Man accused of stealing beer

A Cambria County man faces felony burglary and criminal trespassing charges after allegedly stealing a can of beer from a neighbor’s home.

Workers at the West Carroll Township home told Carrolltown police they saw Bret Shaner, 20, enter the building on July 2 and take the beverage from the basement after being told not to do so.

Shaner is to be sentenced on July 21 for another felony theft charge. Shaner was accused of taking a firearm from a neighboring home in February and pleaded guilty to felony theft by unlawful taking last month.

Shaner also faces three misdemeanor charges in relation to the alleged beer burglary. Bail was set at $50,000 unsecured. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 15 before Magisterial District Judge Michael Zungali.
