A Phoenixville man was charged with burglary earlier this month after he orchestrated the theft and sale of several video games belonging to a man who shares his address, Phoenixville Police are reporting.
William Howard Dunn, 48, faces charges of burglary, criminal trespassing, theft by unlawful taking, and receiving stolen property stemming from the August 3 incident.
According to court documents, a resident of the 100 block of High Street told police on August 4 that someone had entered his room without permission and stolen six Playstation 3 games the previous evening.
On August 9 at 11:49 p.m., police interviewed Dunn, a resident of the house and then a suspect in the crime, and he admitted to entering the room with another unnamed subject, who took the games.
Dunn and his accomplice then took the games, valued at $116.94, to the Gamestop in Royersford to pawn them. When they were displeased with the offer, the pair drove to Pottstown to sell them at an unknown location.
Dunn was charged for the crimes on September 5. He was arraigned on September 18, was released after posting $15,000 bail, and faces preliminary hearing on September 27.
