Reynoldsville Man Waives Hearing on Criminal Trespass Charges

BROCKWAY BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A Reynoldsville man waived his hearing on Wednesday on charges related an investigation into an alleged break-in.

Court documents indicate the following charges against 29-year-old Brandon Mark Huffman were waived for court on Wednesday, February 26:

– Criminal Trespass-Enter Structure, Felony 3
– Defiant Trespass Actual Communication To, Misdemeanor 3

The charges have been transferred to the Jefferson County Court of Common Pleas.

Huffman remains lodged in the Jefferson County Jail serving a sentence of up to a year confinement on previous charges.

The charges stem from an investigation into a burglary that occurred in late June 2019.

According to a criminal complaint, around 12:15 a.m. on June 29, 2019, Trooper Bowser, of the DuBois-based State Police, was dispatched to a burglary in progress on Broad Street in Brockway Borough, Jefferson County.

The complaint states that as Trooper Bowser neared the scene, he was informed the suspect had fled the scene in a dark-colored pickup truck. He then spoke with a witness who allegedly reported that two people had shown up at the residence, approached a shed on the property, and one of the people had allegedly crawled through a window of the shed and began handing items through the window to the second person outside, who then placed them into a pickup truck.

According to the complaint, the witness indicated the vehicle looked like one belonging to the property owner’s son, who was not permitted to be on the property.

Trooper Bowser then spoke to the victim, and was given her son’s information, and told her son and his wife were already informed they were not permitted on the property.

Trooper Bowser then made contact with the victim’s son, Brandon Mark Huffman.

According to the complaint, Huffman admitted to being on the property on the night in question, and also admitted to entering the shed through an unlocked window to retrieve some of his belongings.

The complaint states Huffman stated he handed the items to his wife through the window, and she placed them in his truck. He also said both he and his wife had permission to be on the property. The complaint notes he was unable to provide any documentation of the permission.

The charge was filed through Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office on January 23.

Court documents indicate Huffman was sentenced to a minimum of seven months to a maximum of one year less one day confinement on one second-degree misdemeanor count of simple assault on December 28, 2019, related to a shooting incident in Reynoldsville in October 2019.
