2 arrested for 10 burglaries to West Shore homes

Two people have been arrested for at least 10 daylight burglaries at West Shore homes, and the pair may be responsible for similar crimes throughout Cumberland, Dauphin and York counties, according to police.

West Shore Regional police identified the two as Nicholas Lee Malone, 26, of Lemoyne, and Lakyn Marie Checkeye, 22, of Pittsburgh.

Malone and Checkeye were arraigned Friday on 10 counts of burglary for breaking into homes in New Cumberland, Lemoyne, East Pennsboro Township, Hampden Township and Silver Spring Township during March and April.

Each was being held in Cumberland County Prison on $100,000 bail and facing additional charges for other incidents in the area, police said.

According to police, officers from West Shore Regional, Camp Hill and East Pennsboro Township had been watching Malone and Checkeye because they were considered suspects in the burglaries.

Malone and Checkeye were parked in front of a home in the first block of Sunfire Avenue, in the Floribunda housing development in East Pennsboro Township.

When they drove away, a detective checked the home and discovered that it had been burglarized.

Malone and Checkeye were stopped, and property in their vehicle was later determined to have been stolen, police said.
