A Charleroi man is expected to face trial on multiple charges alleging he burglarized several homes in the borough between June and August.

Jared William Dalton, 20, of 1115 McKean Ave., waived his right to a preliminary hearing Monday on eight counts of receiving stolen property and one count each of criminal trespassing, theft by unlawful taking and burglary.

He was scheduled to face a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Larry Hopkins in Charleroi.

Dalton was sent back to the Washington County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 straight cash bond.

He was arrested Sept. 3.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed by Charleroi Regional Police, Dalton allegedly committed burglaries at Charleroi homes in the 600 to 900 blocks of McKean, Crest, and Fallowfield avenues and Third and 11th streets. He was also accused of an alleged burglary on Liberty Avenue in North Charleroi.
