28 November 2022- A Chambersburg man fails to post bail after being charged with with burglary and more. Adam Tyler Monn is charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor conspiracy of theft. His bail, which he failed to post, was set at $25,000.
On October 23rd just before midnight, Chambersburg PD officers responded to a home on Benedict Avenue for reports of a burglary. The victim told police that he received a Ring doorbell notification within the last half hour where the live feed ended almost immediately after it was triggered. Upon arrival, the victim told police that his 2012 Audi A5 was removed from the garage and his house was rummaged through. In the house, a lock box and safe containing silver coins, silver certificates, collector coins, and a vehicle title to the Audi were affected. Officers found no signs of forced entry.
While officers were on scene investigating, Adam Monn was allegedly contacting the victim by text and phone call. The victim answered the phone and Monn allegedly denied breaking into the victim’s residence, as well as saying his vehicle broke down and he was stranded on Route 15. When asked about his location, Monn allegedly texted the victim saying :you just gave me to the cops and why so I can go to jail?”.
A search warrant was issued for Monn’s location on that night, allegedly revealing he was not stranded on I-15 but was in the Borough of Chambersburg during the time of the burglary. Borough security cameras showed Monn turning off I-81 onto Wayne Avenue to Orchard Drive and pass in front of the Chambersburg PD station. Monn’s car is then seen parked behind the victim’s house before leaving the vehicle before coming back with items in his hands. Monn’s phone records then show him leaving the borough shortly after the phone call to police was placed.
Adam Monn is behind bars on $25,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for December 6th.
