Details of the case:

On June 13 around 3:00 p.m., DuBois-based State Police were called to Wayne Road Storage in Winslow Township for a burglary in progress.

According to police, it was reported by the victim – a known Reynoldsville man – that a white male in his 20s was in his storage unit. The victim said his lock had been cut off and another lock put on the unit.

Police say that Michaud allegedly removed items from the victim’s unit, No. 10, and placed them in unit No. 9, one rented by Michaud’s family.

Several items, including a receipt with the victim’s name on it, were recovered from unit No. 9, according to police.

On Tuesday, June 20, an arrest warrant was issued for Michaud, and he was taken into custody later that day.

Sykesville Woman Arrested for Hindering Apprehension of Michaud

DuBois-based State Police say 18-year-old Felicity Lucille Fye, of Sykesville, allegedly lied to law enforcement officials about the whereabouts of James Michaud.

When they first interviewed Fye at 6:00 p.m. on July 20, she said that she had not seen Michaud since the day before. At 9:30 p.m., police returned to where Fye lived with her mother on Grant Street. Fye said she did not know where Michaud was.

Police then received permission to search the residence, and they found Michaud hiding in the bathroom. Michaud was arrested and charged with burglary and other offenses.

Fye was arraigned at 3:00 p.m. on June 21 on Hindering Apprehension-Prosecution/Harbor Or Conceal, a third-degree felony.

She is currently free on $10,000.00 unsecured bail.

Fye’s preliminary hearing was waived for court.

Her case is working its way through the Jefferson County Court of Common Pleas.
