Andrae John Wilford Jr.


The Frederick County Sheriff's Office arrested a man they suspect of breaking into cars over a one-week period late last month.

The thefts were reported between Nov. 22 and Nov. 27 in neighborhoods along Ballenger Creek Pike, according to a news release.

After identifying Andrae John Wilford Jr., 20, of Frederick, as a suspect, members of the sheriff's office Pro-Active Criminal Enforcement (PACE) team saw him in the act early on Nov. 28, according to the release.

Affected neighborhoods included Ballenger Run, Farmbrook, Camden Clearbrook Apartments and Hannover.

Wilford was charged with rogue and vagabond, credit card theft and using a stolen credit card. Wilford had also been charged with theft in September, according to electronic court records.

The Frederick County Sheriff's Office urged residents to remove valuables from their cars and keep cars locked at all times. 

Anyone with more information that may be related to this case can contact Detective Bryce McGuire at 301-600-3934.

Yea sure...delete my initial comment! Cuz u know it’s true!


And excuse my grammar. Stupid autocorrect!


Why does FNP pick and choose what stories can be commented on??? That stupid pedophile who committed suicide in jail...couldn’t comment on that store. But this story (note the suspect is black) you can commend on. How convenient!!!!! Well since I couldn’t comment on that story, I’ll say it here. GOOD! IM GLAD THAT SICK PEDOPHILE IS DEAD! One last fool to feed! Messing with children....SMFH! FNP, either disable comments for ALL stories and enable for all! Stop only allowing comments for stories covering black suspects!


(1) The alleged pedophile was charged, not yet convicted and (2) dead, which means local innocent family members probably already grieving, do not need more to bear. Piling on to vent may be the impulse. What purpose is served.


I pedophile's death should be celebrated, not grieved. I don't want my tax dollars funding a worthless life. Stop disabling comments on certain posts you corrupt scumbags.


Yeah- this is a trend. I would add "not white suspects". Also, always provide a picture. If you are too lazy to do that (much like the FNP is about collecting information on both sides of the story) stop calling yourself a newspaper and start calling yourself "something to line the bottom of a birdcage".
