Man, 24, accused of stealing dog, kitchen utensils from Moon Twp. apartment



MOON, Pa. - Police in Moon Township arrested a 24-year-old man accused of breaking into an apartment building on Friday and stealing kitchen utensils and a dog.

According to the police report, Garrett Stauber broke into an apartment on Bridle Trail. Police said he took a kitchen knife and potato peeler and then fled with the resident’s dog.

"That's completely weird. That's completely uncalled for," said witness Joseph Sarkis.

Authorities said Stauber appeared drunk after he left the apartment and was confronted by a neighbor. Stauber and the neighbor briefly fought before Stauber was able to get away, the report said.

Investigators said they followed a footprint trail to a nearby apartment where Stauber was staying.

 "They (police) knocked on a door and found a gentleman sitting on the sofa without a shirt on," said Capt. Greg Seamon of Moon Township police.

He was arrested and charged with simple assault and burglary.

The victim told Channel 11’s Brandon Hudson that they’ve since moved out of the apartment.
