Blair County Man Charged With Theft

State police say a Blair County man is behind bars following a months-long investigation into an alleged burglary at a Hollidaysburg business last year.

Troopers say on September 9th, authorities were contacted to investigate an alleged break-in at Zmac’s Riverside Pub.

Authorities say surveillance video reportedly showed a man, later identified as 27-year-old Dylon Gardner, breaking in to the building, through a side door.

Police say Gardner reportedly stole a Pennsylvania Skills Machine from the business, with approximately $12,000 cash inside.

Upon further investigation, troopers say the stolen machine was found a few weeks later, covered in spray paint, in a nearby wooded area.

Investigators say Gardner was later taken into custody after police located him on a dirt bike that had been spray painted with the same paint used on the Skills machine.

According to online court records, Gardner is being housed at the Blair County Prison on charges of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.

His bail has been set at $100,000.
