Canonsburg man charged after holiday break-in

Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012, 8:54 p.m.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled next month for a Washington County man who is accused of breaking into a Sewickley business Thanksgiving morning.

Sewickley police charged Adrian Foody, 20, of Canonsburg with one count each of criminal trespass, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, underage drinking and three counts of criminal mischief.

Foody's hearing is planned for Jan. 15 in front of District Magistrate Robert Ford.

Police said he attempted to break into Sewickley Traditions, 555 Beaver St., and Oriole Cleaners, 601 Beaver St., by kicking in the glass of the doors, but did not enter.

He is accused of then breaking into the Citgo gas station, 590 Beaver St., at about 4:30 a.m. Nov. 22. When police arrived, they found Foody unconscious in an office.

Police found alcohol inside a backpack across from the gas station.

Shoe prints on the other businesses matched a shoe Foody was wearing, police said.
