Two charged in burglaries of gas drilling company
Two Bradford County men have been charged in a series of burglaries over the past month at T3 Energy Services on U.S. Route 220 in Ulster Township, in which gas well equipment valued at between $92,000 to $128,500 was stolen, police said.
The items stolen included valves, casing heads, casing spools, and tree caps, state police at Towanda reported.
Charged in the burglaries were 30-year-old Kyle Adam Rudloff of Sayre and 21-year-old Craig Donald Callear of Athens RR2.
State police said they searched a vehicle that Rudloff and Callear used in the burglaries and found two syringes with needles in the vehicle, as well as a substance in the glove box that field tested positive for heroin.
The two were both charged with five counts of burglary, five counts of theft by unlawful taking or disposition, one count of receiving stolen property, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
Callear told the police that he and Rudloff had loaded items from T3 Energy Services into a pickup truck approximately five times over the past two weeks, and had then sold the items as scrap metal to Sutton's Scrap Yard in Athens Township, according to a criminal complaint filed in Towanda District Court.
Callear said they made approximately five trips to Sutton's Scrap Yard, and were paid approximately $250 to $300 each time for the scrap metal, according to the complaint.
Both men were arraigned on Monday by Wysox Magisterial District Judge Fred Wheaton, who ordered them incarcerated the Bradford County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail each.
