Maryland man, 28, sought in thefts

Spotsylvania County authorities are looking for a Maryland man suspected in multiple thefts of vehicles and other items dating back to at least 2009.

Taurian Devon Miller, 28, of Prince George's County, Md., is charged in Spotsylvania with grand larceny, credit card theft and forgery, sheriff's Capt. Mike Harvey said.

Miller is also suspected in multiple other thefts along the Interstate 95 corridor, including in Stafford and Fairfax counties in Virginia and in some Maryland localities.

Spotsylvania's investigation of Miller began in June with the thefts of a truck from the Residence Inn-Marriott behind Spotsylvania Towne Centre and a U-Haul trailer loaded with an all-terrain vehicle from the Comfort Inn in the Massaponax area.

Spotsylvania Detective D.R. Reid identified Miller as a suspect after a surveillance camera caught him using a victim's credit card in Seat Pleasant, Md., Harvey said.

Harvey said Miller has no known ties to the Fredericksburg area, "other than apparently deciding it's a good place to steal."

Reid and Prince George's police later searched Miller's home and recovered items linking Miller to multiple thefts, including an ATV stolen in Stafford in 2009.

The Stafford and Fairfax sheriff's offices as well as the Fredericksburg and Prince George's police departments assisted in the case, Harvey said. The investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected.
