Three men were arrested earlier this week for a burglary at a Monroe County residence.
Pocono Mountain Regional police said about 1:38 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, they received a call from a neighbor of 115 Skyline Drive, Tunkhannock Township, that three males had entered the home and it appeared they had broken into the residence.
The witness also stated they observed the three exit the residence carrying items and placing them at the edge of the property. The caller also provided a description of the three.
Responding officers located the three males matching the description a short distance from the scene. One of the males attempted to flee on foot.
All were taken into custody and identified as Derrick Moris, 23, of New York City, N.Y., Jermaine Ringler, 23, of Blakeslee, and Brian Paul Rodriquez, 22, of Stroudsburg.
The three were interviewed and then charged. They were charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft, receiving stolen property, criminal mischief, and criminal conspiracy to commit burglary, theft and receiving stolen property. In addition, Rodriguez was also charged with burglary and criminal trespass for entering the same residence on Feb. 1.
The three were arraigned before District Judge Michael Muth, of East Stroudsburg. Bail was set at $20,000 each for Morris and Rodriquez, and $10,000 for Ringler. The three could not post bail and were committed to the county prison in Snydersville.
A preliminary hearing is tentatively set for April 4 at 10 a.m. before DJ Richard Claypool, of Pocono Pines.
