4 arrested in series of Armstrong, Butler burglaries

Pennsylvania State Police arrested four people in connection with a string of residential and commercial burglaries in Armstrong and Butler counties.

Tyson Bargerstock, 28, of Worthington; Tyson Anderson, 26, of Kittanning; Trevor Raible, 28, of Fenelton; and Meghan Snyder, 25, of Butler each is charged with burglary, criminal trespassing by breaking into a structure, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, theft by deception, criminal mischief and six counts of criminal conspiracy.

Snyder and Raible each drew additional charges of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property. Snyder is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police arrested the four on Wednesday after recovering several pieces of jewelry and electronics at various pawn shops, according to Trooper Terry Geibel.

“We tracked them down when they cashed in several items, which we were able to recover,” Geibel said.

Geibel said the four were linked to burglaries at the Harvest Community Church in East Franklin, the Worthington Presbyterian Church, the Burnt Ridge Bow & Gun Club in Cowansville and the Buffalo Valley Sportsmen's Club in Worthington, along with two residential burglaries in West Franklin and Worthington.

Geibel said the four were linked to burglaries in Chicora and Fenelton in Butler County.

“After talking to them, we believe every one of these burglaries were connected,” he said.

District Judge Lewis Stoughton of Chicora committed Bargerstock, Anderson, Raible and Snyder to the Butler County Prison on Thursday, and set bond at $25,000 each.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Tuesday in Stoughton's courtroom.
