HIGHSPIRE, Pa. — Highspire Borough Police have arrested Tyler Gentry of Middletown on a burglary charge, after he allegedly burglarized a home on Sunday. 

On Sept. 4, police received a report from the victim who lives on the 200 block of Broad Street. She told police that she left her home that night with friends around midnight, and when she returned around 5 p.m., she noticed someone had been in her house, and had gone through her belongings. 

The victim also told police that she noticed that photos of she and her ex-boyfriend, Gentry, were torn and thrown in the toilet water of both bathrooms in the home, police say. 

Police also state that the victim told them over $700 in cash and the family dog were also taken. The victim also claims that Gentry texted her a photo of he and the dog together in his car. 

When police searched the property, they found no sign of forced entry, but noticed that the gas grill from outside had been moved from up against the wall to under the rear deck, so it could be climbed up in order to gain entry to the deck door.

Police claim that Gentry was also recently arrested for domestic violence against the victim.
