FARRELL — Southwest Mercer County Regional police have arrested a Farrell man for breaking into a home on Roemer Boulevard after police sought him for questioning him about a report of shots fired on Farrell Terrace.

Brian Cain, 22, of 1115 Bond St., was taken to jail Thursday on charges of criminal trespassing and conspiracy to commit criminal trespassing.

A second man is being sought.

The shots fired call came in at 3:30 a.m. March 15 in the 1300 block of Farrell Terrace, police said.

A woman in the neighborhood told police that she looked out her window after hearing the gunfire and saw a white-over-black sport-utility vehicle heading west on Farrell Terrace, police said.

An SUV matching the description was found parked in the 1100 block of Roemer, police said. As police approached, four to six men got out of the SUV and entered the home of Tanisha Norris at 1120 Roemer, police said.

Police said they searched the SUV and found two firearms in the glove compartment.

Police obtained a search warrant for the home and entered it at 7:30 a.m.

Norris told police that three men broke into her home and refused to leave when she asked them to, police said.

The men stayed in the house for about an hour before slipping out a back door, police said.

She identified Cain as one of the men, police said.

Cain faces a preliminary hearing at 9:15 a.m. April 10 before District Judge Ronald E. Antos, Farrell.
