant. The safety of our citizens to be secure in their homes is our highest priority at the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office.  Under Maryland law, police agencies have no authority to set pre-trial bonds. I have included this information to the public so this office continues to remain transparent to the citizens that we are sworn to protect. The Maryland District Court Commissioners can be reached at 410-819-5840.”
