Man behind bars after allegedly trying to break into neighbor’s home in Fannett Township

12 January 2023- A Concord, PA man is looking at multiple felonies after allegedly trying to break into his neighbor’s home at night with multiple firearms. Marshall Tucker Daihl is behind bars on $200,000 bail after being charged with felony burglary, felony criminal trespass, misdemeanor loitering/prowling, and summary disorderly conduct.

On January 11th around 10:50pm, Pennsylvania State Police Troopers were dispatched to a home on Path Valley Road in Fannett Township for reports of an active burglary involving Marshall Daihl attempting to get into the victim’s home and vehicle. When arriving, police allegedly canvased the area to find Daihl but he was not found. It was at this point that police interviewed the victims who said that they saw Daihl try to break into their home through a locked door, yanking on the door and trying to get in. Daihl also allegedly walked to a parked car in the driveway and began attempting to enter the vehicle but was again foiled by locks. One of the victims was positive the perpetrator was Daihl after seeing his face and knowing he was a neighbor a few houses down.

Police were also alerted to the fact Daihl’s vehicle was parked partially in their driveway and partially in their yard on a steep embankment. In the car Daihl left on the victims’ property was a loaded 30-30 lever action rifle, a .44 caliber lever action riffle, and a 410 caliber shotgun. Daihl also allegedly left two items on the porch of the victim’s home, which appeared to be ammunition cans. In one was .223 ammunition, with the other containing loaded 7.62 caliber magazines.

Continued talks with the victims showed Daihl was allegedly walking in just his boxers along the Narrows Branch Creek by their home.

Daihl was involved in a similar incident in the area which saw him arrested on December 16th for criminal trespass, loitering/prowling, and DUI. During the incident, Daihl allegedly admitted to using methamphetamine and marijuana.

Daihl is behind bars on $200,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for January 24th.
