Baltimore Homicide Suspect in Custody After Fleeing Fraud Investigation



Lower Allen Township Police arrested a Baltimore County, MD homicide suspect following his
flight from a fraud investigation at the Camp Hill Walmart.
Officers were dispatched to an active fraud involving subjects using stolen credit card information to
purchase iTunes gift cards, a felony in progress. Officers arrived on scene as the suspects were
leaving. The suspect vehicle was boxed in on the parking lot roadways and fled across a grass rightaway
beside the store.
Officers attempted to catch the vehicle, which fled to the nearby Rossmoyne Manor development.
The development exits were blocked as other officers searched the development for the vehicle. The
vehicle was located, unoccupied, in the development, having crashed into a utility pole. Arriving
officers spotted one of the subjects as he fled out of the development on foot.
Officers from several surrounding departments, including Upper Allen, Camp Hill, and Hampden,
along with K9 resources from Silver Spring and East Pennsboro and a Pennsylvania State Police
helicopter set up a perimeter and searched the area for the suspects. One suspect, Christopher
Nicholas Miller, 27, of Riverdale Maryland, was apprehended. Miller, it was discovered, had a
warrant for homicide out of Baltimore County. Miller is charged with two felonies and 8
misdemeanors from this incident with the possibility of additional charges to follow.
The other two subjects are being sought. They were last seen on foot fleeing the industrial area to
the south of the neighborhood area. A thorough search, including the use of thermal imaging from
the helicopter was not fruitful. By 8:15 pm, it was determined that the subjects were likely no longer

in the area.
Security video is being reviewed in an attempt to identify the other two subjects. Photographs will
be released once quality images are obtained. Investigators have a lead on the identity of one of the
other two subjects, but cannot release that information until the subject’s identity can be verified.
At least a dozen credit cards with fraudulent or stolen account information on them were recovered
in the investigation, along with several hundred dollars in iTunes and Walmart gift cards. The rental
car that was used in the incident has been impounded and is awaiting the execution of a search
warrant. Several phones were seized in the incident and will also be subjected to searches.
Investigation revealed that these same subjects engaged in the same conduct the day before this
