A 23-year-old Richlandtown, Bucks County man has been charged with stealing a safe filled with cash from a restaurant on Rt. 309 in Center Valley.
Casey George Rowedder, of Cherry Street, was staying at the Knights Inn near Diana’s Cafe Oct. 4 when he allegedly broke in through a rear window and made off with employee paychecks, the eatery’s cash drawer and a safe that contained about $675, according to authorities cited in a WFMZ story.
According to the article, the safe and cash drawer were later found in a maintenance closet at the motel.
Court documents show that Rowedder is charged with burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary, criminal trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property and loitering or prowling at night time.
Following a preliminary hearing before Judge Michael Pochron Friday, he was committed to Lehigh County Prison in lieu of $50,000 straight bail, which as of Wednesday had not been posted, per court records.
A preliminary hearing in his case is scheduled to be held Oct. 11 at 1:30 p.m. in Pochron’s court, according to records.
