A city man is accused of breaking into an Antis Township garage Friday, court documents stated.
Christian Mich McIntire, 35, was arraigned Saturday by Magisterial District Judge Matthew Dunio after police said he allegedly broke into the property and ignored the homeowner’s request to leave, the criminal complaint stated.
According to police, McIntire allegedly was caught taking items from the garage through live surveillance footage the homeowner’s son was watching.
The son attempted to talk to McIntire, but he allegedly ignored him, the police report stated.
After police arrived, McIntire alleged he purchased the property the day prior through Zillow.
The homeowners testified to police that the Zillow ad was fraudulent and the property was not currently for sale.
Police said they discovered damage to the door handle and deadbolt on the garage, adding that the rear door handle had been removed and damaged.
McIntire faces felony counts of burglary and criminal trespassing, in addition to one misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief, the criminal docket stated.
Unable to post bash bail of $30,000, McIntire is currently confined at Blair County Prison.
He is to appear before Magisterial District Judge Fred B. Miller Aug. 17 for a preliminary hearing.
