Also charged in the case is Casey Rowedder, 23, of Cherry Street, Richlandtown, who authorities said previously was a guest at the nearby Knights Inn when he allegedly broke into and burglarized the Upper Saucon Township cafe.

According to court records Bleam is charged with burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and criminal trespassing–all of which are second degree felonies–as well as misdemeanor theft and misdemeanor receiving stolen property.

Following a preliminary arraignment before District Judge Daniel Trexler Monday morning, Bleam was committed to Lehigh County Prison in lieu of $25,000 straight bail. A preliminary hearing in his case is scheduled to be held before Trexler on Nov. 13 at 1:45 p.m., according to court papers.
