Kennerdell man charged in burglaries

GROVE CITY — A Kennerdell man has been charged with three burglaries of two businesses in Grove City.

Anthony Healey, 36, stands charged with three counts each of burglary and theft.

Healey pried back siding at 6:50 a.m. Sept. 11 of Sherwin Williams, 1404 W. Main St., to go through a wall, police said.

Once inside, Healey stole spray paint, putty knives and other items valued at $3,689, police said.

Two days later, Healey pried open a rear door at 1:52 a.m. Sept. 12 at Save A Lot, 105 Mill St., and stole a computer and other merchandise valued at $292, police said.

At 2:54 a.m. Oct. 4, Healey returned to Save A Lot and stole $1,251 in merchandise, police said.

While police were responding to the Oct. 4 break-in, they spotted a dark colored sedan nearby and recognized it from surveillance footage that showed it being in the parking lot during the previous Save A Lot case.

Healey was in the car but was told he was free to leave after telling police he was lost and looking for Walmart, police said.

In reviewing other surveillance footage, police found distinct features of Healey’s car that matched the car seen after the previous break-in at Save A Lot.

State police in Venango County executed a search warrant Nov. 6 at Healey’s home and found two ski masks that were consistent with the masks the perpetrator of the Save A Lot burglaries wore, police said.

They also found cans of spray paint and putty knives that were identified by a Sherwin Williams employee, including items sold only by Sherwin Williams, police said.

Healey faces a preliminary hearing at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 22 before District Judge D. Neil McEwen, Pine Township.
