A Mars man charged with stealing jewelry from a Pine Township home is in the Butler County Prison where he faces 73 other charges filed by police in Zelienople and Mars.
Matthew Lohr, 29, is charged with felony counts of burglary, theft and receiving stolen property in the Pine Township incident, according to Northern Regional Police Chief T. Robert Amann.
Zelienople Police also charged Lohr with 58 felony counts of burglary, trespassing and receiving stolen property, according to court documents.
Mars Police charged Lohr with three felony drug charges, 11 misdemeanor drug-related charges and one count of reckless endangerment.
In the Pine case, Lohr is charged with breaking into a home on Old State Road by using a ladder found in the yard to climb into a second-floor window and take several pieces of jewelry, Amann said.
Detective Jeffrey Hoffman later located the jewelry by contacting area pawn shops and returned it to the victim, Amann said.
Lohr is scheduled for an Oct. 10 preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge William K. Wagner.
