• Woman charged with burglary after failed rooftop getaway


    BUTLER, Pa. - A suspected burglar is facing charges after a failed rooftop getaway in Butler County.

    Butler police say Cassandra Welsh, 28, was inside a home on Olive Street when the residents came home.

    "They found the place had been broken into. The actor was still inside, last seen in a bedroom," said Capt. James Hollobaugh. "Officers made entry, could not locate the person."

    Homeowners told police they had never met Welsh, who fled to a secondary roof, where she had nowhere to go.

    "One of our officers actually had to help her down off the roof," Hollobaugh said.

    Welsh is facing a number of charges including burglary, theft and disorderly conduct. She has no prior criminal history and is currently free on bond.
