Rockton Man Waives Hearing in Burglary Case

DUBOIS – A Rockton man accused of breaking into cars, a mobile home and a garage waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday during centralized court in DuBois.

Blaise Andrew Ellinger, 19, was charged with two counts of burglary, two felony counts of criminal trespass and misdemeanor counts of theft by unlawful taking, theft from a motor vehicle and loitering/prowling at night time by state police after he was found inside a trailer in Union Township.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Jan. 11 police responded to a report of a suspicious person in the area of Bottom Road.

The complainants said they saw a Caucasian man wearing black clothing looking in the windows of homes and cars in the area. They reported this man entered a nearby trailer but he did not come out.

After the owner granted permission, the trooper entered the residence where he found Ellinger, who matched the description given by witnesses.

A search of his person uncovered Cadillac car keys, a bottle of cologne and a blue container of razor blades.

When he was interviewed at the police station, Ellinger allegedly admitted to stealing the keys and cologne from a car that was parked near a residence on Bottom Road.

He also admitted to taking the razor blades from a single-car garage in the area, according to the report.

Ellinger remains incarcerated on $10,000 bail.
