[Source] - A Uniontown man is facing burglary charges after police said he broke into his children’s home and stole several things, including Christmas presents. Police said Amanda Miller came home about 5 p.m. Friday and saw Myron Rose, 33, running from her Cinder Road home carrying a large bag. Channel 11’s Courtney Brennan reported Miller was able to identify Rose because he is her ex-boyfriend and the father of two of her three children. Miller alerted police and officers arrested Rose a few days later. Inside the bag detectives said they found electronics, jewelry and several Christmas presents.
“We’ll never get that stuff back,” the children’s great-grandmother said about the Christmas gifts. Police told Brennan that Rose broke into the mobile home by climbing underneath and digging a hole through the floor. “What kind of person would make a hole in the floor and break in a house to steal his own kids’ Christmas presents?” the great-grandmother said. Rose is facing burglary, criminal trespassing, theft by unlawful taking and criminal mischief charges. He remains in jail on $50,000 bond. “When the guys down at the prison find out what he did, they don’t take kindly to people who steal from kids,” the great-grandmother said.
If we’ve learned anything this week I guess it’s that this is pretty standard behavior in Pennsylvania. No surprise that the same state who produced people who can’t handle losing a basketball game is home to dude’s who just up and steal their kid’s Christmas presents through the floor of a mobile home. Just PA being PA I guess.
Although I gotta say, outside of the guy who burglarized his own children, the star of the story here is clearly the kids’ great-grandmother they interviewed. Love how hard-headed she is. Love her swagger. Love her bragging about the people in jail that are going to beat up this guy for stealing presents and saying “We’ll never get that stuff back” about 5 seconds after the cops found all “that stuff” and brought it back. Amazing. Just some 105 year old woman who has no clue what she’s talking about ranting and raving like it’s the 1930′s. Stick a microphone in her face, ask her some questions and get out of her way.
