Two North Belle Vernon men were charged in connection with a home burglary in Speers.

Charleroi Regional Police charged Anthony John Mavrikas, 26, of 364 May St., with burglary, criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking, and receiving stolen property.

Justin Matthew Marish, 26, of 109B Grant St., was charged with receiving stolen property.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed Wednesday in the office of Magisterial District Justice Larry Hopkins, Jesse Snyder reported to police that several power tools were stolen from the kitchen and basement of his home at 281 Grandview Way in the Mapleview section of Speers.

Snyder reported he discovered the tools were missing on Sept. 25.

Snyder told police he suspected Mavrikas had stolen from him because he let Mavrikas stay in his home until he learned the suspect was allegedly using drugs, according to the affidavit.

Mavrikas allegedly sold some of Snyder's tools at Gem's Quick Cash in Belle Vernon, police said.

Mavrikas and Marish allegedly sold additional tools at Koury's Buy Sell Trade in Monessen, according to the police affidavit.
