One Arrest, Warrant Issued in Theft of Calf

Baltimore County Police have arrested one woman and issued a warrant for another in the overnight theft of a calf from Braglio Farms in Woodstock back in April.

Police were called to the farm in the 3300 block of Hernwood Road, 21163 around 10 a.m. on April 22 after the owners discovered the 3-month-old calf they kept as a pet, Milly, was missing. The owners began to conduct their own internet and social media research and discovered photos of two women who were trespassing on their property and petting their cows just two days prior to the theft. During that incident the owners obtained the vehicle information for the car the two women left in after they were escorted off of the property. 

Police began investigating the two women, identified as Jennifer Lauren Sully (44) and Erika Lynn Wilkinson (19), and discovered photos of the stolen calf posted to Wilkinson's social media accounts and to a 'Life with Pigs' Facebook page in which Wilkinson was tagged. 'Life with Pigs' identifies itself as a privately owned and operated non-profit animal sanctuary in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The investigation confirmed that the stolen calf was located at the Life with Pigs farm and on May 7 detectives responded to the farm with officers from James City County Police with a search and seizure warrant for the stolen calf, which was subsequently returned to the owner. During the service of the warrant the owner of Life with Pigs farm gave false information as to how he came into possession of the calf, then admitted he was given the calf by Jennifer Sully.

Jennifer Lauren Sully of the 3500 block of Buena Vista Avenue, 21211, was arrested on a warrant Monday, May 27, and now faces multiple burglary and theft charges. She has since posted a $10,000 unsecured personal bond after an initial bail hearing.

A warrant for Erika Lynn Wilkinson with a last-known address in the 8100 block of Strawberry Lane in Falls Church, Virginia has also been obtained by BCoPD detectives investigating this case. Police have not yet located Wilkinson and are asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to call 9-1-1.

The Baltimore County Police Animal Abuse Team initiated an investigation into allegations of animal abuse against Braglio Farms stemming from this theft investigation. They, along with Baltimore County Animal Services, have found no evidence of abuse or neglect of any animal on the farm. This case remains under active investigation as additional information surrounding the theft of the calf continues to be uncovered.
