Sayre man charged in two additional burglaries
A Sayre man recently charged with attempting to break into two Valley businesses has been charged with the burglaries of two additional offices.
Kyle Adam Rudloff, 21, was arraigned Tuesday on charges filed by Sayre borough police in connection with the September burglaries of Hughes Notary Service and the Kinchey Law Office, according to criminal affidavits filed by police with Magisterial District Judge Michael Shaw's office.
Police charged Rudloff with burglary, criminal trespassing and receiving stolen property in connection with the Sept. 21 burglary of the South Lehigh Avenue notary service.
Rudloff was also charged with burglary and criminal trespassing in the burglary of the South Keystone Avenue law office, which office employees reported Sept. 24, police said.
According to police, Rudloff pushed in an air conditioning unit located in a south side window to gain access to the Hughes Notary Service building. He then went through desk drawers and file cabinets and removed a cash box containing between $150 and $200, according to police.
Police said Rudloff also broke into the Kinchey Law Office by pushing in a window-mounted air conditioning unit and went through desk drawers and file cabinets. However, employees said nothing appeared to be missing from the office, according to police.
Police said officers located the cash box belonging to Hughes Notary Service Oct. 3 after obtaining a search warrant for Rudloff's residence following his arrest in connection with an attempted burglary of the Keystone Sunoco on North Keystone Avenue. About 30 pennies, a key, a silver folding pocket knife and two silver spoons with residue were in the cash box when police found it, police said.
Rudloff admitted to breaking into Hughes Notary Service during an Oct. 10 interview with police, according to police.
Rudloff was arraigned last week on charges of burglary and criminal trespassing for breaking into the Foster Law Office on Elmira Street in Athens Township, where police said he stole $113 in cash and two laptop computers. He was also arraigned on charges of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property from Sayre borough police for cashing a paycheck not written out to him.
Rudloff has been incarcerated in the Bradford County Jail since his Oct. 3 arraignment on charges of attempted burglary, attempted theft by unlawful taking, loitering and prowling at night time and receiving stolen property in the attempted Sunoco break-in. His bail, originally set at $100,000, was increased by $10,000 following last week's arraignments and another $2,000 Tuesday.
Rudloff's preliminary hearing, scheduled for Tuesday, was continued to Nov. 16 for all five incidents, according to court information.
