Scott Township police have withdrawn the most serious charges against one of the three men accused of stealing tires and other equipment from a Greentree Road auto shop last month.
Felony charges of criminal trespassing, theft and conspiracy against Ryan Pawlowski, 19, of Scott, were withdrawn during his preliminary hearing on Dec. 13. It was not immediately known why the charges were withdrawn or if police would re-file them at a later date.
Disorderly conduct and retail theft charges were reduced to non-traffic citations at his hearing with District Judge Gary M. Zyra.
Police said Pawlowski, Devin Miller, 20, of Pittsburgh, and William Godzinski, 19 of Scott, entered the NTB auto shop property on Nov. 17 and took an undisclosed number of tires from the business. Police also accused Pawlowski of taking a diagnostic scanner from the auto shop on Nov. 13.
Miller and Godzinski are each scheduled for preliminary hearings on theft and conspiracy charges on Jan. 31.
