Frederick Man Sentenced In Burglary

He will serve his time at the Adult Detention Center.

Frederick, Md. (KM) A 21-year-old Frederick man will  be spending some time at the County Detention Center. Jamyron Hakeen Maiben, was sentenced in Circuit Court on Tuesday to 18-months in jail. He also must complete Project 102 while he’s incarcerated, a drug rehabilitation program.

State’s Attorney Charlie Smith says Maiben broke into a basement apartment on Main Street in Walkersville during the early morning hours of December 19th. A woman who was sleeping was awakened and screamed. The intruder fled. “So the boyfriend, Nicholas Moorey, wakes to find his cash missing, as well as a couple of other items,” he says. “He goes to get his friend, who happens to Jamyron Maiben, to help him find the burglar. And when he was speaking to Maiben, he finds out that he was the one who actually burglarized the house. And he ultimately wound up returning the cash and other items.”

The amount of the cash was $300, according to Smith.

During the course of the investigation, Smith says the victims cooperated, but very reluctantly. “They didn’t want any substantial jail time for their friend. But they recognized that he burglarized this house and stole the cash, and would have never come clean unless he was confronted by his buddy, Mr. Moorey,” says Smith.

“There’s a learning experience, I guess, for Mr. Maiben,” says Smith. “And that is: don’t rob anybody, even your friend.”

Maiben is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday for another burglary last year in Woodsboro, where shots were fired. No one was hurt.
