Burglary suspect waives hearing
Saturday, February 23, 2013
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
DUBOIS - A DuBois man accused of participating in the burglary of a Sandy Township church waived his right to a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Patrick Ford yesterday.
David Schurr, 28, of DuBois is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, conspiracy-burglary, theft by unlawful taking, criminal mischief and receiving stolen property.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Jan. 29, Schurr and David Allen, 26, of Grampian cut a screen and pried open a window and entered Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene on Forsyth Road in Sandy Township. Once inside the two ransacked the church and its offices, and pried open a safe. They removed approximately $50 in change and a Sheetz fuel card.
Damage to the safe is estimated at $250 and damage to the window screen is estimated at $250.
On Feb. 3, Sandy Township police interviewed Schurr and he admitted that he and Allen broke into the church looking for money.
Schurr is incarcerated in Clearfield County Jail in lieu of $1,000 straight bail.
Schurr and Allen are accused of participating in a number of burglaries in the area including the break-in at Royer's 219 Auto Sales in Sandy Township on Jan. 28.
