A Curwensville man accused of criminal trespass for allegedly entering a residence through a bedroom window waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during centralized court in Clearfield County.
Chancellor Michael Shaw, 23, is charged with two felony counts of criminal trespass, a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia and a summary count of criminal mischief. He remains in the Clearfield County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Aug. 19, police were called to a possible residential burglary on Walton Street in Decatur Township. When they arrived on the scene, Shaw was inside the home.
He allegedly entered the locked residence by damaging a screen in a bedroom window. The residents confirmed that he was not permitted to be in their home. Shaw was in possession of a small metallic container that had suspected methamphetamine residue in it. He told the troopers that he had injected the drug earlier in the day, according to the report.
