LOCK HAVEN - Two suspects in a burglary spree that resulted in a loss of $41,916 in property for local governments and businesses remain jailed as they move through the county court system.
Robert Benjamin Seese, 26, of Jersey Shore, waived a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Clinton County Central District Court in connection with a series of break-ins between April 1 and Nov. 27, 2010.
Seese and his co-defendant in one or more of those break-ins, Christopher Richard Dullen-Lucas, 23, of Blanchard, who was arraigned Tuesday, remain in the Clinton County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000 bail.
The next legal step for Seese either is first-call or arraignment in Clinton County Court. Dullen-Lucas faces a first-appearance hearing in central court next week.
State police at Lamar said both men were involved in breaking into four township municipal buildings and several businesses and stealing items valued at $41,916.
The municipal buildings were in Bald Eagle, Liberty, Curtin and Beech Creek townships. Dunkle Transport, JC Graphics, Central PA Tent Rentals, Dotterer Equipment and Tip Top Knotch Landscaping were listed as the victimized businesses.
Police said they interviewed Dullen-Lucas about the burglaries.
Dullen-Lucas told officers he and Seese had discussed the break-ins casually before actually committing themselves to the acts, according to police.
