Residential burglary suspects in Kennett Township nabbed after transaction

On Sept. 15, and Sept. 16, Kennett Township Police investigated two residential burglaries that occurred in the 600 block of Cope Road, Kennett Township.

The burglaries were discovered when the victim noticed a suspicious withdraw from a Fulton Bank account and missing property from their residence.

On Sept. 16, three subjects, James Dawson, 39, of Coatesville, Justin Saunders, 39, of Christiana, and Charles Francis, 64, of Coatesville, attempted to cash a check at a Fulton Bank in Delaware County. The bank alerted the Pennsylvania State Police of the fraudulent transaction.

Investigation by the Kennett Township Police and the Pennsylvania State Police led to the arrest of all three for burglary and theft related crimes.

Saunders was found to be in possession of the victim’s checkbook at the time of the arrest as well as several tools from the victim’s shed. They are currently being held at George Hill Correctional Facility pending extradition to Chester County.
