A holiday burglar didn’t get far before Sewickley police caught up to him inside a local business early Thanksgiving morning.
Adrian Foody, 20, of Lakeside Drive, Canonsburg, and fomerly of Sewickley, is now facing charges that include underage drinking, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, burglary, and criminal attempt.
Police said Foody had been drinking alcohol before he attempted to break into Sewickley Traditions and the Orioles Cleaners around 4:30 a.m Wednesday. Police said Foody kicked the glass windows on the front doors, but didn’t get inside the businesses.
Instead, police said Foody went over to the Citgo gas station at Chestnut and Beaver streets. There, police said a witness watched Foody break the window at Citgo and go inside.
Police arrived and ordered Foody several times to put his hands in the air. Police said Foody did not respond. A Sewickley officer found Foody passed out inside an office where he was taken to the ground and arrested.
Police found a bottle of spiced rum in a backpack across the street outside the Sewickley Confectionery. Police said a shoe print on the windows at the other businesses also matched Foody’s shoe.
He was taken to the police station and released to his parents. Leetsdale, Sewickley Heights, and Edgeworth police assisted.
