Matthew Lohr's Hearing Postponed on Charges of Burglarizing a Pine Home

The 29-year-old Mars man is charged with stealing jewelry.

The preliminary hearing for a 29-year-old man charged with burglarizing a Pine Township home was postponed until Oct. 17.

Matthew Lohr, of Mars, was scheduled to appear Wednesday before Magisterial District Judge William K. Wagner.

Lohr is charged with felony counts of burglary, receiving stolen property and theft.

Northern Regional police charged Lohr with the Sept. 13 burglary of a home on Old State Road in Pine, during which jewelry was stolen and pawned at Treasure Chest in Richland Township, according to the criminal complaint.

He also faces multiple charges in Mars and Zelienople.

In the Mars case, 14 drug-related charges and 1 count of recklessly endangering another person were held for court Tuesday at a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Wayne D. Seibel.

Zelienople Police Department also charged Lohr with 58 felony counts burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal trespass. Lohr waived Tuesday’s preliminary hearing on those charges.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Zelienople police, Lohr is charged with stealing baseball cards and jewelery from a home on Emerson Drive in Zelienople on Aug. 30.

Less than a week later, he attempted to sell two of the stolen cards at Baseball Card Castle in Cranberry, the complaint said. He also sold jewlery taken from the home at the Cash For Gold in Shaler, the complaint said.

Mars police charged Lohr with three felony drug charges, 11 misdemeanor drug-related charges and one charge of recklessly endangering another person after police pulled over the car he was driving on June 8.

After a search of the car, police found two needles and five empty stamp bags used to package heroin, the criminal complaint filed by Mars police said. Lohr's girlfriend and baby daughter also were in the car with Lohr when police pulled him over, the complaint said.

In the meantime, Butler County detectives filed charges against Lohr—two felony counts of providing a controlled substance to confined persons.

A Nov. 19 preliminary hearing is scheduled before Magisterial District Judge Peter H. Shaffer.

Lohr is in the Butler County Prison.

Trouble may happen anytime and anywhere. And having a child myself keeps me to worry about their safety when they walk across the road or even when they go to school all by themselves. That's why I always imposed safety and security within my family. I have registered all the member's of my family on a safety mobile device that is easy to access in times of trouble. It is a Panic Button installed on a Smartphone's and it allows us to alert all the member of our family when danger comes. It can also identify the exact location and have the ability to search the address of any family that you wanted to locate. You can browse their other features with this link: http://safetrec.com/
