A Palmerton man was jailed on burglary and a related count for an incident in Lehighton.

Police said on April 23 they were called to an apartment building at 256 N. Second St., for a suspicious male walking through the hallways knocking on doors. On scene police found Shane Dease, 39, of 205 Avenue A, inside an apartment he was not permitted to be in. A check with the apartment owner, who was not home at the time, confirmed Dease was not permitted to be in the apartment.

Dease was taken into custody and arraigned on charges of burglary and criminal trespass. He was committed to the county prison in Nesquehoning after failing to post $50,000 straight cash bail.
