E. GREENVILLE, Pa. - A Montgomery County man is facing burglary charges after he was allegedly caught on video surveillance breaking into an East Greenville home.
Borough police charged Michael Sewak, of West Broad Street in Telford, with burglary, theft and conspiracy in connection to the August break-in. The 30-year-old was already in Montgomery County jail and is waiting to be arraigned on the newest set of charges.
The victim reported to police that she returned to her Cherry Street home after vacation on Aug. 25 to find that someone forced their way into her home, according to a news release from police. Several items, including jewelry were missing. Police said the items were valued at roughly $17,000.
Investigators said they discovered video surveillance that allegedly captured Sewak and an unidentified woman on the victim's property.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Sewak, who is already in jail facing simple assault, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and harassment charges filed by Telford police on Sept. 15. He failed to post $25,000 bail in that case and is awaiting a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 2.
