HAGERSTOWN — Three men, two of them being held in Franklin County, Pa., have been charged by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in a series of burglaries and thefts.

Ashton Lee Frisby, 19, and Devon Lee Frisby, 20, both of 838 W. Washington St., Hagerstown, and 21-year-old William Koreem Becton Hardison, of 308 1/2 Jonathan St., Hagerstown, were charged with four counts each of first-degree burglary and malicious destruction of property; three counts each of fourth-degree burglary and theft; and additional criminal conspiracy counts, police said.

The three men are accused of breaking into several residences between Dec. 17 and Thursday, stealing jewelry, cash and electronics valued at about $14,000, police said. They also are accused of stealing delivered packages from porches at three homes, police said.

Hardison was being held at the Washington County Detention Center, a jail spokesman said Tuesday night.

The press release from the sheriff’s office said Devon Frisby is at the Franklin County Jail on unrelated charges, and Ashton Frisby was found in Pennsylvania and also held at the Franklin County Jail. Both were still incarcerated Tuesday night, a jail spokesman said.

Devon Frisby was arrested Sunday morning by Pennsylvania State Police on a warrant issued by Hagerstown police charging him in the attempted robbery Friday of Second Chance Bail Bonds, 48 E. Franklin St., Hagerstown, according to Hagerstown police.

In that incident, two men wearing bandannas over their faces entered the business and demanded cash, Hagerstown police said. One man pulled a silver revolver on an employee, who told the pair there was no money in the office, police said, and the two men fled when they heard a siren.
