A Fayette County man, who is already jailed with his fiancee in a string of area burglaries in the spring, was charged Wednesday with separate break-ins in Bear Rocks that netted $35,000 worth of items.

Daniel Henry Ward, 25, of Rockpool Road, Acme, is charged with entering two homes on Bethann Road between May 31 and June 7, and taking multiple items including a pickup truck, according to Trooper James Pierce of Uniontown.,

Ward is accused of forcibly entering the Raymond Mackey residence at 113 Bethann Road and stealing a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado truck, jewelry, firearms, tools, televisions and bicycles.

The truck was later recovered in the Connellsville area on June 4, Pierce reported.

Ward is accused of stealing multiple items belonging to Paul Danko Jr. of 115 Bethann Road. Ward will be arraigned before Connellsville District Judge Ronald Haggerty.

Some of the items Ward is accused of taking from Mackey's residence were recovered at Danko's house. One firearm and a television owned by Mackey were recovered from a third house along Horseshoe Bend Road. Ward was charged last June with breaking into residences along Horseshoe Bend Road in Bullskin Township.

Ward and his girlfriend, Sommer Louise Inks, 27, of 50 First St., German Township, are awaiting trial in the burglaries on Horseshoe Bend Road.

Police said they found other stolen items and personal items owned by Inks in a wooded area near a Horseshoe Bend Road home last June.

According to court documents, Ward and Inks are each being held on a $15,000 bond.

Ward will be arraigned on the most recent charges of burglary, theft, criminal mischief and receiving stolen property at a later date, Pierce said.
