February 11, 2013

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Mountain State Fugitive Task Force is asking for help finding a fugitive wanted in three states.

Ronald Linaburg, 45, is wanted in West Virginia on burglary charges, in Virginia on failure to appear on grand larceny charges and in Maryland for failing to appear on theft charges, according to a news release from the task force.

Linaburg is charged with burglary of a residence that occurred in the early morning hours of November 2012 in Berkeley County, W.Va., according to the release. Linaburg and another person are accused of entering the victims’ home while they were still sleeping, trapping the victims in their bedroom, looting the residence and fleeing before the victims could set themselves free, according to the release.
 
Linaburg has family and friends in Berkeley County and in Virginia, the release stated, and might still frequent Berkeley County, and be assisted by family members.

He is described as 6 feet 1 inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He has brown eyes and brown and gray hair. He has tattoos on his arms and body, the release states.

The task force urges that Linaburg should not be confronted if seen; that law enforcement should be notified. Information may be called into the West Virginia State Police at 304-267-0000 or the Mountain State Fugitive Task Force at 304-267-7179.

The Mountain State Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional unit comprised of U.S. Marshals Service officers as well as members of state, county and local police departments in the Eastern Panhandle.
