A drug bust led to the arrest of a suspected serial burglar in the city of Butler.
Butler City Police told our news partners at WPXI-TV that David Eberhardt, 26, had been terrorizing the city for more than a month, breaking into homes with one mission: to steal guns that he would sell to get money for drugs.
Officers raided homes on West Penn and South streets earlier this week. They confiscated four stolen guns, crack cocaine, cash and arrested six people in total, including Eberhardt. City police believe they solved at least four of the nine recent home burglaries in the city with Eberhardt’s arrest.
More arrests are expected.
