Man Charged in Shafer Road Burglary Waives Hearing

The man was charged Dec. 5 with stealing a jewelry box.

A Pittsburgh man who police said burglarized a home on Shafer Road waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Coraopolis District Court

Brian Flesher, 26, is charged with burglary, criminal mischief, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property after police said he kicked down a door on Shafer Road and stole a jewelry box.  

The home's owner and her teenage daughter arrived home on Dec. 5 to find Flesher's vehicle parked in their driveway. The teen snapped a photo of the car's license plate, which police used to track him down near his Brighton Heights home. 

The man fled from Shafer Road following the burglary. 

Flesher was arrested just 45 minutes after the break-in occurred, said Moon Police Chief Leo McCarthy. He sold a piece of jewelry from the box prior to his arrest. 

A formal arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 30, according to court records. 

Flesher is on parole for a burglary in Lawrence County.
