State police at Uniontown are seeking tips leading to the arrests of three people involved in separate burglaries and thefts in the county, plus an unidentified suspect who stole a vehicle and the owner of stolen jewelry.

Arrest warrants have been issued for these people:

• Mark Matthew Miller, 25, of Uniontown, who is wanted on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief for allegedly stealing copper and wiring from a vacant residence on North Gallatin Avenue in North Union between Feb. 16 and March 16.

• Brittany Dawn Eaton, 28, of Uniontown, who is charged with receiving stolen property for allegedly selling stolen jewelry at the Cash for Gold Shop in Uniontown on July 25.

• Tyler Charles Swink, 20, of North Versailles, who is wanted on burglary, criminal mischief and theft charges for allegedly stealing $215 in tools from a hunting cabin on Skyline Drive in Wharton between Dec. 24, 2011, and Jan. 9, 2012.

Crime Stoppers said Miller allegedly was involved in a burglary with Amanda Dugan, 28, and Timothy William Miller, 23, both of Uniontown, who are lodged in Fayette County Jail.

State police at Uniontown charged both suspects with burglary, conspiracy, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief. Dugan was lodged in Fayette County Jail on Sept. 25 in lieu of $25,000 bond, and Timothy Miller already was in the jail.

Dugan is scheduled for a preliminary hearing before Wharton District Judge Wendy Dennis on Oct. 16.

Donald Robert Dugan III, 29, of Uniontown allegedly provided Brittany Dawn Eaton with jewelry stolen from a Darwin Avenue residence in South Union.

He waived to court charges of burglary, receiving stolen property and conspiracy. He had been jailed in lieu of $25,000 bond on unrelated charges and is scheduled for arraignment in Fayette County Court on Oct. 17.

State police said Swink was linked to the burglary at the cabin in Wharton when blood found at the scene was later identified as being his.

Police are seeking the owner of a gold bracelet with the name “Patty” on it, which was part of the jewelry stolen on Sept. 25 in the area of Clarendon Avenue in Uniontown.

A female suspect, who was not identified, allegedly tried to hide it when police arrested her on a burglary warrant.

State police are looking for a man who allegedly stole a 1999 black Honda Civic, carbon fiber hood with 17-inch aluminum wheels. The vehicle had been towed to a residence in Lower Oliver No. 3 to have it repaired.

Anyone with information on the suspects or property being sought is asked to contact state police at Uniontown at 724-439-7111 or Fayette Crime Stoppers at 888-404-TIPS.
