Man wanted in Lower East Side break-ins


A Lower East Side man is wanted in the alleged burglaries of several houses in his neighborhood.

New Castle police have charged John Glenn Salomon, 27, of 231 N. Crawford Ave.

He is accused in burglaries and theft of copper pipe and water meters from vacant duplexes on Pine Street and Martin Street and houses on Countyline and Mulberry streets, which reportedly occurred in February and March.

He allegedly admitted to police in interviews in March that he had broken into the houses and stealing copper pipe and water meters.

Following DNA testing and a three-month investigation, police charged him Wednesday with three counts each of burglary, criminal trespass and theft, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
