UNIONTOWN, Pa. - A Uniontown man is facing burglary charges after police said he broke into his children’s home and stole several things, including Christmas presents.
Police said Amanda Miller came home about 5 p.m. Friday and saw Myron Rose, 33, running from her Cinder Road home carrying a large bag.
Channel 11’s Courtney Brennan reported Miller was able to identify Rose because he is her ex-boyfriend and the father of two of her three children.
Miller alerted police and officers arrested Rose a few days later. Inside the bag detectives said they found electronics, jewelry and several Christmas presents.
“We’ll never get that stuff back,” the children’s great-grandmother said about the Christmas gifts.
Police told Brennan that Rose broke into the mobile home by climbing underneath and digging a hole through the floor.
“What kind of person would make a hole in the floor and break in a house to steal his own kids’ Christmas presents?” the great-grandmother said.
Rose is facing burglary, criminal trespassing, theft by unlawful taking and criminal mischief charges. He remains in jail on $50,000 bond.
“When the guys down at the prison find out what he did, they don’t take kindly to people who steal from kids,” the great-grandmother said.
He faces a preliminary hearing on Dec. 19.
