One Jailed In Burglary

A 20-year- old McConnellsburg man was remanded to the Franklin County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail Sunday in connection with a break-in at a Todd Township residence. Caleb Miller Koons was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Devin Horne on charges of burglary, criminal trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property, unsworn falsification and criminal mischief.

Pennsylvania State Police at the McConnellsburg barracks reported Koons allegedly entered a residence located at 8 Hillside Estates, McConnellsburg, on Thursday, November 3, through an open window. Once inside, Koons is accused of stealing a camouflage crossbow belonging to a 38-year-old man from Chambersburg. The bow, which was valued at $175, was then sold to a Needmore resident.

During an interview with Koons at the McConnellsburg substation, the man also confessed to stealing a Kodak Easy Share camera while breaking into the same home during the last week of October. The camera belongs to a 36-year-old Mc- Connellsburg man and was valued at $ 350. It was pawned in Hagerstown, Md., for $15.
